In brief: Try not to use
Most insect repellents have the ingredient deet which when absorbed through the skin can be neuro-toxic ( hurt our nervous system. Low dose 7-10% deet can be used on children but for babies i would try to use netting.
You can spray some on their clothes and stroller as this may help. There are also some organic products which do not contain deet.
