I googled " how did my mixed baby get lice?" and this site popped up. i was directed to a post about lice but alot of the comments said they never heard of such a thing. Well about 24 hrs ago I found out my 4 month old baby girl has lice. I am black and her dad is black and white. She has very fine straight hair. When we went to the dr ( who also has mixed babies) told me, my heart was broken. Its weird dealing with this and I feel so bad. She said due to lice being attracted to a certain hair follicle type and dry scalp she was the perfect candidate. My other children are mixed except my oldest but their hair is thicker and curlier. Is anyone dealing with this? Or just dealt with lice? We started first treatment last night and the next one in a week. I also started my other kids on it but the dr said she doubts they get lice But I have been in close contact with my baby and I recently permed my hair after 5 years and I found a bug in my hair!!
