How to Protect Your Kids from the Sun

Summer is in full swing now and I’ve been relatively good about suncreen. The kids are off to camps with their very own spray bottles tucked in their backpacks. We are spending tons of time outdoors and in the water at the pool and late and my little guy has still turned dramatically browner. I wonder if I’m applying enough or using the right SPF. So I consulted the Expert Mommy!

  2. Had a great weekend with my daughter’s first fishing excursion on Saturday. 103 out on the lake with copious sun screen applied beforehand. I am infamous for being Lobsterboy the next day and today? Nothing.

    Yay for sunscreen! Thanks for an informative video and I will be checking back.

    Cheers!
