    Default Mosquito repellent for babies?

    Does anyone know if you can get mozzie repellent for babies under 12mths?? If not, any suggestions on how to keep them away?

    (apart from putting a wrap over them or keeping them inside :/ thanks)

    You can get junior repel for 6+ months. You can also buy herbal mosquito repellents.

    Thank-you - would that be from a chemist? The local Safeway where I am only has 12mths+ aeroguard.

    Yes a chemist for Repel. The herbal ones from health food or ecostores (I haven't actually found one that works for me yet - but aero guard doesn't work for me either)

    I've also seen insect repellant wipes at the chemist. Much much easier than the sprays especially with babies and little kids!

    Lavender oil seems to work as well!

    There is a special vanilla one for babies sold at our markets here in Darwin - which is supposed to be awesome. Not sure if it's this brand exactly, but found this on a quick google search vanilla mozi - find them on Facebook as well

    My dad was telling me the other day that BCF sells bracelet things for children that repel mozzies but wasn't sure what age that are for... I was gonna call and find out as we live on acreage and they are bad!!! My 1 yr old son has had a reaction to other things so I was gonna see if these would be suitable for him
