    The link you posted doesn't go to the website. Was there an error or is it just my computer?

    My uncle, who is a GP (not that that means anything, ) said that one of the main reasons we're advised not to use sunscreen on babies under 6 mos is that there isn't any testing on children this young, so it's basically just to cover the manufacturer's butt. May or may not be true, but we used a PABA-free sensitive-skin lotion (like for your face) on DD last summer, and she showed no reaction whatsoever. Like pp said, test a small area for reactions, then do what your gut tells you.
