We use CA Baby as well. I have the kind with Citronella. I also have Equate baby sunblock that I use on my face & shoulders, the only places I burn. We have tried the spray sprayed onto my hands then rubbed on the face. My daughter was fine but it lit up my face & my son's. Won't be trying that again!

There is a point in spf where it is all the same after. I want to say it is 35. After 35 it is the same protection, just extra chemicals. A pediatric derm is the one who told me this.

I think it's all the same after 50 SPF (but I might be mistaken, too)

I used to always use Banana Boat Baby, but now that my youngest is 2 we have switched to Banana Boat Kids. It is tear free and string free, fragrance free, and very water resisitant. It has a SPF of 50+. My oldest is 7 1/2 and none of my four has ever had a sunburn.

We use Aveeno spray on - it's the only thing my son doesn't break out using!

Re: What sunscreen/block do you use?

I use Blue Lizard sensitive skin. Sometimes I'll use Badger as well.

ETA: I buy Blue Lizard from drugstore.com. Though I did find it in CVS once. I haven't looked in a while.

I found ours last year off this list and tossed all the ones that could cause cancer. Wasnt worth the risk to me.

We use Badger. DS wears trunks, SPF rashguard, and SPF hat, too.

I also used the EWG.org website to pick ours.
