I just found out that my 12mo and I have head lice!!! There's an open pack of diapers in a crate on the floor can lice or their eggs get on those? If so should I just throw them out? I know it's probably a dumb question....I'm just overwhelmed right now

The lice 'can' get on them, but lice will not generally intentionally leave the head of their human host because they can not live very long w/out feeding off of your blood. They can not lay an egg unless they are attached to your hair at the time (and the egg attaches to your hair). If you want to be extra safe you can stick the diapers tied up in a garbage bag for a couple of weeks (since it can take up to 2 weeks for an egg to hatch), but I would not throw the diapers out... waste of money. ;)
