Now that the weather is warmer and summer is closing in, I have a new challenge as a first time mom: how do you safely play outside with a baby?
First, I didn’t know where to “place” her when outside. I had this picnic/beach blanket I purchased at Kohl’s last year that has a waterproof side and a soft fleece side. She will mostly stick around on here if I sit on it with her and give her lots of toys to play with. But you know toys are never as interesting as the leaves and other things surrounding the blanket!
Second, I wasn’t sure how to protect her from the sun when our backyard has virtually no shade. We ended up setting up our deck umbrella to create a little shady space and I bought her this cute eyelet hat. I know there’s only a matter of time before she tears that thing off so I needed a new solution. As a first time mom, I found very little information on sunscreens that were affective and safe for babies who constantly touch their face/arms/hands all day long.
Luckily when I reached out to the team at Neutrogena, they helped me out and introduced me to their Pure and Free line of sunscreen! It contains a blend of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, which are naturally sourced sunscreen ingredients, known to be gentle on sensitive skin. It feels thicker than the kind we always applied on ourselves and needed a little more work to blend in and not be so white. I had no issues with that, as I could then tell what areas I missed and where I had it applied! The best part about it is that it is a hypoallergenic tear-free formula so it’s safe for babies who rub their face a lot.
I’m happy to say that we’ve been enjoying lots of nice days with our Neutrogena Pure and Free Baby Sunscreen applied and look forward to MANY more this summer!
I’m even happier to say that the great folks at Neutrogena have offered to help out a fellow Spot of Tea Designs parent and provide one winner with two bottles of their Pure and Free sunscreen!

I LOVE to swim!
Wearing flip flops, brunch outside, feeling the sun on your skin – anything really that gets me as far away from winter as possible!
