It's baby boys first summer!  Last summer he was just making his debut to the world so this summer we're excited to play in the sun.  This means extra protection for both baby and mama.

We recently visited my parents in Las Vegas.  Caspian had his first swim lesson and it was HOT out.  We took a lot of time to slather on Aveeno® Baby Continuous Protection® Sensitive Skin Zinc Oxide Sunscreen SPF 50 since he manages to rip off every hat we try to put on him and rash guard!

 I love that Aveeno is recommended by pediatricians and dermatologists.  Aveeno® Baby Continuous Protection® Sensitive Skin Zinc Oxide Sunscreen SPF 50 contains natural oats which will keep Caspians skin from getting dry and is free of all parabens, phthalates, dyes, fragrances & chemical sunscreen ingredients.  It provides 80 minuter water resistant protection, which was perfect for his 45 min swim lessons.

Getting sunscreen on the little one can be difficult since they are such wiggly worms.  We love using the "dot" method.

I apply dots on his nose, cheeks, forehead and ears!  Seriously, don't forget those cute little ears. I find it's easiest to "massage" the sunscreen in.  He seems to find it more soothing than trying to wipe it on. Don't worry if a lil rubs off or gets in their eye, Aveeno® Baby Continuous Protection® Sensitive Skin Zinc Oxide Sunscreen SPF 50 is tear free!

Keeping my skin protected is more important than ever now that I am getting older and have a little one around.  I want to enjoy the summer without worrying about harmful effects of the sun BUT I still like to look good while I do it!  Plus AVEENO® PROTECT + HYDRATE® Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 50 for Face is formulated with skin-soothing ACTIVE NATURALS® Colloidal Oatmeal, which hydrates skin to keep it soft, smooth and feeling healthier than before sun exposure.  I have oily skin so the oil-free formula helps me battle my t-zone while the sweat-resistant formula makes sure my UV protection doesn't wear off. 

I love a subtle bronze shimmer for summer so I put together an easy tutorial where you can use your makeup and incorporate AVEENO® PROTECT + HYDRATE® Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 50 for Face.

- add a dollop of Aveeno sunscreen (about a nickel sized amount)

- add a bit of oil-free concealer of your choice (the concealer will supply more coverage for uneven skin)

- add a touch of liquid bronze highlighter 

- mix them together in your palm and apply to face

One of Caspian favorite things is bubbles but a lot of them are full of toxic chemicals.  Since we don't like the icky stuff in our sunscreen we choose Aveeno® Baby Continuous Protection® Sensitive Skin Zinc Oxide Sunscreen SPF 50 so it only makes sense to use bubbles safe for babies.  Below is a super easy DIY recipe for toxic free bubbles that will provide your little one tons of fun this summer.

You'll need:

- 1 cup of warm water
- 1/2 cup liquid Castile soap
- 1 teaspoon vegetable glycerin
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- optional, 10 drops of essential oil like lavender or lemon

Mix the ingredients together and pour into a container like a glass mason jar.  If the mixture separates just give it a little stir again with your bubble wand.  You can purchase bubble wands online.
