I sprayed vinegar all around the baseboards and don't know what other non-toxic, kid-safe remedies there are. Also, what would be good to put on her bites? I tried coconut oil, but that really doesn't seem to do much. Thanks in advance.
Are you sure they're ants? Does the crib mattress have "vents"? Is it possible something is living in the mattress, bedbugs are very sneaky and if you don't have a huge infestation you might not notice. Other bugs as well, the stitching on the seam doesn't need to be that big for bugs to slip under there back home. Maybe try wrapping the mattress with practice wrap or a mattress cover and see if that helps.
