Any suggestions other than covering her in suncream when we go out.
Today we went to the zoo armed with rain coats etc. Luckily the rain held off and the sun did appear from behind the clouds for a brief second.
However it was cloudy and dd has got sunburnt cheeks blush
My other dc's are fine and dd1 is very blonde fair skin.
dd2 has strawberry blonde hair. Will i need to put cream on her when we go out even in the cloud ?
She also has eczema so have tried to avoind sun cream as this seemed to irritate when we used it on holiday.
Now feel very bad although dd doesn't seem to mind! sad

I thought ds had got sunburnt on his cheeks as a baby - he was teething !

That's what i am hoping LIZ but they feel warm would they do that if teething ?

Quite possibly. I was taking ds, then about 4/5 motnhs, up on the train to London to visit work and a lady commented on how he was teething . I said no and thought what an interfering old bint. Two days later out popped 2 teeth blush
