    Default Safe mosquito repellant for babies room

    I wasnt sure where to post this, but thought here might be ok. We live in a highly populated mosquito area thanks to the rivers and lakes nearby. We have screens on all windows and doors, but ocassionally one will get into my daughters room, she is 6 months old and sometimes wakes in the morning having been eaten alive by mozzies. She reacts really badly to them, as i do.
    Can anyone recommend a safe, non smelling mozzie repellant that i can leave in her room? At the moment ive started spraying flyspray in there every night, but it stinks and cant be good for her to breathe in all the time! Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    In my son's room we use a Mortein Odourless Mozzie repellent. It plugs into the wall.. wait up i'll find a picture..

    That thingie.
    It plugs into the wall and you can either use the pad or get a jar of the stuff, and it works a TREAT! My boy is allergic to mozzies and comes up in hives, when I have this on he's fine as, if I forget to turn it on or run out of stuff, he's spotty the next day.

    perfectly safe, my doctor recommended it to us.

    I use a mixture of half dettol and half baby oil on my boys and it works a treat.. maybe u could give her a massage after her bath and still use the plug in as extra guard.

    I use both and the one night I didn't they woke up with bites all over them... sand flies will be the death of me Im telling u

    If you want to limit the ammount of poisons your baby breathes in by using sprays and plug ins a mozzie net is a great way to go. I made an oil based product, (you can use plain olive oil or almond oil etc) with lavender and rosemary in it. I let it sit for a cpl of weeks and put it to the test. It doesnt smell alot and it works wonders, because it is oil based it doesnt wear out as easy as something water based. It even works ok for flies!!
