My baby is now 3 months old... Is it ok for him to wear sunblock and if so can you recommend the best ones for infants?

In brief: Be careful

Newborn and infant skin is very sensitive and sun exposure should.
You can ask you pharmacist or just look for sunblock that is indicated for new skin.

In brief: Stay in the shade!

A 3 month old baby is still very young, and will get sunburned quite easily.
Keeping the baby in the shade is the safest thing to do. If using sunblock, the zinc oxide and titanium oxide ingredients are physical sunblocks (not chemical sunblocks), and stay on the surface of the skin, usually without any skin reactions. Also, a 3 month old can still catch colds, flus, and other illnesses easily.
