Going to Texas (Dallas) in August for a wedding. I've been warned that my (then will be) 4 month old little girl could get bug bites. What's my best defense for her?

  • I live near Dallas and worst thing is the heat not the bugs lol I use the medicated fan and it kills them as well as keeps them off!!!

  • not sure what there is to put directly on baby's skin but they sell these awesome bug nets that fit around a stroller/carseat to keep them protected. We had a bad bee summer last year and I took my then 4 month old EVERYWHERE with one and we managed to survive the summer with no bites/stings.
    They sell them at WalMart
