Did you hear about the man whose sunblock caught on fire?
Scary! That horrible accident reminded me it’s time for my annual sunscreen recommendation.

Summer is here! Since it’s beach time again, remember to use a chemical free, mineral based sunblock for your precious baby’s skin. Here is my favorite: Badger Sunscreen SPF 30
It’s also mosquito central in these parts, so here is the best natural bug repellent I can find: Burt’s Bees Herbal Insect Repellent 4 fl oz spray
If you have a sunscreen or bug spray you already use but want to check the integrity of the ingredients, go to the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Database and search for your products to find out if they’re safe to use on your baby.
Most importantly, have fun in the sun!
