    Sunscreens for 3 month old

    My husband and I are going on vacation next week with our 3 month old and are looking for a sunscreen. I have tried lavera, but it caused him to have a rash. Does anybody have any suggestions for sunscreens for sensitive skin?

    I've been using the creamy Lavera sunscreen and am wondering if the spray will be more gentle.

    Dear dhirsch,

    An article that I found on this

    http://www.babycenter.com/404_what-k...abies_12504.bc

    The article is by a reasonably well published US paediatrician. Hope it is helpful.

    Check out Skin Deep, a Cosmetic Safety Database for the latest list of safest, most effective sunscreens for 2008. According to the site, some of the worst offenders are leading brands like Coppertone, Banana Boat, and Neutrogena. I was happy to find Badger Sunscreen SPF 30 on the top 10 list again this year.

    MilkMonster,
    Where can you find the Badger sunscreen in Hong Kong?

    Yikes, that site you sent has just scared me....found out the diaper creams I have been using were rated as moderately hazardous. I am horrified.

    We use Mustela and Organic Best's sunscreen with my 7 month year old.

    My midwife warned me though that babies shouldn't get that much sun until they are 12 months old as their risk for sun cancer increases 12 times!
