Ok so it is summer time and I have so many outdoor partys that my family is attending. Most of the partys that we have to go to are in the evening but I know bug spray is bad and someone told me to rub a drier sheet all over my daughter but i don't think that will work can someone give me some ideas on what I can do so my daughter doesn't get eaten alive by bugs

Last year I pinned dryer sheets to my kids because I was told it would keep mosquitos away, they ended up just looking silly with mosquito bites, however, they smelled good. As far as the baby, I try to put light material long sleeves and pants on her , or what I really like is the bug net that fits over her stroller, it works really well.

Avon Skin So Soft spray or lotion is supposed to help. I have a redhead that is 2 and he gets eaten alive so that's what I'm going to try ( I just ordered some). If you don't want to put anything on the skin, I've heard that just sticking a dryer sheet in their pocket will do the trick for bugs, but I haven't tried it so I'm not sure how well it works. I've put sunscreen on all my babies when at the pool and beach too.

So here is the skinny I got from a pharmacist absolutley nothing that does not say it is for infants under 6 mnths as their skin is very thin and so to much to quickly gets into thier blood stream so no calamine, no afterbite, no bug spray, no sunscreen, no dryer sheets in thier laundry or on thier skin. Sunscreen after 6 months I am not shure when you can start with bugsprays. Somethings are not till 2yrs
