    You need to bath the pups using dish soap,rinse thoroughly and go through them with a flea comb,wash all bedding and treat mum with whatever you use ,hopefully it's just a random flea that has got in from the grass,clothing as I'm sure you have looked after mum very well ,kareb

    I'm hoping it was just a random flea that mom brought in. @JAKEISGREAT and @karenben gave some good advice. I would use the Dawn dish soap on the mom and just watch the pups for a few days to make sure they don't have anymore. If you do see more then you can bath the pups in it but don't make it too strong.
