Special Considerations for Children

Recent medical research shows that it is important to protect children and young adults from overexposure to UV radiation.

For babies under 6 months, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends avoiding sun exposure, and dressing infants in lightweight long pants, long-sleeved shirts, and brimmed hats.

Parents can also apply sunscreen (SPF 30+) to small areas like the face and back of the hands if protective clothing and shade are not available.
