My father in law keeps telling me I shouldn't be putting sunscreen on my pa child because it may have peanut oil in it and may cause a reaction, is this true, and does anyone know what type of sunscreen has the peanut oil in it? My son is very very fair and must have sunscreen, I have been putting it on him all the time and so far there hasn't been any problems.

Check out this thread concerning peanut/nut free sunscreens:
L'Oreal's Ombrelle for kids (in Canada) soecifically states that it is pn/tn free on the label.
I believe it is available in the states too.

My DD gets rashes easy from sunscreen, too, and downright had hives and swelling from Banana Boat.
We have so far had good success with the Baby Blanket SPF 50.

I have heard that Vanicream is very gentle. If you do a search for Vanicream or sunscreen you will find a website for ordering it. Or use I haven't tried it yet but am thinking about it. I just tried kids No-Ad in turquoise spray bottle. Have only used it twice so far so don't feel comfortable giving it a stamp of approval yet. However, so far so good.

My DD has sensitive skin, ezcema & PA - we use Nutrigena Sensitive Skin SPF 30 or 45. They sell it at Walmart and the local drugstores.
Good Luck!

We use Vanicream and love it. It is a zinc base so I rub some in 20 minutes before going out and then put a thick layer on at the time we hit the beach or the park. Works really well and doesn't go in the eyes as mush as other sun screens. You can phone order or buy at a Target but sometimes they must order it for you.
Do a search as you will find this link.

We've used Neutrogena Sensitive Skin sunscreen in the past without problems, but this year it causes horrible eczema flare ups.
Has anyone had any problems with the Baby Blanket or the Vanicream that has been suggested here? We are getting ready for vacation and need to find something that works for DS.

We've been using the Baby Blanket since the beginning of summer here. Been working great. We're using the spray on kind. My DD thinks it 'tickles' and has not reacted.
She is the one who reacted severely to Banana Boat Baby Boat two years ago (hives, facial swelling)... nasty.
Good luck!
