Flea bites can be very itchy. You will want to be putting a steroid cream on the bites themselves to stop the itching. Hydrocortisone often works well. A gentle oatmeal bath may be good as well. If baby is really uncomfortable, talk to your doctor about what to use. There are prescriptions you can get that may be better.

The biggest thing you will need to do though is to get rid of the fleas. There are many things you can do but you have to ensure they are completely gone from the furniture, carpet, rugs, etc. Fleas can multiply pretty quickly so get a handle on it so that the bites don't continue.
