We are going camping next weekend and I know not to spray bug spray or put cream on Emma's skin as she is only 11 and a half months old. I know your suppose to put it on the clothing but is any brand better or safer for infants? I want to protect her from the bugs and stuff but dont want to endanger her skin as well by getting the wrong cream or spray. Suggestions would be really appreciated.

Many essential oils repell bugs so I would look for anything natural. However still read the ingredient list, even supposed all natural companies are not that natural.

I use an all natural Bug Patch. You just squish the patch, stick it on their back, and it will release a bug repelling smell. It worked really well last summer for my kids. I just picked them up at our local grocery store, I hate the thought of all those chemicals being on or around them. The dryer sheets work pretty well also, I do that for myself.
