Sun Safety with Aveeno Baby (+ $5 off!)

This is a sponsored post, but all opinions are my own. 

This winter lasted wayyy too long and this household is finally ready for warm weather! Spring and summer are by far my favorite times of the year, but I definitely have concerns when it comes to sun safety. I used to be able to lay out without sunscreen and never burn, but now that I’m getting a little older, I want to take care of my skin. Since having kids, it’s even more important now that I avoid the harsh rays, and keep their skin young and baby fresh as long as possible. In Virginia, the sun shines all year round, and gets super intense April through September!

A few years ago, I learned the hard way that not all sunscreens are created equally. Some brands that were expensive and supposedly safe for babies, ended up giving Blaire minor chemical burns and irritation. This was especially true on sensitive areas like her face and the sun exposure just accelerated it. Now, I’m super picky about what I put on their skin not just to keep them from burning, but something that doesn’t sting and is gentle enough for every day.

Blaire is normally a girl that tans with no problems, but Brooklyn is blue-eyed, blonde-haired and very fair complected. I feel like she could burn the second I take her outside. What they do with their skin when they’re older will be up to them, but while they are on my watch, I want to keep their precious skin as healthy and baby like as I can. With AVEENO®  Baby CONTINUOUS PROTECTION Sunscreen Lotion with Broad Spectrum SPF 50 natural solutions I know I’m getting 100% zinc oxide UVA and UVB mineral protection, and it’s hypoallergenic. I never have to worry about dyes or fragrances, and it keeps their skin moisturized and nourished.

This sunscreen is for sure one thing I always have on hand all summer long. I always go Walmart to purchase AVEENO®  Baby CONTINUOUS PROTECTION Sunscreen Lotion with Broad Spectrum SPF 50 because they have valuable twin packs. I like keep one in my car, and one at home at all times just to make sure it’s always within reach. Right now through the Ibotta offer, you can get an additional $5 off. The sunscreen is safe for babies 6 months and older, otherwise, talk to your pediatrician before using it.

If you’ve used this product before or have any questions let me know! I’d love to hear your comments as always 🙂

    Ahhh I can’t believe how much Cookie has grown since these photos! I love those beautiful blue eyes! It sounds like Aveeno baby is definitely the way to go. I may just have to get it for myself considering how easily I burn hahah!

  2. I think I need to check out this Aveeno baby for my girl. It’s so crazy how different and quickly they can burn! Especially on the sensitive areas. Brooklyn’s blues eyes are so gorgeous.

    Aveeno seriously has the BEST products! I actually use baby sunscreen on my tattoos so I’ll definitely be picking this one up on my next trip to Target!

    Wow that’s crazy with how some lotions can burn quickly and I don’t blame you for being picky. Your little one is sooo adorable and gorgeous blue eyes❤️

      Thank you!! Ya it was like a weird reaction chemical burn because of some harsh things they put in sunscreens. Definitely gotta read the labels!

  6. June 18, 2018 / 10:50 pm

    Ahhh this is good to know! Baby skin is so much different than ours

    • June 18, 2018 / 11:37 pm

      Right? Gotta have sunscreen! Aveeno stuff always smells the best too

    I am very picky about my kids sunscreen for that exact reason too. Definitely need to pick this one up for the kiddos, we love Aveeno products and how gentle but effective they are!

    cute & little

      Right?! I hope no one else has experience chemical burns but it totally happens. That’s why we love this one!

    Aveeno products are the best! It can be so hard to find a good sunscreen especially when you have kids! -Tonya

      Yes! And finding good products for them is so important to me! 🙂

    Sunscreen is important for all ages, but especially, I would imagine (I don’t have kids) for baby skin!

  10. June 19, 2018 / 11:21 am

    Aveeno really has amazing sunscreen! I love using it on myself as well as my kiddos. I always try to use sunscreen that is good for babies sensitive skin!

    • June 19, 2018 / 6:03 pm

      I totally agree!! Not gonna lie I use the same one! lol

  11. June 19, 2018 / 11:23 am

    I’m a new mom and have only heard good things about Aveeno- sounds like they’re the brand to go with!

    • June 19, 2018 / 6:02 pm

      Totally! We have used other brands and have had bad chemical reactions… crazy!

  12. June 19, 2018 / 11:31 am

    I’m all about the sun safety! Especially for the little ones

    • June 19, 2018 / 6:02 pm

      Me too! I wish I would have know when I was a little younger to be more careful!

  14. June 19, 2018 / 12:34 pm

    I had no idea Aveeno made sunscreens, but I swear by their eczema lotions – the only thing that helps my dry skin in the winter! I’ll definitely need to check these out.

    I heard a lot of great feedback about Aveeno. Looks like they have great products! I would try to try this to my little one!

    • June 19, 2018 / 6:01 pm

      Thanks Helen! Definitely recommend it, we have had some terrible experiences with other brands! Hope you’re doing well! Xx

    Thank you for the recommendation! I’m having my first baby anyday now 😘

    It is quite weird how we immediately think a higher price opts for better quality, when it’s often not the case at all as you’ve just told us about here. I remember being a VERY fair and blonde, not to say white haired young boy and my mother used to try all methods possible not to make me burn in the sun. Wish this would have been around when I was a kid!

    Well if this isn’t the cutest post I don’t know what is! Aside from using sunscreen on myself everyday I can imagine how important it is to find a formula that is gentle and safe for little ones!
