Spring is here, and that means clouds in the sky, flowers in the ground, and mosquitos in the air. Yes, the arrival of warm weather comes with a downside in the form of bugs that won't stop biting our kids. While it's easy to find a spray that keeps bugs away, it's extremely difficult to find one that is safe for children (and even adults). Most repellents contain DEET, a highly effective and highly toxic chemical that can cause rashes, headaches, seizures, and other conditions. Luckily, you don't need to sacrifice your children's health to protect them from pesky critters.

Here, 10 store-bought sprays that safely protect your tots from bug bites. And for you DIY moms, we even have one repellent you can make with a few easy-to-find ingredients.
