sunscreen question

So, the baby sunscreen says not to use until 6 months. Remy is nearly 5 months, any big risk/harm? It'd just be for on her ankles/calves when we're on walks (where the shade doesn't cover, so we don't have to put a blanket over her in this crazy heat)

:lurk:

I would say she is close enough to the age... also, the stuff made for babies is much gentler than the "regular" stuff. Just be sure to get the lotion stuff and not the spray on foam stuff. I have found that the foam stuff leaves a really gross, greasy, film on their skin Sad

*Lurker*

Huh, I guess I never read that far...only that it was for infants lol. But my son is 3 months old and at a few weeks old (probably 4-5 weeks) we went to the pool and I put sunscreen on him. I got the 100 SPF kind that's for infants. He's fine lol.

I would think it's okay Smile
