Ah sunblock.. it's so so important, especially for a baby - their skin is BRAND new - you don't want to hurt it! Doctors say you can begin using sunscreen on an infant around 6 months.. and we did just that! We went to the beach the week Monroe turned 6 months, how fitting right? I did my thinking ahead and got him sunscreen of the same brand that he already has used lotion of.. meaning.. he was used to this brand/product and I figured it gave him the best chance at not having something funky happen :) We used Aveeno Baby Sunscreen and to this day.. LOVE IT. It goes on light and great but honestly provides amazing coverage. I remembered to re-apply every 2-3 hours and that seemed to work for him!
