best to ask the vet, but they are very young to be getting lice, do u use straw? that tends to make them itchy, an being hollow can hold lice/mites.
i have never come across that with mine yet, but would be best to ask the vet for something suitable for such young kids, an also suitable for mum while feeding kids.
only other thing is fine flea comb iam afraid.
