In brief: Baby sunburn

Use a small child approved moisturizer probably with aloe and nothing to cause allergy or irritate the skin.
No alcohol and no retin-a. Just use the moisturizer and keep the skin clean, all should heal fine...If not see a pediatrician. Be sure not to get anymore sunburns as future damage is being done.

In brief: Cool and moisturize

Topical cooling will relieve pain immediately.
Refrigerated aloe works best. For highly sensitive areas a topical anesthetic can be used under a physicians direction. Oral antinflammatories such as Ibuprofen can provide relief over the first few days. After cooling apply a rich moisturizer such as aquaphor or biafine.

In brief: Don't let it happen

There's not much you can do now.
Form now, on protect your baby from the sun's harmful radiation. Use a sunscreen or shade to, protect him from the sun. If the bay is i pain, tylenol (acetaminophen) can help alleviate it.

In brief: Cool compresses

Baby's skins are very sensitive and burn easily.
Try to prevent sunburns by always using sunscreen and staying in the shade. With a minor burn apply cool compresses, give an oatmeal bath and make sure the baby has plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration. If the burn is blistering or baby has a fever bring to the doctor for evaluation.
