kick out the mosquito

mothers have always been horrified terrified paranoid sleepless and what not when it comes to their kid’s health. I am no magician but I certainly wouldn’t mind for some magic to happen to keep D happy. oh shut up, every mom wants that too.

the weekend after Diwali we were traveling to this between-the-jungle resort in Udaipur. its an amazzzzzinnngg and beautiful place. and what comes complimentary in such resorts? worms, mosquitoes , bats , peacocks, birds, swans, bears, and much more. we stayed at top of the hill so bears dont bother this freaky mother… worms birds and peacocks are real fun to stare at… a bat did hit my brother in law on the head and we were all taken aback. I have no clue but D found this funny so we let the bat fly away alive. and the mosquitoes were thousands in number. As if there was some machine behind our cottage to multiply it. and no machine in the room with those liquid refills were of any help. at this very frightened moment i pulled out the sheet of mosquito repellant stickers. i have tried them all- yellow; red; white; animal prints too.

these are fab stuff… some work for 12 hours, some for 24 and some for 72hours.
however, what happens when my tired kid sleeps like this…???


he was so tired by the end of the long drive that my baby slept off before i could make him wear a tshirt and stick those orange peel scented stickers. i was worried but nevertheless had him wrapped up in a shawl and assuming the mosquitoes would pass by without noticing him. ya, like they were on their way to a blockbuster film and forget there is a feast waiting for them.. this is what moms think!! and this is exactly what happened…

mosquito bite

these are just three of the seven i saw the next morning. like my son was a fresh plate of crackling green salad. he kept on complaining of itching and this worried mother dialed a number… “Shreya, when will the blanket reach me?? I am traveling again next week and i so badly need it!! ”

by noon i saw this swollen ear and i could wait no longer-

by the time i saw some stars and moon crawling into the sky and my son using up all his last energy for the day jumping around and running about; this arrived. thank you Shreya! i smiled.

mosquito repellant blanket

Shreya, who makes mos-quit-o ,
a mosquito repellant blanket for everyone as freaked out as me. she makes them in two sizes for kids and adults and in two colors spearmint (blue/green) and bubblegum (pink/beige). and 6 block colors- honey, orange, blue, grey, green and red. aren’t the color names too cute??
these super soft cotton blankets for all year use are beautiful. when i first received it i opened up and kept on searching what makes it special?? it looks like just another blankie…
the cotton yarn is processed with a mosquito repellant which seeps into the
cotton fibers and binds itself to the cloth making it look so natural and yet works like no other blanket you would have used till now,

other things i really liked about this product was the non-smelly, no-fuss-orange-oil fragrance in the blanket like those on the stickers… they cover his full body at night, this is the perfect size for him right now and my son is 19months old.
{p.s certainly best thing to invest in at an early new born stage.}
this is the night view of the munchkin:


also the blanket is so compact that i can carry it with me anywhere i want, even in my motherbag with his other essentials.
this is the day view:
{yes, we practically use it everytime he sleeps now}

mos-quit-o repellant blanket

the blanket comes in this nice round box that you can hold in your hand and toss it in the car or luggage or pass it on to anyone who needs it.
also what i loved the best about the blanket was that its washable… home wash too. awesome right??? yay! and in case you are washing it once a month with your other comforters you can use this wonderful fellow for 4 years or upto 50 washes! high-five me!!!!!
this is one product that stays with me all the time now and rests with my flowery dohars

we trapped spider man in it!
once he finds his way out we shall fill it with broken half used crayons so they dont run on the walls when mumma is not around. 😉
