How can I protect my child's face and neck from sunburn?

Protect Baby's Head

As doctors recommend you not use harsh sunscreen on babies' faces, it is best that you dress baby in sun protective clothing. The most susceptible part of the head to burn is the head and face. Sun hats are highly recommended for babies and children. A bucket-style hat is optimum, covering the face and back of the neck as well as the head. As an alternative to a bucket hat, try one with a regular baseball cap bill and a long flap in the back to cover the neck. Babies are very sensitive to sunburn and while swimming, it is even worse, as the sun reflects off the water. Even with a sun hat on, don't allow baby to get too much sun exposure while swimming.
