As part of a sponsored post on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Banana Boat, I’m going to talk about summertime, sunburns, and how to protect your entire family with Banana Boat. I received product samples and promotional item as a thank you for participating.
This summer was the first summer that my boy was in camp rather than just daycare. During the first week of camp, we were still learning the ropes when they told us that swim day was coming. We were told to dress them in swimsuits and bring a towel. I knew that my boy would need sunscreen, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. So, that morning I told him that he HAD to swim in a shirt because we didn’t have the sunscreen. That afternoon, I picked him up and he was burned so badly that he was in tears! They didn’t let him wear a shirt and didn’t put on sunscreen. I was livid!
That night we went to the store and bought some Banana Boat sunscreen.
Of course, later in the summer Banana Boat sent me the samples that you see above and we were over the moon happy about it. By now, my boy is tanned and golden and while he still uses the sunscreen every day, he doesn’t burn quite as easily.
Banana Boat can protect everyone in your family
For years, my entire extended family would go to Galveston beach for a summer vacation until Hurricane Ike came along and took away our summer vacation spot. The last year that we visited, my boy was only 6 months old. Now, my sister has a 3 week old baby and we are once again talking about getting back to our vacations again. It didn’t happen this summer, but we may be able to revisit next summer.
