Bug Spray While pregnant?

Has anyone heard that bug spray or certain bug sprays are unsafe during pregnancy, or for toddlers? Im planning on being outside all day and most of the night tomorrow for 4th of July, and was wondering if anyone knows if bug spray is safe for pregger women and toddlers? I was looking at buying the OFF smooth and dry bug spray. Any info is appreciated.

is the only one i could really find on babiesrus. im saying that because its a BABYsrus. so im assuming since it says for the whole family and its natural it would be safe on babies/pregnant women. but im just guessing

I was wondering the same thing, since im going camping this weekend. According to the research ive done its saying its safe. Just becareful with the amounts of DEET.
Some people use Fabric softner sheets they say it works wonders. Im not sure but i guess ill be using small amounts of bug spray and some fabric softner sheets.

I have heard that you can use it however DO NOT spray it on your skin, only on your clothing and you should never use bug spray with DEET in it on young children.

I've heard bugspray was a no-no...and that you should use things like Avon Skin So Soft or (this sounds crazy) Listerine, and citronella candles.  IF you do use it make sure that you don't put it on your skin or inhale the fumes while it is being sprayed.

K, Not sure if this works, but I've heard its awesome.  Poor mouth wash into a spray bottle and spray it around you .... apparently it keep the bugs away!
