Baby in the sun

advice in category: junior

Your baby’s sensitive skin has no protective mechanisms against sunbeams - a few minutes in the sun and the skin gets burnt and irritated. If you want your baby to be safe in the sun, choose sunscreens marked SPF 50+.

Make sure they are for children - only then do they guarantee safety, without the addition of substances that can cause allergies. Although you can use creams containing a mixture of chemical ingredients (that penetrate the upper layers of epidermis and absorb the energy of sunlight, processing it into harmless heat), it’s safer to use physical sunscreen, which doesn’t penetrate the skin and doesn’t cause allergies. Physical sunscreens work like mirrors - they reflect and diffuse sunbeams.

Apart from using sunscreen with high factors, make sure your baby doesn’t go into the open sun between 11 am and 3 pm. It shouldn’t lie on the beach naked. A thin top made of a breathable, natural fabric can be an extra protective layer against the sun. You have to cover your baby’s head with a small hat or a cap with an additional piece of fabric sewn at the back to cover the neck.
