Is now a good time to mention Nits?

Because our brand new book How to Blitz Nits and Other Nasties, published by Bloomsbury, is out now!

It’s a pocket guide on how to defeat ten common childhood nasties, from the dreaded nits <scratch>, to threadworm <shudder> to how best to extract foreign objects <determinedface>, written by our very own @IonaMumsnet and based on the wisdom of brilliant Mumsnetters, so thank you flowers.

You can buy a copy over on Amazon or visit the Bloomsbury website for a 35% discount for Mumsnetters - just enter the code NITS at the checkout and do let us know what you think.

Sounds like the new MNHQ staff guide.
Lighthearted.

Just out of interest, do users get told when their quotes are used in print?

SecretNutellaFix Fri 25-Aug-17 17:43:36

From remembering previous publications, I don't believe they do peace

Is it just quotes from here? Seems a bit expensive if so or is there more to it?

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 25-Aug-17 18:15:31

Surely people just google these things now?

I think it will be largely quotes, because this is part of the blurb describing Mumsnet

"Its members are highly engaged, loyal, active and passionate about the site."

Don't forget to click on the ads folks.

Not a happy bunny. All threads that contain nits or worms or any such irritatant should be preceeded by a scratch warning.

I can't be the only one that subconciously starts scratching at the simple suggestion of nits.

SoNouveau Fri 25-Aug-17 18:48:45

Does it work on c**kroaches?

insancerre Fri 25-Aug-17 18:56:09

Do we get royalties if our quotes are used?

FAKE NEWS grin

MN owns everything you post. (See the TS and C's). So presumably no royalties sad

Oh the timing of this thread grin

FruBayerischOla Fri 25-Aug-17 19:19:54

I agree, Cote!

Bizarre hmm

No, you're not. But at least nits make you scratch your head. Just be glad it's not threadworms stickied in the title.

Lighthearted suggestion to the nasties list? grin
