Somebody from my daughter's preschool just called to inform me that there was a kid in her class yesterday who had head lice. I know how to treat them; I got them once from a public laundromat--my head is itching just thinking about it. *Shudder.* So far, my boyfriend checked our daughter and doesn't see any bugs or nits, but she and I will both have to be wary for a few days. That's what mommies get for cuddling kiddoes, I guess. Anyway, is there anything I can do to prevent the lice from taking in the first place, if they're there? I soooo do not want to go through this!

No sharing combs, brushes, hair things, like ribbons scrunchies. Anything to do with the hair. Hats, scarfs.
Every one in the house should have their own brush and comb.
My oldest DD(when she was young). Slept in a bed with her half brother (they both were under 5 at the time). He gave her head lice tha way.
