  • I am so sorry. I suggest a bombing..do they do that for fleas? I would also find someplace else to sleep. You can resist scratching, but a baby might hurt themselves. Good luck

  • I would not suggest bombing with such a young baby in the house. Too many pesticides. First, you should vacuum EVERYDAY until you get them under control. Also, you should get your pet(s) on flea meds from a Vet. Some Vets sell just one dose (10-20 bucks, depending what kind you get) and will let you bring the animal in to weigh them without having to have an apt.

  • Oh, then just vacuum every day and they will go away. Do you have sand/dirt outside? The fleas will attach to your socks and come in, but they can't reproduce from human blood, so if you vacuum they will go away.

  • vacuum daily, but make sure you take the bag outside and get rid of it immediately or they'll find their way back out. Garlic and Brewer's Yeast supplements make your blood unappealing. Also, rubbing alcohol poured on your legs just before you come back in the house lowers your skin temperature and you won't have so many fleas jump on to be brought inside.
