How To Know Which Toddler Sunscreen To Buy

What Kind Of Sunscreen Lotion Is Best For Toddlers?

I recommend choosing a "physical" or "chemical-free" sunscreen made with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide look for one of those ingredients on the label. Unlike chemical sunscreens, which may cause irritation or allergic reactions because the skin absorbs the active ingredients, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide sit on top of the skin, forming a barrier against the sun's rays.

Also, sun blocks with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide start protecting as soon as you put them on. Any sunscreen that contains the physical blocker zinc oxide or titanium dioxide will protect against both UVA and UVB rays. This information I researched and learned from dermatologists and pediatricians.

What Should The Sun Protection Factor (SPF) Be?

The sun protection factor (SPF) should be at least 15, but you generally don't need to go above 30: Higher than that and you're getting smaller and smaller amounts of added protection which, in a chemical sunscreen, means a higher dose of unwanted chemicals. It is ok to use a "childrens" sunscreen, but don't go out of your way to buy one of these since they're usually no different from the adult versions.

** Important Tip ** BUY Sunscreen each year! Yes they will expire and will not be as effective.

How To Put Sunscreen On Your Toddler:

  1. Lay it on thick, making sure every part of his body gets a good covering.
  2. Pay special attention to burn-prone areas like the ears, nose, back of the neck, and shoulders.
  3. Reapply sunscreen often. Waterproof sunscreens may be slightly hardier than other products, but don't trust a label that promises to protect for eight hours.
  4. Your toddler will need more sunscreen every two hours or every time they get wet or is dried off with a towel.

The Secrets of How to Buy the best Toddler Swimwear:)


Remember you want your child to be comfortable. Pick out suits that fit them well. I know you want them to be cute, but you do want them to not worry about fit either.

How Is The Suit Made?

  • Where are the straps located?
  • Is it an elastic waist or drawstring?
  • Are the trunks too long or short?
  • Are there pockets? Do they need pockets?
  • What material is the suit made out of?


It is possible to find exactly what you want at a price you can afford. It is truly not that difficult.


Again, keep extra suits. Buy at least 5 or 6 for a season. You will get use out of all of them. Trust me!
