Your vet is going to be your friend here, crazy, and they absolutely have to be tackled. They're pretty dangerous to kittens.

Speak to the vet first thing. Most chemical flea treatments can't be used on very young kittens so you're likely going to have to use mainly some manual methods with a flea comb. You'll also have to treat Mom and the environment and the vet will advise on what is safe for a lactating female. (And supply treatments for the house.)

Ta cozie I spoke to the vet & have an appointment for tomorrow , they said they will give me a prescription for the frontline spray

Good - and they'll give you advice on use. Remember to get stuff for Mum and the room as well.

(Aren't you glad she only had 3 now!)
