Natural remedies are wonderful for babies and toddlers!
In my home, natural remedies including herbs, homeopathy, and essential oils are what I’ve used for over a decade to take care of my family. It can be confusing at first to know what to do when your child isn’t feeling well, so Erin from Eat Real, Stay Sane has put together some info on remedies that can help.
When I was a new mom, I worried about every little sniffle and cough (most moms do right?) When Little Man was 9 months old, he had his first cold and developed a fever of 103. The fever had me worried, so I took him to his pediatrician.
The pediatrician told me he had a cold (DUH) and an ear infection. Poor kid! Of course the pediatrician prescribed me some antibiotics and thought I was crazy when I suggested we try to go a more natural route. The pediatrician also told me that there was nothing I could give him or really do to help him sleep or help with his congestion.
He was an utterly useless pediatrician and long story short, I never went back.
In fact, when my little man is sick now, I never take him to the pediatrician. I take him to our family chiropractor and master herbalist. I’ve received much better care and support with holistic doctors. We love holistic doctors at our house!
I’ve also turned into a wait and see kind of mom when Little Man gets the sniffles, instead of sprinting over to the pediatrician’s office demanding an appointment right away (okay I wasn’t that bad). Most of the time, the sniffles go away within a day or two, especially when I start pumping him full of immune boosting syrup.
I want to share with you how I help my little one feel better the all-natural way when he has a cold. You don’t have to just let them suffer or give them unnecessary drugs like my pediatrician seemed to think.
Now, just to let you know, I do buy some stuff from the store that isn’t 100% perfect but they are very close.
