Sun protection for baby ??? JULY 2008
Ok, so I live in AZ and todays high is supposed to be about 85 degrees. Oh we are loving it...our 3 weeks or so of "spring" before summer hits. I took Cory out yesterday at 4pm only for about 30 min hike but I didn't even make it to the top of the hill before heading back. She doesn't really have a hat and doesn't like em much (plus she is in a front carrier) so I put sunblock on her. It was made for baby but I think really burned her eyes cuz she just rubbed and rubbed and started crying when I was bathing her last night.
So....for BTDT moms....what is essential for baby? I was thinking go get a sunhat and start getting her used to it, but I don't know about sunblock. R there any that don't sting babies eyes (since they all do after all have chemicals)????? Online it says clothing over baby but jeez I left her in a normal onesie yesterday and when I took the carrier off both her and I were soaked! And I didn't even feel like I was sweating too bad. Won't she overheat if I dress her in a booted onesie?? She def looked like she barely had any clothes on yesterday, which maybe isn't good??!!
I know go early or late, strong sun btwn 10a and 4p, which unfortunately seems like the only time I can go. Once summer hits jeez we won't be going out much at all except for the pool since even at 7am it is HOT HOT HOT and she goes down at 6pm. So I need to enjoy this WHILE I CAN!
If you live where it is hot, what sunblock have you used that is very baby friendly. I'd lather her in it if it was but jeez if it burns her eyes (she's an eye rubber) I hate to even get it on her face!!:(
