I wouldn't use any of the common products since all have some sort of chemicals.
If any I would search an organic brand that specializes in baby products, check the following link to compare few - http://www.pristineplanet.com/eco-friend...

I recommend choosing a "physical" or "chemical-free" sunscreen made with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide.
Unlike chemical sunscreens, which may cause irritation or allergic reactions because the skin absorbs the active ingredients, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide sit on top of the skin, forming a barrier against the sun's rays.
I think the best one out their for your babies age is made by California baby. It is all natural and has none of the chemicals that other sun screens have. The down fall is the price.

my ped said no sunblock that young - just cover them up! i got a wetsuit from babygap - he is only exposed from the knees and elbows down.
also gymboree may have the matching top/bottom and in the past i bought from them a long sleeve wet suit type shirt with shorts.
have floats with sunshades if baby will be in the water.

It is recommended to NOT use sunblock on babies under 6 months. You have to take other precautions such as limiting sun exposure to 10 minutes, not having them out between 12-4, umbrellas, big floppy hats, and spf swimwear. You can find a lot of swimwear for babies that has 50 SPF. Be sure you keep the baby hydrated as well . . . babies this small can't regulate their body temps like older children. Good luck!
