Sunscreen Stick

Tis the season for sunscreen!

And for those of you who are cleft affected friends, it's important to remember to put sunscreen on that lip repair scar. You don't want it getting sunburned.

What I have found to be the best remedy in making sure Rachel's scar is covered are these handy dandy sunscreen sticks. I have on in my camera case (cause that's always with me), in my purse, in the backpack, and several other handy places. it's so easy to bring it out and apply to her lip as well as the rest of her face several times throughout the day when we're out in the sun. They can be pricey ($3.97 at Walmart), but they are defiantly worth having!

Mine is always in the baby's bag... thanks for the suggestion months ago. I know it has helped. :) Enjoy your summer, as I know you are already.

I remember you telling us that at the hospital! I will definitely be purchasing several when Gavin is out in the sun! Cute picture of Rachel!

That's a great tip!

I have one of those in our geocaching bag, and when we were camping at John Day in May, I forgot our regular sunscreen back at the campsite. I dug out the stick and applied that to the kids' and my face, neck and arms...LOL, it took about 15 minutes to rub that little stick all over!
