Do babies Need Sunscreen?

YES, babies do need sunscreen.

The harmful UVA and UVB rays emitted by the sun can lead to long-term skin damage and can even cause a nasty and painful sunburn. Skin damage can start to show at an early age of 4 years and can eventually lead to premature aging.

What To Look For In A Baby Sunscreen

Most baby sunscreen shoppers focus solely on the SPF rating, SPF is only a measure of protection against sunburn which is generally caused by UV rays.

There are certain points to consider before purchasing a Baby Sunscreen. These are-

Active Ingredients

Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are two mineral-based physical filters that are normally gentler on the skin because they don’t need additional chemicals to provide protection.


SPF stands for sun protection factors. The SPF number represents the amount of exposure to sunlight. Sunscreen SPF can range from as low as 15 to as high as 100. Most medical experts agree that for babies you should use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 30.

Water Resistance

No sunscreen is actually waterproof. And only sunscreens designed for 40 and 80 minutes of consistent water exposure are allowed by the FDA to claim that they are water-resistant.

Ease of use

Baby sunscreen comes in a range of formulations, including sprays, sticks, and traditional creams. Most experts recommend the stick because it’s the easiest to apply to wriggly children.


Can babies under 6 months wear sunscreen?

Sunscreen is OK to use on babies older than 6 months. Younger babies should use other forms of sun protection. The best way to protect babies from the sun is to keep them in the shade as much as possible. In addition, dress your baby in protective clothing, a hat with a brim and sunglasses.

Can I put sunscreen on my 8 week old baby?

 Sunscreen recommendations are different for younger and older babies, so consider your baby’s age before you start slathering. For newborns and babies under 6 months: The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends keeping babies under 6 months out of direct sunlight.

Is SPF 50 good for babies?

For newborns and babies under 6 months, The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) says that parents can apply a minimal amount of baby-safe sunscreen with an SPF of 30–50 (no lower than SPF 15, though) to the face, back of the hands and tops of the feet.

Can newborns go in the sun?

Babies should be kept out of direct sunlight until they’re 6 months old, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics

How do I get sunscreen off my baby’s face?

Grab a face washer, run it under some warm water, but not too hot. Wring it out, hold it over your face for around 10 seconds, and then gently wipe away the oil and the sunscreen. Repeat if you need until all the sunscreen is gone. I have never had as much success with a cream or gel based makeup remover.

What should I look for in baby sunscreen?

Find a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) between 15 and 50. Generally, 15 or 30 is fine for most babies. Opt for a sunscreen with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide for the most sensitive parts of baby’s bitty body, including the nose, cheeks, tops of the ears, and shoulders.

What happens if a baby gets sunburned?

Apply cool compresses to the burned areas or bathe the child in cool water. You also can give acetaminophen to help relieve the pain. (Check the package for appropriate dosage for her age and weight.) If the sunburn causes blisters, fever, chills, headache, or a general feeling of illness, call your pediatrician.

Should I wash baby sunscreen off?

Sunscreens do wear and wash off. Get them back on while skin is dry and let it have time to absorb into the skin, or they don’t do any good! Remember those hidden places like the back of the ears and in between toes!

How quickly can a baby get sunburned?

Too much exposure to direct sunlight, however, can have serious health consequences. In particular, you’ll need to be mindful of your baby developing a sunburn, a condition that can appear in as little as 20 minutes.
