13 Bug Sprays for Kids and Babies to Help Protect During Your Next Family Outing
A simple bug bite may not seem like a big deal, but the health risks of exposure to those two pests are high as both mosquitoes and ticks can carry an array of diseases.
When picking out an insect repellent for kids and babies, your priority should be to choose one that’s registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). “EPA registration of skin-applied repellent products … indicates that they have been evaluated and approved for human safety and effectiveness when applied according to instructions on the label,” says Robert Daguillard, a spokesperson for the EPA. “Our evaluation includes ensuring that the registered product does not harm vulnerable populations, including children and pregnant women.”
