// If we have head lice should I bag my children’s stuffed animals?

Head lice can live for up to 48 hours off the head before they need a blood meal from someone’s scalp. If your child has a favourite toy they sleep with or just carry around then it is feasible that a louse could crawl off and sit on the stuffed toy. Hoover the toys or put them in a black plastic bag and keep them there until you have combed out your child.
