Not usually. If my kids are going to have prolonged exposure to the sun I use coconut oil.

-Do you put sunscreen on baby?: Not unless absolutely necessary. I usually just limit sun exposure until they are past 12 months old. 

-Are you picky about what brands you use?: I use Trader Joes brand usually.

-Do you use hats and sunglasses on baby?: Hats, yes. They never keep sunglasses on!

-Do you limit time in the sun?: yes!

-Do you have any other ways of protecting baby from sunburn?: Umbrellas and clothing that covers prime burn areas.

Do you think personally that it works? I'm not judging, I've used it myself, lol

My husband thought of this when he saw that idea on Pinterest:

My youngest has always worn her shades, lol. She doesn't like sun in her eyes so it was pretty easy convincing her to wear them. But she's always hated hats.

Yes, we use lots of sunscreen. I'm not picky about brands but I look for something that's high spf and low chemical.

No limit on the sun, we pretty much live outside most of the time.

I aim for shade, use umbrellas, sun tents, things like that.

Yes! We use the Baby Aveeno brand. That is the only brand we have used so far. Sometimes I use a hat. I don't limit but we don't stay out for very long.
