It is officially summer!  Yay!

I’m sure you’ve read a bazillion articles about sunscreen and how they are terrible for you and your precious babies.  Let me be honest…spraying sunscreen on my 7-year-old son is way easier than lathering him up every day before he hits the pool, but…that stuff is terrible.  Don’t believe me? Check out the Environmental Working Group’s website.  I love this site because it rates a ton of brands of products on a scale of 1 – 10, one being the best for you and 10 being the absolute worst, cancer-causing, you’re going to die soon, run away very quickly.

While I love this website, as a mom it is pretty much impossible to protect our babies (no matter how big or small) from all the chemicals and carcinogens in products currently being produced.  So, I recommend you make the best choice you are able and rest in the fact that you are doing a great job protecting your babies.  I mean, it’s not like you let them swim at the pool without you.

1. Badger Balm – Their sunscreens rate a 1 on the EWG’s website. But I love it because my kids love it.  While other sunscreens sting their faces once they hit the water or rub their eyes, these do not.  Prices range from $10-$15 for a 2.9 fl.oz tube.

2. Raw Elements – Their sunscreens also rate a 1 on the EWG’s website.  They’ll run you about $18 for a 3.0 fl/oz tube.

3. Coola – They have spray sunscreens, which I have not tried and they don’t look like they have been rated by EWG yet.  But I have tried their SPF 50 Mango Sport Sunscreen if you love the smells of vacation and the beach you’ll love this product!  EWG has rated 3 of their products between a 1-2.
