What bug repellant is best for an 8 month old?

Besides long sleeves and avoiding buggy times. Even the natural stuff I've seen say "keep out of reach of children". She's CONSTANTLY putting her hands in her mouth and rubs her face.

  • Everything says " keep out of reach of children". Companies don't want the kid to spray it in the eyes or mouth or something along that line. I always used skin so soft when my little ones were small. I didn't like the idea of spraying my kids with pesticides and them putting there hands in the mouth.

  • Never put Avon Skin So Soft on a baby. Read the chemicals. They would be dangerous in the mouth or eyes. There is nothing safe for a baby. Keep a baby in areas away from insects.
