Can i use bug spray on my 10 month old?

We never really go outside and stay for very long, but i was wanting to do some gardening this afternoon and was thinking i would put her in her play pen on the porch . I am wanting to repot some of my plants that are out there. Anyways her in Texas right now, the mosguitos are kind of bad in the afternoons and i didn't know if i could use the skintastic stuff on a 10 month old.You know they are always putting there hands and arms up by there mouths. So i am really not too sure. Is it safe?

  • Just don't put it on her hands, and don't spray directly on her, spray your hand and wip it on her.

  • Yes it is safe to use. My daughter is 6 months and my pediatrician said I could start using mosquito repellant. Dont put it on her hands and try to find one without a scent.
