dami kagat ng baby ko, not sure who the culprits are. im suspecting ants, pero lagi naman malinis yung bed namin. bed bugs? not sure kasi almost one year pa lang yung mattress namin. hindi din naman sya mosquito bites. worried ako kasi aside sa nangingitim, it leaves unsightly marks sa skin ni baby. gusto ko try off lotion pero baka hindi pa pwede sa 1-year old kid like her. would like to ask recommendations po sana kung anong effective insect repellant ang puwede ko gamitin sa kanya and san sya puwede bilhin if ever... thanks..

Hi Amilah! Like your baby, Mika i also a favorite target of mosquitos  :(  There used to be an Enfant anti-mosquito lotion safe for kids but they stopped producing that na. Other mom's I've talked to said the all-natural citronella mosquito repellant from Ilog Maria in Tagaytay http://www.ilogmaria.com is effective too. And you can buy them online. But they don't spray it on their babies skin. They spray it around the house as in the curtains, bedsheets, etc. Giga also has natural mosquito repellants. I think you can find those at Tiendesitas.

I personally haven't tried it but I probably will. Right now I'm using another all-natural citronella solution for her which I found in Shopwise. I can't remember the name but it says no-DEET.

Here's something you might find useful too: http://mom.exchange.ph/index.php/2006/09/18/mosquito-repellant/

Hope this helps!  :)

we use GIGA Healthy Home Citronella - Natural Insect Repellant Spray... we first saw it at Tiendesitas.. then nakabili din kami sa Watson's... safe for young kids..

advise din ng pedia is to keep your baby's skin moisturized with any baby lotion (we use Aveeno or Nivea baby)

Now I agree with you all moms!! Matagal ko na din ginagamit yung Giga Natural Insect Repellant spray and noticed matagal tagal na din alang pantal baby ko! hehe.. Bought it at Tiendesitas months ago and it's super effective! Yung Lemongrass nga lang kinuha ko instead of citronella since mas kayaya aya sa pang-amoy ko yung Lemongrass. Pero for 150 bucks, sulit na sulit sya. Thanks for the recommendation moms!!

I followed an advice of another on-line Mom. I use ordinary baby lotion on my kids at bedtime. It's just to mask their scent so bedbugs won't bite. I think often use of off lotion is bad. What I did is mix the baby lotion with a little baby cologne para mas ayaw ng bedbugs yung scent. So far effective siya. I've been doing it for 3 weeks and they don't get a single bite yet. I also put PJs and socks on them and a bit of lotion left on my palm after application, I wipe my hands on their PJs to get their clothes scented too.

  I'm using off lotion for kids it can be use outdoor and indoor, pero during bed time i use off lotion overtime ok naman sya and really mabango it doesn't smell like medicine plus it also moisturizes my baby's skin.

our pedia said that aside from the smell the body temperature is the most appealing to insect. he reccommended us to use johnson body warming oil on the body. it's effective to repel mosquito and other insects. ;)

Thank God for this thread. I've been scouring supermarkets' isles for days now looking for natural insect repellants. My baby has bites from unknown insects as well and they're leaving "pantal" on her skin. I already vacuum cleaned our room as a precautionary measure. So far, no new bites yet. But I'm not taking chances. hehe. Thanks mommies for the suggestions!

So far wala pa akong nakikitang insect bite sa skin ng baby namin since we used the Victoria herbal laundry soap. I guess the scent of it (milder scent ng citronella/mansanilla) repels mosquito. Aside from that its mild on babies skin wala ng rashes and baby ko. Eh dito pa sa house namin sobrang malamok. try it lang po it might work din for your kids. ;)

Hi Mommies,

my daughter is using NO BITES BAR from BY NATURE handmade soaps. It only costs P115/100g bar but works great on her skin. It's all natural, moisturizing/non-drying and deet-free!  ;)

i got it at cash and carry grocery. I'm sure other grocery has it as well. It's just a few pesos more compared to perla but i like this better since its herbal. By the way super ok din yung powder na victoria pangbabad sa mga fabric na may stains.
