With Spring and Summer just around the corner, I need to pick up some sunblock for my 7 month old. Can anyone recommend one? Have you had better luck with any particular brand?
Thanks so much!

Blue Lizard, they make one specially for babies and it's 100% chemical and fragrance free.

For one that young, I'd highly recommend California Baby No Fragrance. We really like it because it works, doesn't have a lot of the junk others do, and it's easy to tell where we've already applied it so we don't waste. Lavera makes a good one too, but it's a little more difficult to find.
Have fun in the sun!!

Arbonne Baby Care Sunblock - I'm a cancer survivor and we use only the physical blocker sunblocks, not the chemical ones. Arbonne's is zinc oxide based, SPF 30 water resistant, no chemicals, mineral oil, phthalates, propylene glycol, parabens, or any artificial dye or fragrance.
Best thing is that you can get it for less per ounce than the retail of the others mentioned as suggestions to you.
Email me for ordering information.
To your healthy, happy summer!

California Baby Sunscreen is great. We especially like the solid to reapply during our time out and about.

My son is allergic to almost all sunblocks, even the typically gentle and hypoallergenic ones, but the one that does work for us is Bert's Bees sunblock. The only drawback is that it is very thick and yellow so it can look funny if you don't rub it in well. The good part of that of course is that you are sure not to miss a spot! If it works on his super sensitive skin, it has to be gentle! I also use it in my baby so I don't have to buy two. Works great!
