There are many safe and effective insect repellents that you can use to protect your child, including those that use deet, citronella, or soybean oil. Remember to only use products that are approved for children, follow the manufacturer's instructions and wash off the insect repellents when you return indoors.
Insect repellents with deet are probably the best and most commonly used. Although it is absorbed through your child's skin, it is generally safe as long as the product has less than 10% deet.
Using Insect Repellents Safely
Here are some more tips on the safe use of insect repellents on your kids:
Apply repellents only to exposed skin and/or clothing (as directed on the product label). Do not use under clothing.

Never use repellents over cuts, wounds, or irritated skin.

Do not apply to eyes and mouth, and apply sparingly around ears. When using sprays do not spray directly onto face; spray on hands first and then apply to face.

Do not allow children to handle the products, and do not apply to children's hands. When using on children, apply to your own hands and then put it on the child.

Do not spray in enclosed areas. Avoid breathing a repellent spray, and do not use it near food.

Use just enough repellent to cover exposed skin and/or clothing.
Heavy application and saturation is generally unnecessary for effectiveness; if biting insects do not respond to a thin film of repellent, then apply a bit more.

After returning indoors, wash treated skin with soap and water or bathe. This is particularly important when repellents are used repeatedly in a day or on consecutive days. Also, wash treated clothing before wearing it again. If you suspect that you or your child are reacting to an insect repellent, discontinue use, wash treated skin, and then call your local poison control center. If/when you go to a doctor, take the repellent with you.

To keep your children safe from insect bites, you can also:

Make sure to keep as much of her skin covered with clothing as possible, including long sleeve shirt, long pants, socks, and a hat.

Wear light colored clothing, so as not to attract bugs.

Avoid using any scented soaps or other products on your baby, since the fragrances can also attract insects.

Apply insect repellents to clothing instead of to skin so that it won't be absorbed.

Follow the instructions, including age restrictions on any insect repellent you are considering using.
