It's been so buggy here lately. What are you all using to fight off the bugs? I haven't used anything on Ruby, but if things get bad enough I may order some Badger Balm.

They are starting to get bad here, too. I just ordered some bug spray from The Honest Company and will update when we use it.

Getting bad here, too. I have no clue what to use for Sean! Was thinking of getting a citronella torch or something.

We don't really have a bug problem here in California. Is this something I have to look forward to when we move to the east coast??!!

Yeah, there are more bugs out here, Erin. But the ocean breeze helps a lot where you'll be.

Use a bounce sheet (dryer sheet), just rub them down. I live in Louisiana and they are horrific. It really works!

We used to use AVON skin so soft and we also put it on our horses. That was several years ago tho.
I saw a commercial for the bug spray clippie thing you hang on your pant loop.
But as for babies we just keep the under a mosqiuto net. I have no idea what would be "safe" for a baby..

I make my own with a mixture of Melaleuca products. Safe for kiddos and it smells good. And it works!
