Warm, sunny days are wonderful. It's great to be outside. The sun feels good on your skin, especially after a long, drawn-out winter.
But what feels good can also harm you and your smallest family members.
A baby's skin is more delicate and thinner than an adult's and burns and irritates more easily. Even dark-skinned babies may get sunburned.
And remember, babies cannot tell you if they are too hot or beginning to burn and obviously can't get out of the sun without an adult's help.
Babies also need an adult to dress them properly and to apply sunscreen.
It's good for children and adults to spend time playing and exercising outdoors, and it's important to do so safely.
In this segment, Dr. Cori Cross shares some simple rules to protect your little ones from sunburns.
