Do your kids still tan even with sunscreen?

We put tons of sunscreen on Raymond to protect his baby skin. He is starting to get really tan though. Oh, and the daycare applies it all the time as well.

Yes, my son and I both tan with 50 on. It's a mix of English, Russian and native American skin type.

My oldest two do.  When my oldest was little sunscreen did nothing to change how she tanned.  If I slathered it on every hour she got just as tan as the days I forgot to put it on.  After doing some research about the effectiveness and cons to sunscreen I decided that my older two won't be wearing it. 

My third is a fair skinned redhead, I weighed the risks and she wears sunscreen.

We aren't sure yet how my youngest is reacting but I am pretty sure he won't be wearing sunscreen unless we are out in the sun for excessive amounts of time.

Anisa does. Ibrahim doesn't really. Maybe a little darker. He is more my skin tone.

Yep. I burn even with it, doesn't matter what kind or how much or often I apply. I turn purple.

Yes, both DS and I tan easily, even with sunscreen. FTR, I hate my flip flop tan, lol.
