mosquito cream for baby
Applying a spray, gel or cream repellent on your baby's skin is the most effective way to prevent a mosquito from your child. Choose a repellent suited for children or infants. Don't apply a thick layer of product in the hope of better protection. This will expose your baby to more chemicals than required without any added benefit. Instead, use just enough repellent to cover your child’s exposed skin. Always follow the instructions on the product label. Spray repellents in open areas to avoid breathing them in. Never spray insect repellent directly onto your child’s face. Instead, spray a little on your hands first and then rub it on your child’s face. Avoid eyes and mouth and do not spray or apply insect repellent on cuts, wounds, or irritated skin. Do not use insect repellent on babies younger than two months.
