When it comes to finding a safe way to guard your baby against mosquito's and other insects, there's not a lot of choices for kids under 6 months. You can choose to use a netted infant tent like the ones from BBLUV, or you just wing it. That is until the Buzz Patch came to the scene.
To be honest, I'm a skeptic, but after receiving so many first hand testimonials from friends and family around Prince George - Nest & Sprout placed our first order of the Buzz Patch, a product that you can use on your small babies to guard them from mosquitos.
But, I bet you have a ton of questions, and so here's the FAQ on these Mosquito Repellent Patches.

How do I place stickers to protect my whole child's body?
- Kids aged 0-2 need 1 patch: One patch placed centrally on clothes (ie, on their jumpsuit on the stomach, chest)
- Kids aged 3-5 need 2 patches: One patch on the top clothes (sweater, t-shirt) and one on the shorts.
- Kids aged 6+ and parents need 2-4 patches: One patch on the clothing next to each exposed limb (one on the sleeve of both the left and right arm, and if wearing shorts, one on the left and right side of the shorts)
How long will sealed stickers last?
The bag has a ziplock. Put the unused patches into the bag and seal it. BuzzPatch when sealed will last up to 24 months.
Where are BuzzPatch stickers made?
Patches are formulated and designed in Australia.
How do they work?
Mosquitoes find us by sensing the carbon dioxide (CO2) we emit when we exhale. Certain compounds, including specific essential oils, overpower the CO2 we emit, essentially hiding us from mosquitoes.
Our patch material was designed to hold the maximum amount of our essential oil blend, and release them in a consistent dose over 8 hours. This ensures maximum repellency, simply by sticking our patches on your clothes.
How do I use the Buzzpatch Sticker?
Simply peel off BuzzPatch sticker and place it on your clothing nearest to the exposed body areas
What's included in a package?

Do they have a smell?
Unlike smelly lotions that can cause headaches and dizziness, our essential oil blend gives off a smell that you and your family love (and that mosquitos absolutely HATE!
