I use Skin So Soft too! Love it! The funny thing is, I actually used that when I was a kid. ;)

I use Avon's Skin So Soft body oil on my 2 year old. Completely safe with NO pesticides of any kind. We could use it on her as a newborn if we wanted to (doctor agreed when we brought a bottle to show him the ingredients). It repels mosquitoes and ticks and other ickies like magic without the disgusting chemical smell.

rub an unused bounce dryer sheet on all uncovered skin, then stick the dryer sheet in your childs pocket. This repels mosquitos, chiggers, spiders. Cheap easy method.

Me ped said I could use bug spray with up to 25% DEET and around here I did because we have gnats and mosquitos coming out of our ears in summer. I didn't have as good a luck with the "natural" repellants...eucalyptus, etc. They make wipes so don't have to worry about the spray going places you don't want it.

I had trouble with this too and found a natural patch called "Don't Bite Me" that is DEET free, waterproof, and protects up to 36 hours. It says it works for mosquitoes, gnats, ticks, chiggers, and sand fleas. I found it at Rite Aid. The only downfall is that you have to apply it two hours before you plan to be outdoors. Here's their website: www.dontbitemepatch.com
