SO many kids have pinworms and the parents are unaware of it. It is extremely common.
That said ( so you would not feel so alone ) I use grapefruit seed extract and lots of raw garlic for my older 2 and have never needed to give the baby anything -he is
5 months ol but I have also NOT seen any worms in his poops.
I would not worry about the baby unless you see worms there. natural remedies can be safely taken by you and transfered thru your breastmilk(assuming you bf) and doing this may help you feel better- feel like you are actively doing something for the baby.
good luck-
maria

IMHO< THE best thing i havE SEEN IS: Give everybody in the family a dose of Homeopathic Cina. Try to get 30c. You can get it at your healthfood store or from 1-800-Dolisos. Take it and give it to the baby 3 times a day.

Works wonders immediately, with NO SIDE EFFECTS!!!!!
