Baby Your Baby With Sunscreen

Baby Your Baby With Sunscreen - Health Council

“Be sure your summer plans include a big dose of sun protection for your baby’s thinner and more delicate skin, a pediatrician recommends. The best way to protect babies is to avoid direct sun exposure, especially between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., said Dr. Jay Joo, a pediatrician at UCLA Health.”

“A small amount of sunscreen can be applied to the hands and other exposed areas of skin on babies up to 6 months of age. Apply a tiny bit first to make sure the sunscreen doesn’t irritate their skin, he suggested. Liberal amounts of sunscreen can be used on babies over 6 months of age and older children, Joo said. Apply broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30. Put the sunscreen on your baby at least 15 minutes before going outside, and reapply every two hours and after the baby swims or sweats, Joo said.”
