Hi Y’all! Ever since I was little I have been a mosquito magnet. It’s insane; I will be outside for 5 minutes and have at least 4 bites. They like my blood and love to feed on me. Yuck!! When we planned our visit to New Jersey I knew we would be outside a lot so on to Google I went. I tried to find the best mosquito repellent for Emersyn that I could find. I know that babies aren’t supposed to have Deet and the sprays aren’t the best because they breathe it in. I wasn’t opposed to the bracelet bug repellents, but Emmie eats everything and I didn’t want her sucking on the repellent. (YUCK) This leads me to the best bug replant I found. It’s called Simba Natural Mosquito Repellent Sticker. These stickers come in a pack of 16 and they have citronella and lemon extract. I was weary that they wouldn’t work because it’s a sticker, but to my surprise they did! Emmie didn’t get bit at all, nothing. (Maybe I should have worn all 16 stickers!) The stickers come in a resalable pouch and the individual stickers are good for up to 72 hours. I will warn you though; the smell when you first open the resalable bag is very strong. However, when you put the individual sticker on your child, it isn’t overwhelming.
This is the best option that I found that worked for us, I liked that it wasn’t a spray or lotion that had to be applied to her skin. Any momma’s find another bug repellent they found works for their little?
