Use Maxi’s bug and mosquito repellent for babies to keep pesky bugs away from your little one and ensure they do not get bitten. Simply apply to exposed skin as needed. If mosquitoes are a problem at night, keep a mosquito net ready for round-the-clock protection.

Yes! Maxi’s mosquito repellent can be used on infants from just 3 weeks of age. With its soothing blend of citronella, lemon grass and avocado oil, Maxi’s keeps the bugs away without any harsh chemicals that will irritate your baby’s skin.

Unfortunately, mosquitoes love babies too! Mosquito bites can cause your baby discomfort and make them scratch, which can worsen the bite area. They’re more of an irritant than likely to cause any harm, but monitor the bite to make sure it doesn’t worsen.

Sometimes it seems so! But babies are more oblivious to the pesky bugs at their young age, making them easier targets for mosquitoes, and likelier to be bitten. That’s why it’s important to ensure your child is protected with Maxi’s whenever there are mosquitoes about.

Yes, lemongrass is effective in keeping mosquitoes away, as it contains citronella oil, which is a natural insect repellent. A 2011 study showed that lemongrass is up to 95% effective in repelling the bugs. 

Avocado oil doesn’t have notable mosquito repellent properties itself, but makes an excellent natural, non-greasy carrier oil that can be easily applied and absorbed by the skin. And it’s high in vitamin E, potassium, lecithin and many other nutrients that nourish the skin.

Most bug bites are completely harmless, but some children – like anyone – can have an allergic reaction. Symptoms of allergic reactions to insect bites include difficulty breathing, swelling lips and tongue, becoming disorientated, and widespread rash. Call your doctor if your little one responds with any of these symptoms. 

Mosquitoes, ants, fleas, flies, gnats and other bugs can bite your child. Generally these aren’t serious – but rather prevent the temporary irritation with a natural oil-based insect repellent like Maxi’s mosquito lotion for babies.  

On top of your Maxi’s bug repellent, there are a number of other things you can do to protect your child from bugs. Lightweight, breathable protective clothing that reduces exposed skin is easy and effective. A mosquito net is also very effective in keeping mosquitoes out of baby cots, prams and strollers, and doesn’t have the health risks of chemical sprays, coils and mats. These chemical repellents and insecticides contain poisonous fumes that can irritate your child’s respiratory system, and so should only be used outdoors.

We think the best mosquito repellent for babies uses natural oils to keep the pesky bugs away. Maxi’s Bug Cream uses a gentle, easily-absorbed formula of citronella-rich lemon grass and avocado oil to ensure bothersome bugs don’t irritate your little one.
