The first of my WWYD venting/frustrations of life as a solo mama of two and uni student.
Nits. My dd is at school so she's always got them. I've got them. Even the poor baby had them at one point! Here is my dilemma:
Everyone talks about COMBING THE NITS OUT being the only real solution. Unfortunately nobody ever talks about how to do this with a highly demanding toddler and full on nighttime study schedule. Not for the time-poor but I bit the bullet and got the most expensive comb I could find. But wtf, am I the only person who can't use one of these things? They rip out your hair and no amount of wiping will get the little eggs out from between the skinny prongs. I am trying to use it on my own hair too. Both dd and I have pretty "easy" hair to comb. But still, I'm sure the eggs are not coming out. Plus, by the time the rambunctious tot is asleep at night we are both so damn tired and can barely stand up!
How do I manage this problem? Tbh I'm actually in awe that with all the inventions that have taken place up until today nobody has thought to invent a hair product that actually KILLS THE NITS. I'd seriously rather use a product on my hair every week until I break the cycle than spend minutes or possibly hours of my oh-so-precious time to comb through hair, only to end up missing most of the eggs anyway 😞
So please help me, other time-poor single mamas dealing with nits with babies on your hip - HOW HOW HOW do you do it?!?!
