Ok, we are in the middle of the winter and I'm asking about sunscreen. I'm not crazy, just planing ahead. My family lives in PR and I always like to be prepared in case we need to go down there.

So, which kids sunscreen would you recommend. Up til last summer we were using Neutrogena baby, which is excellent. But I'm willing to try something else, if anyone has any suggestions?

  • My sister uses Sunbabies, I think that's what it's called. She also uses one of those sunscreen sticks for her boys' faces, and makes them wear wide rimmed hats. lol It sounds a little extreme, but we are white...I mean WHITE.

  • We use Aveeno Baby. My LO has had allergic reactions to so many others and this one didn't make her eczema flare up so it was worth the 16 dollars.

  • I use it all year round (we live in Fl) I don't really care about the brand but I always use 70 SPF or higher

  • We have used several brands but try to get as high as an SPF as we can find. I have both my kids wear the UV rash guard swim shirts as well when they are in the water. My youngest is really fair skinned so I put hats with a brim on as much as possible. Bannana Boat Kids sunblock(SPRAY) isn't too greasy.

  • I use a spray on primarily, but carry a stick in the diaper bag for touch-ups.
