I think baby sunscreens are for 6 months onwards but not 100% sure.
no you can't put sunscreen on a 2 week old, and you shouldn't have to because they shouldn't be in the sun.
No way. No shade at the beach - go to the movies instead and sit in aircon
No. My baby is 3 weeks old and I live 5 minutes from the beach. I had plans to go today with a friend, but after hearing the forecast, I cancelled.
They are still there, got there half hour ago.
Depends on the beach...and the breeze and the availability of shade etc
Sometimes, sitting under a big tree at the beach with a nice breeze is lovely.
Unless the parents have given you a reason to question their judgement...then I would be happy. People do lots of things I would not nd I am sure i do things that others would not...but, if they are normally good parents...then I would give them the benefit of the doubt and assume they have the same level of intelligence as you do!
I did take DS to the beach from 6 months, but definitely not in the middle of the day in this weather - we always go early 9.30-10 ish and leave around 11.30 and that's with a beach tent and all kids have long sleeve rash shirts and hats on !
We are not even going in our pool until later this afternoon cause it's too
Hot in the sun!
Yes I do and have done so in the past. We live 500m from a beach that is very cool and shady. My son was in a baby bjorn with a hat on and a muslin over him or the pram and well sheltered from the sun. He had a 3 hour sleep in his pram to the sounds of the water lapping against the sand. We had one of our best mornings at the beach when he was around that age.
Totally depends on the beach, how many adults are there and a whole lot of other things. I've just come back from the beach now and there were quite a few small babies enjoying the sea breeze.
