Stores sell two types of sunscreen for babies- lotion or a spray.
1) A spray seems to be the easier version of the two.... but wondering which works better, and...
2) if there are any brands you've found to work better than others.

TIA

I find spray works better on my kids. try to get waterproof better than water resistant. also get them a high spf +25 if you can get spf 60 it is excellent.

This year I bought the continuous spray and I really like it - especially the clear one. (I think it is coppertone) It is much better than the regular spray.
With any spray, don't spray it directly on to the face - put it on your hands and apply.

at first I bought the lotion, but its so messy, and would spill everywhere, and I always had extra left in my palm that would be wasted. and I ended up losing the bottle. then I bought the spray and this is my third summer using it, works great I like it b/c it sprays exactly enough lotion for one arm. and I never waste any.

(and I keep it in my bathroom cabinet so I dont lose it Very Happy )

Yael- what do you do about the face????
do you spray or onto your hands, and wipe on?

be careful not to get it in their eyes or it really stings and then they won't let you put it on again

I remember years ago seing a sunscreen spray that was clear and very thin (like water), you just shpritz and thats it. Now I am seeing this thick gooky spray that you still have to shmear after you spray - which ones are you people using?

mumsy, get the ones called continous spray - coppertone makes a clear one.
