This treatment video by a specialist claims manual removal, including washing, is suggested for "newborn" kittens. "Newborn" would seem to suggest "one day old is included" but I just wanted to double check. Is it ok to wash and comb newborn kittens as described in the video?

Also, I've never given my cat, the mother, a bath, and since the video suggests staying away from chemicals in the vicinity of newborn kittens, I have a dilemma as to how I can get rid of the fleas on her also. Suggestions are welcome.

Do not use anything on newborn kittens or their mother while the kittens are feeding off of her!!

Are the cats indoor? then you might have a problem with the fleas..

Are they outside? Then wait until they are the appropriate age and use a anti flea treatment that you got from a pharmacist.
