Sunshine Kids Buggy Shade; Diapers.comI'm terribly aware of all the chemicals in things, and sunscreen is chock-full of them. And the recent sunscreen report made me nervous about slathering it on my skin. So, it's not going near my babies.
Infants have a high proportion of surface area, but low body weight, which means they absorb more chemicals than kids or adults. Plus, my twins are always putting their hands in their mouths and touching their eyes ... so, in short, babies and sunscreen do not mix in my book.
