I keep reading all sorts of scary stuff about every single type of sunblock. Anyone have a handle on this stuff or can recommend a good article that summarizes the choices and risks?
So far I've been covering the baby up and not using sunblock on her but that gets harder as she gets more alert and interested. She loved a baby pool last weekend and we're going to the beach for a week in July and I'm hoping she'll love the waves as much as her mama. Even in a sun hat and full coverage swim suit we still have some sensitive skin exposed...
With DD1 we didn't use sunblock until she was 1+. She was still a babe that first summer. Then we used Aveeno Baby with crazy high SPF but after using it for a few years she and I broke out in a itchy red rash this past spring when we were on a trip to Florida. I read later that that itchy rash seems to be associated with the Aveeno Baby. So I bought a Mustela infant sunblock for the babe to use. And then I heard that physical blocks are bad.
What do you all think or plan?
