Fleas ! in your babies hair? What kind of fleas? Are you sure there not head lice?

We had fleas from a cat once my hb and daughters legs kept getting bitten, and then I found a couple in my home,I was mortified I went to the vets and bought some spray, everything got bleached, sprayed, washed or binned. I probably spent a good 15 hours on my house and I never found them again.

You can get human fleas but their rare go to the doctors and get some treatment and clean everything if it can't be cleaned or hot washed be brutal and bin it.

We are going to use one tomorrow with one of the treatments from online that I found that is safe and doesn't have any harmful chemicals. We have been dumping twice as much of the powders too so I feel you there. Your advice is fine I am studying to be a medical assistant and they don't even tell you things like that wish they did would be nice.

Aw i hope you get it sorted soon, I know how horrible it feels to have them in the home let alone your kids hair! What I did was bleach every nook and cranny then sprayed with the stuff from the vets I was meant to only use half a bottle and I used two whole ones, I turned my entire house upside down with in one day but I'm sure your trying everything, my advice is real poor I'm so sorry I can't help you. Just a thought have you rang and asked a vet surly it's happened before they may have some tips and have you used a headlice comb? Best of luck Jessica.

Its fleas alright.. I don't understand it either why they would be in here hair. She gets a bath every night I massage her hair with her shampoo and have even let it sit in her hair for a few minutes. Its not human fleas I have already checked. I did looked it up and a couple websites said that humans can get fleas from there animals. I found a remedy that I am gonna try that is with baken soda and warm water, lemon dishwasher soap it was a weird remedy but I am willing to try anything. I have washed her bedding our bedding, I have done flea powders and flea sprays. We are going to try Borax next for the floors and sofa.

Well they shouldn't be one to judge at all! If your baby's healthy and happy and loved I'm sure they won't even think twice they see all type of kids with all type of problems and the fact that your there trying to get rid of them will surely show them that your trying to remove the problem and doing all you can do :)



Wish you all the best!

Thanks. I am worried about taking her to the doctor I don't want them thinking bad about me. We have tried flea powders, flea spray even baking soda which I found online. None of it is working. I will just go ahead and call her doctor to see what she would have any suggestions. Thanks for the suggestionss

Fleas? Yes I would think lice treatment would help a little bit I can't say 100% sure that it will fix it but I think it old help.Maybe go to see a doctor? Or look for some affective ways to get rid of them online!



Best of luck :)
