Remember that day when you were sitting by the window while sipping a hot cup of coffee/ munching on some hot pakoras as you read you looked outside the window. There was freshness in the air and the aroma of soil as it rained helped you make peace with your mind and soul. Amidst that peace, you heard that unnecessary buzzing sound which annoyed you and that’s when you realized that your baby is at potential risk due to the mosquitoes.
This monsoon, your baby needs you to protect her from all those icky pesky mosquitos and small insects. Those pests can do so much harm to your little one...that you don’t even want to imagine!
They say prevention is better than cure. So, this monsoon, prevent mosquitoes from harming your little boo bear with these 6 mom’s favourite ways:
1.Give That Touchie A Wash
Bathing your baby is the most important thing to do especially during the time when it gets humid. The weather can cause a lot of sweat, allergies, fungal infection and rashes. To avoid these from happening to your child, you need to bathe your baby with soap once every day.
To lock the moisture, gently massage your baby’s limbs with some baby lotion. Don’t forget to wash and wipe every crease that appears on your baby’s body. Make sure you wash the armpits, thighs, genital area and the neck region.
Did you know?
Adding a few drops of neem oil in your baby’s bath will help in making a protective layer on your baby’s skin.
2.Use Appropriate Clothing
Nobody likes wearing tight and rough clothing during the rainy season. It is extremely annoying even for you, so dressing your baby in those clothes isn’t the best of the ideas.
Use clothes made up of cotton which is light in colour. This is because you need to let your child’s skin breathe and moreover, mosquitoes are attracted by dark colours. Dress those little ones in cute onesies and bodysuits. Just ensure you cover the tummy while dressing your baby.
3.Shut The Doors And Windows
Keep all your ventilation outlets shut or at least get them covered by a net so that the mosquitoes cannot penetrate through the net into your home.
Since mosquito bites could occur at any time of the day, it is advisable to keep the doors and windows shut. Switch on Good knight Activ+, the dual power mode ensures you are at ease even when the mosquitos are trying to barge into your precious home.
4.Choose A Mosquito Repelling Fragrance For Your Home
You don’t necessarily have to splurge on expensive air fresheners. You can buy fragrant incense sticks and essential oils for your home which will also act like air fresheners! Choose strong scents like lemongrass, eucalyptus, citronella, neem, cedar and lavender. On the other hand, aqua and fruity smelling fragrances tend to attract mosquitoes! So, choose wisely!

5.Cover Your Trash Can!
Mosquitoes love dirt and muck. So, your dustbin makes a perfect living habitat for the survival of these flying monsters. Therefore you need to ensure that you keep the trash can shut tight. Make it a habit to sort your wet waste (kitchen waste like vegetable peels) and dry waste (plastic, papers, etc). Keep your bin in places that have good ventilation.
6.Eat and Feed Fresh
Typhoid commonly spreads during monsoon season. You need to ensure that your child isn’t around contaminated water or consuming contaminated water. See to it that your child has been consuming home cooked hot food.
Hygiene has to be maintained throughout so that there isn’t even the smallest chance of infection!
