Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. More than one million skin cancers are diagnosed annually. Protect your child by practicing sun safety. Apply sunscreen regularly and teach your baby to wear sunglasses and a sunhat while outdoors.
Children’s eyes are especially vulnerable to damage from UV rays, but it’s hard to keep those little eyes protected. If you have a young baby or even a toddler who just won’t keep glasses on, try a pair with a strap.
