sunscreen Lock Rss

Has anyone discovered a good sunscreen for sensitive skin? Now that the weather is warming up, sunscreen is a bit of a must, but we're looking for one that won't send his skin blotchy. Any suggestions?

hi sue smoo
my little man had a reaction to kids banana boat sunscreen. I've been using sunsense toddler milk for a while now and no reaction. I've got the roll on bottle heaps easier to put on.
hope this helps.
Sunscreen isn't recommended on any child under the age of 12mths. As there skin is porus (spell?) where they absorb the chemicals out of the sunscreen. So what are you supposed to do? Babies of such a young age should not be exposed to the sun. There are a couple of brands that are recommend from birth, these are zinc based sunscreens. Brands like the 'aquasun baby', and 'avene sensitive skin sunscreen' are suitable (available at chemists).
