I was just wondering if it is okay to put bug spray on a 6 month old and if it is what kind?

  • Avon's skin so soft. Get the pump and spray it on your hands first and then rub it on your baby. Do not spray any aerosols of any kind on your baby and don't use anything with deat.

  • No! I don't think that it's safe at all! If anything...ask your pediatrition. Maybe you could use some Skin so soft...but no bug spray.

  • NO! Don't use anything with DEET in it, either. Skin so Soft by Avon would be the only thing I might use, but if I were you, I'd get one of those Off clip on things and just put it near baby (out of reach, of course!!!!!) so that you're not putting anything on baby's delicate skin.
