Mothercare do a factor 50 block that's suitable from birth.

Hi, I use Ambre Solaire SPF50+ for my dd or the Nivea children's one which is coloured so you can see where it goes.

Quite thick, it will keep its shape on your hand, but it rubs in easily. A bit like E45, but smoother.

I always use the banana boat stuff, because it didn't affect dds skin. Nivea was awful. I do know other people who swear by it though - bit of trial and error really. BTW BB is cheap at Costco at the mo (no - I'm not on commission)

Janbo, there's an article in NOW magazine on suncreams which covers dry, sensitive and children skin. It also gives a list of different products and prices. HTH

I use a Hawaiian Tropic sun cream on my baby called Baby Faces, it is the only one that does not irritate her eyes as I had a nightmare when we went abroad and every cream made her eyes stream.
