A baby’s skin; what else is there to say other than their softness and well, delicateness? As babies’ skin easily loses moisture, a brief sunny day out may cause their skin to dry, which can, in turn, lead to many discomforts. Additional, the harmful rays may hurt and damage your baby’s skin. 
Well, thanks to sunscreens, you won’t have to fret as much.

Can you use sunscreens for babies under 6 months?

Babies have such thin, delicate skin, especially for those that are below six months of age and requires another form of sun protection rather than the typical sunscreens. 

So, only use sunscreens specially formulated for babies when they really need to be out under the sun for awhile. Often, you should keep babies under shades as much as possible, and dress them in protective clothing to keep heat ray away!
