Hey! I had done some research on this earlier this summer - I am deathly afraid of mosquitoes so I wanted to make sure we were all protected :P check out the couple of sites I found - hope they help!

Also, Other insect repellents that are generally safe in children include those made with Citronella (Avon's Skin-So-Soft) and soybean oil (Bite Blocker).

I use Burt's Bees or something from a health food store. They are wipes and you can get them at Better Health.
