Which Sunscreens are Safest for your Baby? Part 2

By Jak Burke,

In the second part of our baby sunscreen guide we introduce you to the EWG safe list of sunscreens.These sunscreens pose a LOW health threat in terms of the ingredients used on those products. Baby Does NYC urges parents to check all products with their pediatrician before using these sunscreens.

 

Before you use sunscreen follow these two guides.

1)    Sunscreen for babies is your LAST resort, instead dress your baby in light sunscreen clothing to protect their sensitive skin,  buy approved UV filter baby sunglasses. Place a wide-rimmed hat on your baby, work around the sun and don’t go out when it is strongest, seek shade and bring shade like an umbrella and a small portable baby tent and always keep your baby hydrated.

2)    Use sunscreen sparingly.
