The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has just released their 2011 Safe Sunscreen Guide and it's jam-packed with the safest sunscreens for your baby (and you). This is the 5th year that the EWG has released a safe sunscreen guide, and this year's list is the biggest yet, featuring the ratings for more than 1,700 sunscreens and SPF-containing lip balms, moisturizers and makeups. Of course, you already know how important sun safety is for your baby and you, but just in case, let's have a small recap of sun-safe tips.

  • Sunscreen is important year-round, not just during the summer. Make sure to slather on the sunscreen in winter, fall and spring as well.
  • Sunscreen is good, but it can't do everything. Your baby also needs sun protection clothing and even baby sunglasses.
  • Make sure you're applying sunscreen correctly.
  • Stay out of the sun when it's just too bright — aim for shade.
