Best Answer

NO! Check the package. That type of medicine can go into your bloodsteam and could potentially harm your baby. I am sure their are alternatives for lice other than the toxic chemicals you were giong to use. Again, read the package carefully. If it doesn"t say safe to use on pregnant or nursing mothers then don"t use it. There are herbs, there are different shampoos that could offer releif. Ask your pharmacist.
