So Long Summer-Do you put sunscreen on your kids all year long?

I always put it on my son's face bc he's so fair skinned. Don't know where he gets it from!

  • Yes, Absolutely. My Son was born with Albinism and we have learned so much from his specialists. We were told to put sunscreen on him all year long. We took classes and learned how you can actually burn easier in the Winter than in the Summer. It's wild the things you learn when they break it down for you.

  • Not always, just when we are going to be out for the day or swimming.

  • I don't either unless I know we are going to be out for the day. The last time he really needed it was at the amusement park.

  • No, just during the summer. My kids have darker skin than me, so I'm the one that tends to burn.

  • No, just when we're out in warm sun...we live in Indiana, there's no need.

  • Yes, with my 2 red headed children we go through alot of sunscreen. My DH and I Are both very fair and we always joke that we're surprized that our children weren't transparent.
