Are babies more sensitive to the sun?
Yes! Babies can quickly suffer both short and long term damage from sunburn and heat stroke, so protecting them from the sun is crucial.
Sunburn can cause pain, fever, and dehydration. And just one sunburn in childhood increases the risk of melanoma (the deadliest type of skin cancer) as well as wrinkles later in life.
Keep your baby completely out of the sun as much as possible before the age of 6 months. Also avoid sunscreen before this age.
In any case, be particularly vigilant of UV rays when going outside with your baby.
