AMbre soleil is the only suncream DD wasn't allergic to when she was little, it didn't have so much MDGB (preservative) in it as the rest (I think that's what it was - she is much less sensitive now)
Still always buy it out of habit!

<checks time of thread> Did you sprint back to office NGHMN?

Made me feel pretty useless as dc1 is only 9 months and I've no idea what age I expect a child to do any of those things.

MinnieBar Fri 01-Apr-11 21:23:50

Done - ridiculously long and over-complicated though, and nigh on impossible to do on a phone

Woodlands Fri 01-Apr-11 21:29:10

Ditto Albrecht (8.5 months here)! I had a good guess but no idea really.

FickleFreckle Fri 01-Apr-11 22:15:42

done - suncream is a nightmare as dcs react to everything - if anyone knows a really good hypoallergenic skincream would appreciate a recommendation!

FickleFreckle Fri 01-Apr-11 22:16:11

suncream that is [sigh]

done. very glad there was no "have you ever used last year's suncream and then worried it hasn't given your child enough protection as it may be out of date"? question as i am very guilty of that!!

Done....I wish it was sunnier in Scotland, I would love to wear more suncream.

Done but agree with others that a comments box would be useful, i answered the questions with my eldest in mind but if it was my youngest i would have answered completely differently. She is allergic to most sunscreens and the rubbing action of other ones causes her skin to react. I know she has a rare condition which causes this but a comments box would have been handy to say this. So for her and on advise from the consultant dermatologist is to cover up in light weight cotton tops.

mnhq - can you check if my entry as gone through properly.

I entered my password in the email box [duh]
I tried to stop the page and correct it but don't know if I managed to change it in time!

More comments would have been useful as some of my answers, although truthful, will be misleading for the purposes of the survey, eg ds applies his own once a day suncream (Ultrasun - sorry Ambre Solaire wink) before school.

And as others have said: a delberate 15 minute period without sunscreen outwith the hours arond noon is not the same as "only sometimes wearing sunscreen".

My DH was trained in suncare so I know a fair bit about the subject (or at least I did while he was in that job). Still forget to apply it though blush need to get some as we are off to exotic Hastings next week

Agree there should've been space for different options like NOT sunbathing (I just answered it as 'being in the sun unprotected' ie when I forget sun block)

And for skin tone, that's a good one. I have olive skin and am often asked if I've been abroad or if I'm part Spanish/Italian etc. Im not - I am something like 1/32 Indian so maybe that explains it hmm

Mumbybumby Sat 02-Apr-11 20:01:38

I agree that some of the answers seem to contradict each other despite not actually being mutually exclusive.

ilovesprouts Sat 02-Apr-11 21:01:09

done it ,phew bit long winderdhmm

hormonesnomore Sat 02-Apr-11 21:13:40

Done, can't remember what age kids do what as mine are all old now grin

Agree that a space to enter skin & hair colour might make it more useful.
