Baby Hints & Tips

Mosquito Repellent

Mosquito repellent? What do you use?

  • Make your own! Equal parts of baby oil metho and detol! It’s called F off in our family! Lol.    Sarah
  •  Mouthwash… We used listerine mouthwash while in the Malaysian jungle with my then 7 month old plus hubby & I for over 2 weeks & not 1 bite. Works with flies & sand flies too.. Feels refreshing too.   Lynda
  •  I never used to care about insect repellents. Used it regularly. Until a can was accidentally left on a table and the residue on the base of the can disolved the varnish in 5 mins….. Now looking for alternatives. Be careful… Im horrified at what happened but Im no means a hippie with this stuff.   Dawn
  •  Off pump spray. No fumes smell nice. Works well on mozzie n sandfly.    Carla
  •  Bushmans.   Kristy_Lee
  •  A lavendar insect repellant from the lavendar farm emu bay kangaroo island. Great to spray the room at night to keep them away.    Kimberlee
  •  You can get insect repellant patches from Toys R Us – good for babies! Apparently for babies something that is DEET free is good.    Kat

  •  Nature’s botanical rosemary and cedarwood.    Nicky
  •  Nothing with deet in it. That’s cancerous.    Diana
  •  My gypsy child.   Jayde
  •  Thursday plantation is the best one! It’s all natural & smells great (I’ve been asked what perfume I’m wearing). I’ve used it for years & it’s even good for topical application on the bite if you forget to apply it. Also comes in a roll-on & lasts forever.    http://www.thursdayplantation.com/…/Tea-Tree-Walkabout… www.thursdayplantation.com Provides protection against biting insects and flies in a soothing and cooling base.    Lisa
