    Default What sunscreen for baby/toddler?

    I'm using the Banana Boat Baby sunscreen but finding it really dries out 14 month old DS's skin. His poor little cheeks are almost cracking. What do you use and recommend for bubs? Is there a sunscreen with moisturiser that's gentle enough for little ones?

    I use milk baby on my boys. It's very gentle and I've had no trouble with it

    Sorry, no suggestions, just thought I'd add that if you look at sunscreens from the major brands... there's generally no difference between adult ones and baby/kids ones, it's all marketing. So I wouldn't rule anything out on the basis that it's aimed at adults.

    I've used the banana boat one and had no problems - it may be one of those things where everyone's different.

    Choice says baby sunscreen is a scam it's the same sunscreen but more expensive. I'd try an adult sensitive one.
