    Default Baby products

    So we are heading to Malaysia in November. Are there products that are safe to use on baby for:
    Sunscreen
    Insect repellent

    Thanks in advance

    How old is baby?

    There are infant sunscreens, not sure about insect sprays. You could try eucalyptus oil on their clothes?

    Hi march...we just got back from 5 months in Thailand, our sons are 8 months old. You can generally get Aussie brands in Asia, though they will cost you. Our paed in Bangkok said there was no real safe mozzie repellant for infants, but you have to weigh up the DEET absorption vs mozzie-borne disease. Take some with u from home if you can. I would generally advise not to use 'herbal' or 'natural' supermarket products in Thailand (I am sure it is similar in Malaysia) as they are unregulated.

    Prevention was our approach. Good luck
