So I spent the week on vacation at the beach. I did really well all week with my sunscreen and not being out too long. Well, today was our last day and I bought a new baby book yesterday and just sat on the beach reading. I was out about 2 hours and drank numerous bottles of water so dehydration isn't an issue. I sat right by the ocean so there was a constant breeze so I didn't get overheated. I just showered and really noticed the redness. I'm not burnt but really red, even my belly. I don't THINK it affects the baby but was just wondering what you all thought.
i think the main thing about sunburn that could hurt the baby is dehydration so as long as you are drinking a lot of fluid you dont have to worry about that. ive also heard that if you burn your belly it can make the baby to hot and to put some cool wash clothes on it and lotion to pull the heat out but as long as its not severe it should be ok.
You should be alright, if you are interested, find a pure vitamin E oil, sometimes found in the vitamins section of the store and rub that into the red areas. The vitamin E oil promotes healing and provides the burned area with the nutrition so it can start the healing process right away.
