15 month old with lice???? Wth!

Posted by   + Show Post
Yep. This is so disgusting and embarrassing but both my dds have lice. My 5 1/2 yo started scratching today and an hour and a half later I had pulled 2 huge lice and about 100 nits. I felt so itchy myself I rushed to my sisters house so she could check me too but she said I was clean. We were playing with my 15 mo and jokingly I said oh let's check her. My sister started messing with her hair and right away found one. About an hour later she pulled 2 lice as well and about 25 nits. I am in shock and feel so bad and horrible and I don't know what to do. This is the first time for my oldest to have them and I would have never imagined my lil one would have them too. I refuse to use pesticides for their hair so for now I will be going through their hair EVERYDAY until I get everyone of those dame ugly things. I sleep with my little one and about once a week my oldest sleeps with me too. I know it's a matter of time before I get them too which I'm surprised I haven't yet :/ Any mommies have any natural remedies?? I read rosemary and tea tree oil helped. Oh Lord I feel like crying. Help!!??

Haha it came back to haunt you.


Quoting xpectingmama10:

Lol not shaved just boy short ughhhh someone posted a middle school field trip pic on fb and it was me with short hair. Looool ewwww



Quoting babybuddafly:

Oh my goodness poor you lol. No shaving here haha






Quoting xpectingmama10:

The vinegar is for effective that's why we did it more offer they like the sweet smell of it and it kills them. I had if off and on for 5 years. My parents chopped all my hair off too. But I don't suggest that lol I am still traumatized 18 years later.







Quoting babybuddafly:

When I was little and had them my mom would always saturate my hair with alcohol and sit me in the sun while she went through my hair. That didn't make them go away for me :/










Quoting xpectingmama10:

I had long long hair as a child so they loved me I got it all the time until my mom washed my hair with rubbing alcohol once a week and vinegar every other day and it never came back.

Put 10 drops of teatree oil in your shampoo.. It will prevent reinfestation.

And then use baby oil with 25 drops of teatree oil in it.. Put it on your head, and both dd's head's. 

While it is on your heads go clear the bedding from each bed and put it into huge garbage bags and then wash them and dry them on the highest heat setting!

Hugs hun!

OMG I hate lice!! What's worse than little kids getting it? I got lice in high school! I was mortified and I had long hair. My mom cut my hair shorter and had to painstakingly pick out everything after shampooing my head...it was awful. (My little sister brought them home)

I hate hate them too!! Thankfully their hair isn't that long. Shoulder length. Mine is to my waist so I'm worried about that :/

They have a whole product line of prevention and cure. No idea about whole foods

Quoting babybuddafly:

I read putting rosemary twigs under the pillow helped. I'm goingto look for that shampoo. I wonder if they have it at whole foods??




Quoting weezer_cookie:

There was an outbreak at my DD school, so she now has Fairy Tales Rosemary Repel shampoo. I bought it on amazon. It is a bit spendy but I'm paranoid she will get lice from the school. So far so good!
