Just realised DS2 has worms and so do I.

Only problem DS3 is 5wks old and I am breast feeding. Is there anything I can take???

Lucky you grin (been there, had that!)

I think Vermox is ok when bf but I'd give the Breastfeeding Network drug line a call - 0844 412 4665 - or check their website as they sometimes have drug fact sheets.

Saw the GP after much checking of bks by him and the wonder of google by me. It would appear that vermox is ok to take. DS3 sleeps for a good 5-7hrs at night so will take it after his last feed and most of it will be gone by the time he next feeds.

Good luck. Wash all your bedding and towels the day after you've taken the meds, good hygiene and you should be fine.
