Hi Apeksha! Yes u r absolutely right smoke emitted by mosquito repellants/coils is not safe for kids and can cause serious breathing problems and other illnesses. You could try some of the following home remedies which are safer: A. Neem oil burnt in a diya with wick. B. lemon grass scented candles C. Lemon grass essential oils D. Mosquito nets E. Odomos to be applied behind ears and sole of feet once baby is in the bed so that child/ baby doesn't ingest it. Hope this would help!
