Well, you can use mosquito repellent for babies of course! In this post, I’m going to go over the best mosquito repellent for babies so you can keep your little one protected during those outdoor play dates.Mosquito bites are not just annoying – they can actually be dangerous to your little one. Not only do mosquitoes spread illness, they can also infect you or your baby with diseases including malaria. Mosquitoes can bite at night when your child is sleeping and this is the most dangerous time. Protecting your baby from mosquitoes will help them to avoid diseases and it makes for a better night’s sleep for everyone.Billions of inhabitants of our little planet Earth have mosquitoes. If a person is bitten by a mosquito, he can get sick. Mosquitoes carry viruses and bacteria which cause various diseases – diarrhea, conjunctivitis, malaria, etc. In Africa and Asia, the risk of getting infected by malaria is very high. Malaria is transmitted not only by mosquitoes but also by other insects – tsetse flies, fleas, and other blood-sucking bugs.

A way to make a baby-friendly insect repellent

A safe way to keep the insects at bay is by making a baby-friendly insect repellent. This solution can be made at home, and it’s effective against mosquitoes, flies, and ticks. It’s also easy to use—simply spray it onto skin or clothing and let dry before heading outdoors.

It’s best to make a large batch so that you have enough on hand for future outings (or if you run out). Here’s how:

  • Add 20 drops of lemongrass essential oil into 16 ounces of witch hazel (in your choice of scent or unscented)
  • Add 30 drops of citronella essential oil into 16 ounces of witch hazel

Mix well and enjoy!
