Tell The Truth: Do You Put Sunscreen On Your Child Every Day?

June 15, 2010 by Mom Jeanine

I love my daughter dearly, but this confession might lead you to think otherwise: I don’t put sunscreen on her every day. Granted, I don’t live in a particularly hot region and we haven’t seen many hot, sunny days this year, but still that’s no excuse. What makes it even worse is that I have sunscreen in my house–some of the best sunscreen for kids, no less.

I just moved and my morning routine is totally crazed at the moment. As a result, I haven’t put sunscreen on her in over a month and I feel horrible. No she hasn’t come home with a bright red burn, but once she gets burned it’s too late. She goes outside for playtime at her school almost every afternoon, so every night I go to bed resolving to rub her down in SPF the next morning. But then the sun rises and I can’t find my shoes or she’s crying because she wants oatmeal instead of waffles and then it’s a mad dash for school…with no sunscreen.

I was recently talking to a mom friend about my dilemma and she said it was really no big deal. Her feeling was if you apply it, great; if you don’t, no biggie. I laughed it off, but in my head thought, “Is she crazy? Has she never heard of melanoma? That is most definitely a big deal.”

What do you think? Do you apply sunscreen on your kids daily or do agree with my friend about it being non-essential?
