How to Protect Babies from the Summer Sun – LiveScience

“Live Science and Dr. Michele S. Green can advise you on how to take good care of your baby with effective protection from the summer sun. Dr. Green, dermatologist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York, reminds us that sunscreens are not tested on infants, so no one knows what side effects their chemicals might have on babies. “

“Sunscreens labeled as “organic” or “all natural” are no safer to use on babies than regular sunscreens, Dr. Green says. The best way to protect babies from the sun is for parents to keep them in the shade, or to create shade with an umbrella or canopy.”
