my baby is five months old and i'm wondering if it's ok to put mosquito repellant on him, and if so, what's a good brand? Thanks

I went to the pharmacy and they gave me a aroma oil which I put a few drops on each side of her little bed. My girl got badly stung by mosquitoes. Other than that: use a mosquito net!

You shouldn't start using that kind of stuff until 12 months at the very least. Apparently the Bounce sheet in the pocket works quite well. This might sound funny, but monkeys in South America rub lemon wedges on themselves to keep bugs off, lol. Ya never know...
