Dermatologists and paediatricians are clear: children under the age of 3 years should never be directly exposed to the sun. The skin of babies is much more sensitive to the sun and UVA and UVB rays than that of adults. In particular, babies need very high protection that is gentle on their delicate skin.
Protect your children from the sun.
Direct sun exposure is broadly discouraged by paediatricians and dermatologists; that said, it is just as important to protect your children in the event of indirect sun exposure.
50 to 80% of UV-related damage occurs during childhood and adolescence*.
It is therefore essential to teach children, including young children, good practices in terms of sun protection.
