I have a 6yr old and a soon to be 5yr old.
I let them go swimming this past Monday in the pool for about 3-4hrs while I was about 15ft away in the shade doing some work on the laptop.
My wife comes home and gives me holy the girls are little lobsters!!! They will be going swimming today (first time since memorial day.) I had put a good coating of this Coppertone kids sunscreen lotion on them about 10mins before they went swimming last monday, but they still got burnt and blistered. It is 70+ spf broad spectrum and its waterproof.
they have since lost their blisters and the skin has peeled and they are back to being pretty close to as white as what they were. All the other years, they got pink, but quickly got tanned. And by the 3rd or 4th week of swimming they didn't use sunscreen at all!
What do I need to do or get, so they don't get lobsterfied again today?
