Motherhood is an amazing thing and it carries so much beauty with it, but lets be honest its also very hard. No parent ever wants to have a sick child, because when they hurt you hurt. I wish that when I had my girls I followed all the blogs and had a bunch of baby books to give me the answers but I just didn’t. I listened to older women in my family and used remedies that have been passed down for years which beats any parenting book if you ask me! I’m going to share a few of my favorites and I can almost guarantee that these will work wonders for your baby.
Baby acne drives most mothers crazy and its the worst because obvisoly you cant use clean and clear on your newborns skin. Breast milk worked wonders for me. At night I submerge a cotton ball in a little breast milk and spread it wherever the acne is and let it sit overnight. In the morning I wash it off with warm water. The acne should clear within deals.
Cradle cap is pretty much crusty white or yellow scales on the top of babies head. Craddle cap is totally normal just a little annoying especially for new mothers. I would recommend using a drop of baby oil to loosen the scales and a fine tooth comb to remove from them from the babis head.
If your baby wont poop give them a small bottle of warm water with a drop of kayro corn syrup. I only did this when leah was around 2 months old and it complelty cured her constipation!
Reently my toddler has been suffering from cold sores. Organic apple cider vinegar with the mother has worked wonders on her coldsore. Take a paper towel or cotton ball submerege it in diluted organic ACV and place it on the cold sores for a few minutes and do this throughout the day. This helps dry out the cold sore and evently remove it.
I’m definetly not a doctor, just a mother sharing some tips to help other mothers sleep better. Before doing any of these natural remedies always consult with you doctor if you feel unseasy about doing these on your child. I would love to hear some ways that you use natural remedies on your child.
