Sun Safety: How to Protect your Child from the Greatest Cause of Skin Cancer
According to The Skin Cancer Foundation, infants aged 6 months and under should be kept out of direct sunlight. This is because they have low levels of melanin in their skin – the substance that gives pigment to the skin, hair and eyes and protects against the sun – meaning they are very sensitive to UV radiation.
As such, the Skin Cancer Foundation recommend that parents take their infant for walks in a stroller with a sun-protective cover before 10 am and after 4 pm – when UV radiation is lowest.
Infants should be dressed in lightweight clothing that covers the arms and legs, and their face neck and ears should be protected with a wide-brimmed hat or bonnet. When an infant is traveling in a vehicle, it is wise to cover the windows with removable mesh window shields or UV window film to reduce sun exposure.
