Babies are particularly at risk to the damaging effects of the sun. Up to 6 months, the recommendation is to keep them out of the sun completely. This is because their skin has little melanin which provides some natural protection. If you do need to go outside when it's hot, aim for before 10am or after 4pm, using a buggy with a sun protection cover. Babies should always wear light clothing that covers their legs and arms along with a hat to protect their face and neck. Sunscreen can be used on babies from 6 to 12 months and should be applied to all uncovered areas. It must be applied 30 minutes before going outside and reapplied every two hours or straight after swimming.
