    I took Billie for a short walk the other day... she had a hat on and was in her carrier facing inwards with her head on my chest. When we got back home OMG her little cheeks were pink! I felt so bad.. I let my little baby get sunburn! It wasn't too bad and didn't seem to bother her but I felt awful. :cry: Now I've been out and got some baby sunblock.

    I thought I'd share this to spare anyone else this guilt! Don't be fooled because its April and the sun doesn't feel that hot, or there's a cool breeze! Get sunblock and slosh it on thick!

    I agree! I took Helena out and it was grey and I had a hat on, but the next day she had a little tan (not a burn this time!)

    im due in july so do you reckon i should get some sun block in now? can you use it on newborns?

    i wont be exposing her to the sun but maybe its better to be safe than sorry??

    i know i sound really silly but ive had 2 winter babies so i really dont know what to do with a summer baby :dohh:

    I've been putting it on Alasdair all week...and I've been getting more and more sunburnt all week!

    Nikki, Ally was a July baby and I found it quite difficult to get a suncream suitable for newborns and in the end it was so cold anyway that he didn't actually need it! It rained the first time I took him out!!! Might be different this year obviously but maybe you could wait and see?

    :hugs:

    It happened to Lexie at the begginning of this week when we went to the park. I forgot to put her hat on ! :o And she got sunburnt on her cheeks , and arms. I smothered her in Sudacrem when we got home. I totally didn't think about suncream, with rushing around getting her bag ready. I still feel guilty for forgetting her hat and putting suncream on her. I have learnt my lesson ! Naughty mummy. I have since had suncream in her bag (Just incase)! - I never expected it to get so warm so it did'nt cross my mind. Poor thing.

    I have some Ambre Solar for Oliver, but I am so petrified of using it. I have a severe sun tan lotion allergy and have been hospitalised twice with it so far. I think I'm going to have to get hubby to put it on him. I'm not so worried about it flaring up on me, but the same reaction happening to Oliver. Don't wnat to make my poor baby that poorly, yet it's far better than skin cancer in later life :dohh:

    I have a bottle of waterproof stuff for swimming, an everyday one and a stick for the face, they are so expensive though! the stick was only $6, $10-12 for the tubes though and they aren't that big.
