    Hi,

    My baby is only 6 weeks old so I am not planning on purposely exposing him to the sun but when I take him walking even with the hood up on pram the sun gets in and is sometimes on his face. As it is hot today do I need to put high sun protection on his face or put a muslin cloth or something over the pram so he is hidden completely? I've done that before but had some strange looks of people lol

    Thanks

    it's a hard one. i work in a hospital and was told Ricketts is on the rise because parents are putting too much sunblock on infants and affecting their vitamin d intake. i'm not saying to go stick you little ones in the midday sun hehe but a careful balance. i don't use suncream on my bub unless he's going to be out in direct sunlight - ie if he's in the baby carrier, but if he's in the pram i chuck a muslin over because he hates the sun in his eyes

    sorry,i babbled lol
