We do a lot of shade, sunhats, using the sunshades on the stroller, rashguards when they're in the pool with a sunshade on their floats. We also bought this cabana Sun Smarties Family Beach Cabana Tent - One Step Ahead Baby for when they're out in the yard, we take them to the beach, or we go to the park.
6 months. I asked our pedi at their 4 month well check if we could use it now because we're going on vacation to the beach, and he said no. They have a high body surface to volume ratio and absorb too many of the chemicals.
We mostly keep her in the shade/indoors and use a hat but if we have to we do use sunscreen. But we specifically use California babies which is ok for little ones less than 6 months. The reason being is that it's formula doesn't absorb into the skin. I think it's zinc oxide and titanium something that sit on top of the skin and aren't absorbed. But I will warn you, California babies is expensive. I think I paid $20 for a 2 oz container. But it'll last us all summer and then some.
