  • I've used bug spray on my son before when we went to the zoo since it is surrounded by marshland. Anyways, I sprayed it in my hand before applying it to him, making sure to not touch his hands or any other part of his body that I KNOW he sticks in his mouth (like his toes). Target also sells wipes in the baby aisle. Hope this helps!

  • I've heard that Avon Skin so Soft is okay to put on babies and will keep the bugs off... However you still need to keep it off anything going into their mouths (ex. hands feet)
