First of all...I am posting this so YOU don't make the same mistake I did.
READ the labels of BABY SUNSCREEN. I didn't. I just slathered my pretty little 3 month up with the stuff when we hit up the beach for the first time last summer. It wasn't until later than night when I read the sunscreen label...and it said NOT to use on babies under the age of 6 months without a doctors permission. Ummm. My husband and I could have seriously poisoned our child. I asked our pediatrician about it and he said that the are ingredients in sunscreen that get absorbed into the skin and can cross into a baby's developing brain. DEAR GOD. Needless to say we stayed inside for the rest of the summer....and I still shudder with guilt and my stupidity.
