Which sun screen for babies? DS is 2-months old and as much as I try to keep him out of the sun sometimes it doesn't always work in the buggy or the Bjorn. DS also has a trauma every time we try to pop a sunhat on him.
DH and I are very fair skinned and only use 'Sun Sense' factor 50+. We would burn even on a not very sunny day if out for a long time.
I looked up Sun Sense online and found 'Toddler Milk', but it doesn't seem suitable for 2-month olds, (given the name toddler...). I asked my HV who suggested olive oil, the idea of putting cooking oil on my babies skin, or mine for that matter, to protect it from the sun! seems stupid.
Any suggestions for delicate baby skin (who already has excema, generously donated by DH's genes).
Don't get me started on my HV, well wierd. She told me never to use Johnsons Baby Oil because it was full of petrol and that DS would get so overweight he wouldn't be able to lift his arms and legs if I kept feeding him (Cow & Gate disagreed when I contacted them). I am thinking of asking to change clinics so I don't have to see the HV's at this particular clinic as their advice is generally a little odd and I always have to ask someone else; pharmacist, Mumsnet, GP, friends from NCT.
