My 6 month old is finally old enough for sunscreen
. I'm wondering what everyone's favourite physical baby sunscreen is? (Physical is zinc and titanium dioxide). I have a banana boat sunscreen that I'm not very fond of. I tried it on myself and find it doesn't go on smoothly. Can't imagine trying to rub that all over my baby.

Aveeno baby is a good one

We've all been using the Neutrogena Beach Defense Kids Sunscreen in our house. I used it on my baby when he was 6 month without any problems. We spend a lot of time at the wading pool and its nice to have a waterproof sunscreen that's SPF 65. Plus its $15.00 some of the products geared to kids can be expensive.

I know Aveeno contains chemical sunscreen and I don't think that's safe at this time. Neutrogena I'm not sure about since I can't find an ingredient list anywhere. I'm assuming it's not a physical sunscreen since it has helioplex in it to provide stability. That's only a concern with chemical sunscreens.
Thanks though for your input as to what you use. Anyone else know a good and easy to apply physical sunscreen?

I've used only Aveeno and have not a bad word to say about it.
