I have 3 older children and we spend a lot of time at the pool in the summer. They have tables with umbrellas and I plan to spend a good bit of time under the umbrella but there are times I'm going to need to be closer to the pool. What is the best way to keep baby covered?? Thanks!

sunsafe.com has some good products. I would be sure baby's totally covered if you're going to be spending a lot time in the sun.  All the items on sunsafe.com have spf 50+.

 

Here's the link to the baby stuff:

This is a Canadian site but I'm sure you can find something in the States.  I like this one because it goes all the way to wrists and ankles.  I have one for both my DS and DD.

We use sunscreen from Episencial. Their products are all natural, organic and free from parabens, phthalates and fragrances.  Plus their packaging is biodegradable and their factory is solar powered!!!

My little one's skin is pretty sensitive and I've never noticed any type of reaction.

 

Best wishes!

My friend had a great sun suit last year for her newborn while she chased the older one. long pants, long sleeves plus a hat and she was pretty set.
