: I'm going to take DS swimming this afternoon. I have Water Babies spf 45 to put on him and a hat but should I put a shirt on him too, when he's in the pool. My husband looked at me like I was crazy when I mentioned to him. Does he need a shirt or will the sunblock be enough?

It depends on how fair his skin is. He looks to be pretty fair skinned in his pics. But I can't really tell just from pictures.

I would suggest putting at least a tank top on him along with the SPF. Nothing more then that though, I think he will be fine. At least with the tank, he is not bulgged down with the weight of a t-shirt and it will be covering most of his vulnerable areas.

Good luck and have fun!
