    I like California Baby (stick and lotion). It's also rated one of the safest. I also have some Mustela 50+ spf but prefer the CB.

    I use California Baby Stick and lotion as well, and really like it. Joshua has very sensitive skin, and this seems to work great. I read reviews on it as well that rated it one of the safest. Also Arbonne makes a baby sunblock that is suppose to be really good.

    I use waterbabies...just don't buy generic. My MIL got that for my DS when he was 10 mos. old, and he broke out in a rash.

    I couldn't find California Baby when I went to babies r us so I bought the Nutragena (sp?) stick. My DD's pedi said to try to get one that didn't have a lot of strong scents. He said even those for babies are often irritating for them. HTH!

    We love the CB lotion. It's pricey but well worth it if your LO has sensitive skin. I also use it on my face because my skin is super sensitive, also.

    Using one with zinc or titanium as the main ingredient is the safest choice. California Baby as well as UV Natural are good ones.

    Just be sure to use the stick around the eyes. (I just saw this on the news today. It hadn't occured to me, I guess!)
