It is so disappointing to see my baby bitten by a mosquito. It creates red swelling on her skin that looks like very itchy. Avoiding mosquito attack is difficult to do, thus I ask my baby’s doctor if what topical solution I can safely apply for my baby, to protect her from the mosquito’s bite.
My baby has very sensitive skin, so I need to be extra careful with what I should apply.
The doctor told me to buy citronella to get rid of mosquitoes. I tried some stores, but I couldn’t find the brand that she mentioned so I just decided to go to Healthy Options shop, as this store is also known for selling organic supplements.
I ask the saleslady about their organic/natural solution that I can use for my baby. She recommended Lafes Baby Insect Repellent as one of their bestseller option. Lafes baby is a Chemical and Deet free product, so I decided to try.
To use, I shake it first and spray to the exposed skin of my baby every 3 hours. Please note to avoid contact with the eyes or mouth. I also do not apply it to my baby’s fingers as she used to thumb-suck and I don’t want her to accidentally intake some of its residues.
The spray actually smells good, soothing and pleasant.
Here are the ingredients of Lafes Baby Insect Repellant:
Active Ingredients (0.33%)
- Essential Oils of : Pelargonium Graveolens (Geranium)
Other Ingredients (99.67%)
- Aqua (Water), Essential Oils of: Cedrus Atlantica (Cedarwood), Eucalptus Globulus (Eucalyptus), Citris Medica Limonum (Lemon), Lavandula Officinalis (Lavender), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Essential Oil Dispersant from Sweet Almond Oil)

Lafes baby is actually effective in protecting my baby from the mosquitoes, however you must not forget to re-apply again every 2-3 hours, since it only last for a short period of time.
