Our children are most precious to us and we take every necessary step to ensure their safety and well-being. One potential threat to their health that’s prevalent right now is insect and mosquito bites.
Mosquitoes are particularly dangerous due to the various mosquito-borne diseases such as Malaria, Dengue, Yellow fever, Zika Virus, multiple forms of Encephalitis and West Nile Virus. Apart from diseases carried by mosquitoes, just scratching the bites can lead to skin infections and allergies.
But don’t worry: you can easily prevent your babies from mosquito bites by following specific tips:
- Applying repellent creams or sprays to the exposed areas of the skin like face, arms, and legs. For babies below 6 months old, use it on your baby’s clothing, carriers, and objects around the baby. Wash off repellents before putting your baby to sleep.
- Wearing full-length pants and long sleeve shirts to protect your skin from mosquitoes.
- Making sure your windows and doors are properly sealed and installing screen windows and screen doors.
- Using a fan to increase the air flow to make it harder for mosquitoes to rest on your skin.
Besides all the tips above, mosquito nets are the most effective, traditional, all-natural and cheapest means of protection that have no side effects, use no chemicals on the skin, and do not require any electric charging. Mosquito nets let the fresh air pass through but keep the bugs out. They can be installed anywhere and are available with various designs. Since mosquitoes can still bite through the net, it’s important to keep yourself away from the net. Saying that, a four-corner mosquito net allows much more space for you to move around and stretch on your bed than a circular mosquito net does.
