How to put sunscreen on your baby

Applying sunscreen

Put a physical barrier between the sun and your child with a product that contains zinc oxide or titanium dioxide

Look for broad-spectrum coverage with an SPF of at least 15

Apply sunscreen before going outdoors, no matter the weather

Reapply every two hours or right after swimming or towel drying

Start with your baby's toes and feet, then move up his body

Get sunscreen in all of the creases

And between fingers and toes

Don't forget to turn your baby over to get the rest of his body and the back of his neck

Save your baby's face for last

Put a dab of sunscreen on his forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin

Apply it all the way to the hairline

Don't forget your baby's lips, neck, ears, and the top of his head

Age considerations

Under 6 months:

Opt for shade over direct sunlight

If protective clothing and shade are not available, put sunscreen on exposed skin

6 months and older:

Always apply sunscreen to the whole body when going outside

Hello, sunshine!
