    insect repellant

    I am being attacked by mosquitoes and those nasty little bugs. Which repellant is safe in pregnancy? I've just come across the one made with tomato extract and eucalptyus. Thought I'd better ask to be safe!

    Anything that's good for kids is good for pregnant women. Try things with citronella, avoid DEET to be safe...

    I just got the tomato based repellent from Watson's, doesn't smell great but supposed to ok for pregnant women and more efficient than lemongrass.

    I asked the pharmacist and she advised that nothing was safe so Im sticking to the stickers. I agree - little nasty things
