How can I protect my baby from mosquitoes and ticks?

Postnatal, Your questions

Marie, our daughter is already three months old and will go camping with us soon. We were wondering how we can protect our baby from mosquitoes and ticks that are abundant this time of year. What is your advice? Thank you for everything, Charles


Hello Charles,

An excellent question for parents and their children at any age! I did some research and found a lot of information which I put together in an article. In it, I talk about how to apply mosquito repellent for both pregnant women, babies and young children. Please read my article How to Protect Babies, Pregnant and Breastfeeding Women from Mosquitoes to learn more.

Talk soon,

Marie
