|putting a little on his ear...|
Here are a few of our tricks for getting sun screen on our Little One as painlessly as possible:
1) Let him help rub it in. Or put some on his finger and let him decide where to put it. Arm? foot? YOUR arm? It's always fun to put some on Mommy...
2) Let him hold the face stick, or even put some on, while we apply lotion on his body. Its a good opportunity to learn body parts, too: "Can you put some on your nose? ...how about your cheek? ...forehead?" Sure, some ends up in his hair, but we use that for a learning opportunity, and giggle at our 'mistake'!
4) Do it every day. Toddlers thrive on routines, so building this in every day helps TONS! You will both figure out what works best (a special toy, or drinking milk, etc.), and expect it at the same time. And then do it again after lunch!
