  • I go by the number and I like the waterproof lotions. They all work for me. I would go with a number 50 - 70.

  • Just make sure that it is made for babies...the higher the SPF the better. Put a hat and some little shades on the baby too! ;)

  • Waterbabies works best for us...Neutrogena and others seemed to sting her eyes.
