Here is a great article on one of my favorite sites, Safbaby.com.Time to get comfortable using alternative methods to help you Baby or Child when they are in discomfort. Wouldn't it be nice to have your own alternative medicine cabinet? I know my husband and I have really come to like Chamomile. We also found some great salve called Healing Salve (Herbally Grounded, Las Vegas) which has Plantain, Comfrey, Olive Oil and Bees Wax. No worries if your little one ingests a little either. We use this salve on diaper rashes, scratches, even when we have a "boo boo."
For all you out there who would like to have more an alternative approach to helping your child through a stuffy nose, colic, teething and even getting a splinter out, here is a great article with a great book recommendation for you and your babysitter! Click here
