What SPF do you use on your LO? SPF 50 for the entire family

How many times do you apply it? When they first go out and then usually an hour or so later. With the hot weather we've only been spending usually 30 min at a time outdoors, before i need my A/C LOL!

Do you apply it everytime you go outside to play? I try my best to remember to.

What brand do you use? Right now we're using Equate Baby sunscreen (left over from last summer) And Banana Boat Sport. Though i think Catie is reacting to the Banana Boat. I've noticed her getting a rash on her chest and back, and the only new thing is the Banana Boat sunscreen.

So far I've used it on him twice in his life. SPF 35 I think.

I'm a big fan of covering up from about 11 to 3 then no sunscreen any other time.

If we're spending a full day outside with no chance of cover, I'll put some on him.

I usually use 15 or 20 on me and get the "natural" stuff.

What SPF do you use on your LO? 45

What about you? 45

How many times do you apply it? Every few hours, or more often if she has been in the water.

Do you apply it everytime you go outside to play? I put it on every time I go outside because I have a sun allergy. Even driving in the car with the window down makes my arm break out in a gross hive rash. I put it on Echo if we are going to be outside for more than 20 minutes. She hasn't shown any sign of having the same issue that I do, thank goodness!

What brand do you use? Neutrogena Ultra Sheer dry touch. That stuff rocks! It's kind of pricey, but when you have to wear it everyday, you want it to be something you actually like.

What SPF do you use on your LO? I use 50 or more on him. Depending on what strengths the particular brand come in.

What about you? Eh...I am really bad. I generally use 25 or so myself...but I am bad about reapplying.

How many times do you apply it? On Liam: once in the morning and again before we head out. Usually we have one long play session outside, so I usually only apply twice (by long, I mean an hour or an hour-and-a-half). Although I guess if we went out twice in one day, I would apply again.

Do you apply it everytime you go outside to play? Me? No. But him, yes.

What brand do you use? I like Banana Boat Sport for him. It is the only one that does not bug his eyes if it runs into them or he rubs it into them. Whatever is on sale for me.

60 IIRC

What about you?

currently nothing, except lip balm

How many times do you apply it?

Every hr

Do you apply it everytime you go outside to play?

Typically between 10 AM-4 PM. Sometimes also later, depending on sunshine. When it's cloudy and we' re only outside for 15 minutes, I don't use suncream for LO[/I]

What brand do you use?

Neutrogena or California Baby. I might start using Avon Skin So Soft as bug repellant in July and August. IDK if it'll help however.
