Please help. My DS is 5 months. Whether I should be using sun block or not on him? If so which one?

strictly speaking he should be kep out of direct sunlight but you can get baby suncreams so you could put some of that on exposed areas. I'd choose one with good UVA and UVB ratings

I use the Simple baby sun cream. Agree babies shouldn't be exposed to sun, but that's practically impossible so just put it on exposed skin so any contact with the sun won't damage him. Buy a good uv-blocking parasol too.
