My cats have gotten fleas quite badly. I gave them front-line on the weekend. Is there any non poisinous products that I can use to treat bedding and sofas as I have a 7 month old child and do not want to use posions?

There are indeed environmental fogger products available from your veterinarian. All bedding should be washed and the area vacuum cleaned. Follow the instructions of the fogger carefully to avoid problems, especially the time that the building should be vacated after using the product.
