The days are finally here where baby and I can enjoy the outdoors! We go for weekly walks with our stroller walking mama's group and late afternoon walks around our neighbourhood and Ive been so worried about her skin because she is so fair that she is likely to burn.
I kept her out of the sun or indoors if I could before she turned 6 months because everything I've read says it isn't safe to use sunscreen on them any younger. The minute that child turned 6 months though we began using Banana Boats Natural Reflect on her head to toe. It is a bit thicker and you do have to work it in but I wouldn't expect anything less for a baby sunscreen! I love feeling secure that she is protected well.
For myself I'm in love with the Silk Hydration™ Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 ($10.99) the texture is silky smooth and unlike the Banana Boat Babies it actually melts onto the skin and rubs in with ease. In a rush this is a great feature! Its light weight, non-greasy, has hydrating ribbons that includes shea butter, is waterproof and has a great coconut scent.
The Silk Hydration™ After Sun Moisturizer ($9.99) feels amazing after a day in the sun. It includes ribbons of aloe which has a nice cooling effect. These 2 make the perfect duo and a great must have for any beach day!
