A 29-year-old member asked:

My baby starts crying in bright lights or sunlight, is this normal?

Dr. Scott Katz
Pediatrics 26 years experience
Yes: Almost all babies are very sensitive to bright light in the first weeks of life. They will prefer to open their eyes more in a dimly lit room. This does not indicate that their is anything wrong with your child. By 6-8 weeks of age, your baby should be more alert, awake and interactive, even in well lit areas.

Dr. Michael Thompson
Hematology and Oncology 20 years experience
Yes: Melanoma can occur in sun exposed areas. However, it can (and does) occur in areas where "the sun doesn't shine". Additionally, melanoma may be amelanotic (non-black) and difficult to diagnose visually until more advanced.

They do: I've been practicing medicine in the midwest for 23 years. Between october and march, we may get 2-3 minutes worth of sun in 6 months. Vitamind deficiency is scarily common here, so anything that can safely provide light therapy without increasing skin damage i strongly recommend.Sorry, i might have exaggerated a bit on the midwest sunlight thing. We get 10 minutes...
