The Dos And Don'ts of Repelling Mosquitos

As if mosquitoes aren’t annoying enough to us adults, they also come hovering for the little ones and their super sensitive skins! And since baby skin is delicate, the skin reactions can be nasty. Clearly then, they are a massive cause of concern to parents.

Parents need to pay special attention when preventing their tiny tots from those biting beasts. Specially, because not all mosquito repellents are child friendly! Well, the list of must dos and don’ts is not too hard to follow. Read on!     

Prevention is better than cure, take cues from here...

 

Clothing

Don’ts

Baby clothing needs to essentially be season specific. While you might want to cover your baby from head to toe to prevent those nasty mosquito bites, make sure you keep the weather in mind.

Dos

Outdoors and summers are mosquito magnets but you obviously can’t cover your baby in a thick body suit! You must use fabrics that breathe and let your child be. You can also opt for cotton baby sets.  

Having said that, minimal skin exposure is a good way to prevent mosquito bites! Baby body suits are a good idea during winters.   

  

Liquid vaporizers

Don’ts

Not all liquid vaporizers are custom made for the benefit of kids. Most plug-in mosquito repellents can contain chemicals which prove harmful when inhaled. They can cause or aggravate breathing problems, even irritate eyes and cause allergies.

Dos

It is best then that you only opt for vaporizers that disperse quickly and uses technology which is a superior and more effective in result. So you can switch the vaporizer on for some time to get rid of mosquitoes and switch it off well before you bring your baby in.

Well the DND Turblo Liquid Vaporizer has an inbuilt sensational Turbo Fan Technology that spreads the active faster and farther helping in quicker dispersion and prevention from mosquitoes. Plus the DND Turblo Liquid Refill uses 1.6% TFT active which is a superior in quality and more effective.  The best part being that the inbuilt fan helps in creating a 360-degree preventive shield as this liquid converts itself into vapour and gets circulated to even the farthest corners of the room!

The DND Vaporizer also comes with 2 modes to choose from, depending on your custom needs pick one of these - Turbo Mode or Turbo Booster Mode!

 

 

Insect Spray

Most households are reluctant to use insect repellants in the form of a spray, all because it leaves a residue, can get sprayed in the eye and most importantly, is considered harmful for children. However, spraying the DND Nanosol Flying Insect Killer in the corners of the room is okay. The sprayed surface allows the active to remain in the air from where it releases the slowly and continuously for 12 hours giving an overnight prevention from mosquitoes.  

 

Mosquito nets

Don’ts

Mosquito nets come in all sizes and shapes. Portable ones are good but if you are constantly going to take the baby out for feeds and change of nappies it is ineffective!

Dos

Baby cots or family beds, mosquito nets are both, harmless and cost effective. Plus, they have zero side effects.

 

Coils

Don’ts

Coils may be good at driving mosquitoes away but they are an absolute no when it comes to homes with babies and toddlers. Not only are they dangerous for crawling babies and toddlers, the ash they leave behind and the smoke they emit is also harmful. In some cases, the smoke from coils can cause allergies and breathing problems such as asthma.

Dos

However, when coupled with the DND Aeromax Coil Diffuser that boosts the coil’s actions with its inbuilt Turbo Fan, it can be used to the effect of efficiency. These coil diffusers are portable, cover the coil entirely and have rechargeable batteries that make them super-efficient and clean to use. While these DND Aeromax Coil Diffusers are in action anytime, even when power is not available, they are also made in 98% natural ingredients that make them safe and child friendly.

Moreover, the Coil Diffuser comes with a 2-hour rechargeable battery which is again a first in its league!

 

 Plug-in mats

Don’ts

Plug-in mats are only as harmful as coils and liquid vaporizers and are not safe for your baby. If you have a toddler or a crawling baby in the house, you also need to be careful that your kid doesn’t eat or play with one.

Dos

The only thing to do with plug-in mats is to not use them!
