Lakshmi while taking the child outdoors, a. U could make her wear full sleeve upper and full lenghth lower garments b. Rub neem oil on hands and legs which is a natural mosquito repellant and is safe for skin c. avoid use of dark colored clothes such as black and browns as theSe attract mosquitoes d. Or u could try using anti mosquito repellant stickers or patches which could be applied on baby's garment (please check it's effectiveness).

Hi Lakshmi! It's advisable to avoid use of mosquito repellant or direct application of creams on baby's skin. If u wish u cud apply cream behind baby's ears or at the sole of feet while baby is sleeping. You could use net to keep the baby safe and also try burning neem oil with a wick in a diya. Try keeping doors and windows shut during evening and at night. Hope this helps!
