    Default sun protection for my 19 month old

    hi. My daughter is 19 months old. Now its coming into summer we are going to the beach a lot. I lather her in sun screen but am worried if shes in the sun for too long then she will be burnt or dehydrated. Shes always got a water bottle but is there some sort of guideline as to how long a child should be exposed to the sun?

    I don't know any guidelines, but if you follow guidelines for adults you'll be close. Try the Cancer Council of Australia.

    We always have bought long sleeve rashy tops for DD, as they have a SPF factor of 50. Other options are to find some light cotton shirts & pants so that you have the option of covering her up while not getting her overheated. And a hat is a must.

    Have fun.
