ATLANTA, GA, October 10, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Bulk disposable diaper provider, Stork Nest, offers some helpful information to parents about which type of insect repellent is best for children. It is the peak season for mosquitoes and many other outdoor pests. Taking preventative measures is a must to avoid getting bit, especially because kids are more susceptible to the effects of bug bites than adults. While you may see a small degree of swelling after getting bit, your child could potentially have a nasty reaction.
The training pants supplier note that before you purchase any type of insect repellent be sure you know which ones are safe for children.
What to Look for in Repellents
The main active ingredient in most repellents is N-diethyl-meta-toluamide, more commonly known as DEET. It is very effective at deterring pests and is also safe to humans. The Fitti diapers retailer says DEET can be found in most repellents at varying concentrations. According to the CDC, it is unsafe to use repellent on any infant younger than two months old due to their skin's extreme sensitivity.
According to Nicole Bruck, Marketing Development Supervisor for Stork Nest, "When choosing insect repellent, just know virtually all products are safe for children, but not infants. The only exceptions are repellents containing oil or eucalyptus oil because it is more potent than DEET and can potentially harm kids under the age of three."
Make sure to take extra precautions when applying repellent to children. Avoid excess contact directly on skin and don't put it on their hands, as most kids tend to suck their thumbs.
