That's it really. I know its been asked before but I can't find the thread. Off on holiday next month and would ideally like something super-high factor that is waterproof and only needs to be applied once. Suitable for a baby. Does this product exist? Don't mind spending a fortune if it's good. I got dreadfully burnt as a kid and don't want to take any risks with my very fair PFB.

We use the boots sol tan one. It definitely has a factor 30 which we use for my toddler. I'm not sure if the guidelines are 30 or 50 for babies to make sure they get some vitamin d. I'm pretty sure it's waterproof too (last years was..).

And it smells like holidays

Back again... Once a day is normally 8 hours so you might find you need to reapply. If your baby is out by 9am... As mine is!

Ultrasun is brilliant.

I wouldn't bother with the once a day as you will still need to reapply it if they swim. we use P30 but not sure if that is suitable for babies

Rash vests and long shorts all the way! Much easier! Then just a regular factor 50 on the other bits!

Boots Soltan came out v badly in recent tests. Not sure if it was the once a day stuff but put me right off.
