The higher the better in my opinion.

My pediatrician recommended that we not go OVER 50 on my until he was older. The concentration of chemicals is higher in the higher SPFs, and since their skin-to-body ratio is higher than ours, they absorb more of the chemicals. My husband and I use the 50, but still use a mineral sunscreen on our son.

50. Their skin is more prone to burning

I think that 50 is the lowest for use in an infant.

I always use the highest one I can find, nothing under 50.

35. It's proven that anything over 35 gives no greater protection and is a sales pitch. The key is to reapply often and liberally!

It's important to use a high SPF but also be sure to keep them under an umbrella and protected from the sun with a hat and sun glasses!
