2 year old DS has nits. So, apparently, have I. Yuck. Have wet combed with conditioner, and will do so every 3 days for DS and every day for me. I dry combed month-old DD's hair and found nothing, but DS cuddles her a lot. I daren't use my conditioner on her - what can I use? Is there a conditioner that's ok for babies, or is dry combing enough, or will they leave her alone, or....???

I would use Aqueous cream in place of conditioner. Same sort of viscosity and no added nasties. Something like E45 would be good. Ask the pharmacist which is cleanest and tell them what it's for.
