August is nearly upon us, but there’s still plenty of summer sun and warm-weather traveling left to enjoy! If you’re planning on a few more seaside travels – or anywhere that has you out and in the sun this summer – you’ll want to make sure the first thing you pack is a quality sunscreen. We always recommend checking the EWG’s guide to sunscreens when it comes to summer skin safety for you mom, but we know you’re just as concerned about keeping baby’s skin protected as well (if not more so)! Our friends over at New York Family have done the thinking for you and put together 10 of the best sunscreen products for baby and child this summer. Check them out below!
