Family Fun in the Summer Sun #AveenoSunCare

Summer is now in full swing here in Southern Ontario.  Thank goodness, too - it was a long time coming!  This summer our family is so excited to spend as much time as possible with my sister Kelly and her family.  They just moved back to Ontario over the winter and moved into a home in the suburbs with a POOL!  Summer doesn't get much better (for children) than this.  The cousins get to spend lots of time together, and aunts & uncles get to sit on the deck and watch the kids play in and around the pool, for hours.

 It is truly a glorious summer of fun for all of us.

While it is important to get some sun and soak up vitamin D, it is also vital to make sure that delicate young skin is protected, while we are out on the pool deck. 

Important Sun Protection Reminders

  • Remember that the sun is strongest between the hours of 10am and 4pm.  Try to limit time in the sun during those hours, or have shade available.  There are great sunshade (easy to assemble structures) which are portable, such as umbrellas, or pop up tents.  
  • Use cover up clothing to shield skin from the sun's harmful rays.   Hats are a must for everyone in the family - not just babies and children. 
  • Protect eyes from the glare of the sun.  Most kids love a funky pair of sunglasses.  
  • Apply a pediatrician recommended sunscreen.  Make sure to reapply often throughout the day.  We recommend Aveeno Baby Sunscreen Lotion  as a must-have in your beach and diaper bags this summer.  

Aveeno Baby Sunscreen Lotion offers the ultimate protection, yet is so gentile on sensitive baby and toddler skin.   Offering a SPF of 55, Aveeno Baby Sunscreen is fragrance free, waterproof and protects wee ones from the harmful effects of UVA and UVB rays.

 Why do we love Aveeno Baby Sunscreen Lotion?

Little Landon loves to play outdoors and is sometimes difficult to convince to take a moment to slow down and apply sunscreen.  Aveeno Baby Sunscreen is perfect for Landon and his fair skin.  We love that it absorbs quickly and leaves his skin feeling soft and smooth.  Aveeno Baby Sunscreen is scent free and does a great job of protecting Landon's skin.  

Aveeno Baby Sunscreen is recommended by the Canadian Dermatological Society
 and Pediatricians.   

We are fans and believers of Aveeno products for baby, children and adults.  It is a trusted name in skin care and is always top quality.  Aveeno Baby Sunscreen Lotion is now, another favourite (Aveeno) product which we love, enjoy using and rely upon!

I really like Aveeno products. LO had extremely sensitive skin as a baby (still does). Aveeno was great for her. I haven't tried the sunscreen yet. I'll have to check it out.

I love Aveeno, the oatmeal bath is one of my favorites (and really helps with my chronic hives).

Sun safety is so important! It is easy to forget how critical protecting your skin EVERY day.

We are huge proponents of sunscreen in this house! Especially for kids ... your chances of experiencing skin cancer significantly increase if you have sun burns as a kid :(

I haven;t used this much but will look for it. Actually I like the sound of how gentle it is. I use grown up Aveeno products quite a lot actually, but haven't ever really taken a hard look at this one. It's important to protect young skin.
