Well, I finally got the kids out on a nice walk and to the park today. My 3YO DD was in the stroller and my 11WO DD was in the Baby Bjorn on me. I thought everyone was properly dressed for the overcast day, forgetting that my balding baby obviously needed a hat. Well, a few hours later I noticed her head looked red and realized she is sunburnt. I could have puked (and still could) out of guilt, sadness and anger at myself. How could I let this happen? She’s very fair-skinned. I should have known better. I called the pediatrician. They said I only need to bring her in if there’s a fever or blisters, which there is not (thank goodness).
Anyone else have an experience of doing or not doing something and unintentionally hurting your babe? Worst feeling in the world.
