How Can Designer Netting Protect Your Baby from Outdoor Pests?

If you want to spend more time outdoors with your young baby but fear the dangers of the elements and biting pests, such as mosquitoes and gnats, place designer netting over your child's stroller or travel bed. Designer netting comes in many styles, colors, and materials. You can easily turn it into a protective barrier against nature's most annoying and potentially dangerous pets. Here are some great features of designer netting to look for and why.

Tightly-Woven Netting

The openings of your designer netting should be woven very close together in the fabric. You want to keep even the tiniest insects away from your baby. Some types of biting flies and gnats are small enough to fly or crawl through traditional mosquito netting. Not only is this unsafe for your baby's health if the insects bite them, the insects can also infect your child's travel bed or stroller with parasites and germs.

Mosquitoes are known to pass parasites to their victims when they bite them. However, different types of biting flies carry bloodborne pathogens, such as bacteria, in their mouths. They transfer the organisms to other living beings when they bite. The tightly-woven material of your netting protects your little one.


Other types of netting used for outdoor activities may be too thick to place over your baby's stroller or travel bed. The material of your netting should be sheer enough for your baby to see through. 

Sheer netting doesn't restrict your child's airflow when it's placed over a travel bed. You want your baby to experience the freshness of outdoors, as well as take in their environment. A sheer net helps your baby experience both. 

The perfect designer netting also protects your baby's skin from the sun and wind, especially if your baby has dry skin or infant psoriasis. A number of designer netting products come in nylon. Nylon is one of the best materials you can use for sun protection because it blocks many of the sun's UV rays. 

Lightweight and Convenient

Lightweight material won't weigh down your baby's stroller. If you plan to jog or walk long distances, these feature benefits you and your little one. You secure the material to your baby's stroller with clips, which keeps it from blowing off during windy days. 

Before you order your designer netting, be sure to measure the length and width of your baby's stroller and travel bed. You want the material to cover the stroller and travel bed completely.
