Keep the pests from infecting — or re-infecting — your baby by taking a few precautions:

• Clean your baby's nails with a scrub brush, and keep them short to prevent eggs from becoming trapped underneath.
• Bathe him when he wakes up to help eliminate the eggs.
• Open bedroom curtains and blinds during the day. (Pinworm eggs are sensitive to sunlight.)
• Wash your hands every time you change your baby's diaper.

Remember, many children get pinworms. As with lice, the condition is not an indication of poor parenting or lack of cleanliness.
