Health Tip: Protect Newborns From the Sun

Health Tip: Protect Newborns From the Sun

06/15/11

(HealthDay News) -- A newborn's sensitive skin is particularly vulnerable to sunburn, so parents should be extra cautious.

The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these suggestions to prevent sunburn in babies less than six months:

  • Avoid sun exposure as much as possible.
  • Dress baby in a lightweight, long-sleeved top and long pants.
  • Put baby in a wide-brimmed hat to shield the face.
  • If you can't keep baby out of the sun, apply a small bit of sunscreen to the face and the backs of baby's hands.
