1. In the water: Keep your child within reach whenever she's around water. Safe Kids Canada recommends personal flotation devices for kids under five or for those who are weak swimmers – even when they're just near water.
4. At the cottage: Put aside insect repellents that contain DEET (they can be harmful if swallowed) and try a remedy that your child doesn't need to wear, such as OFF! Clip-On Mosquito Repellent ($12). Clip it to an umbrella, the top of a tent – anywhere that's out of your child's reach.
