Mother of sunburnt baby made an honest mistake

Editor's Viewpoint

Young mum Alex Dodds, who feared people would think her a bad parent because her four-month-old son got badly sunburned on a day out, has no need to worry. By sharing her experience she has proved herself a very caring person. No doubt many parents have made the same mistake on a day out, forgetting to reapply suncream, especially when the weather becomes cloudy.

The lesson is that the harmful rays can still penetrate and that young children should be swathed in sunblock or a very high factor cream. Thankfully, Alex's son Jacob is now fully recovered from his ordeal, and other parents have been warned of the danger.
