Since EJ was born, i tried my best not to give her any medicine from drug stores, even it is prescribed by doctor. She should not consume any drugs before at least she is 1. There is this time, when she was 3 months old, having a very bad flu, doctor prescribed flu medicine but says: The best is not to give her unless you really have to.

As a mom, i wanted the best for my EJ. So i decided to try home remedy instead.

a. lemon: I use lemon to bath her. Cut about 3 slices of lemon, and put it into a glass of hot water. Pour it into your baby bath tub, with cold water. With natural antibacterial properties and high levels of vitamin C, lemon bath can help your baby to breath easily and as disease thrives in an acidic environment, it’s alkalizing effect also promote health.

b. Garlic: Take raw garlic, bake it in the oven, crush it  Rub it to your baby foot, put on her socks. Leave it overnight. It will helps your baby to sleep better, and reduces the chances for her to get cold.

Trust me, it works-well at least for my EJ. Lets try any home remedies for our baby first before turns to prescribed drugs. It will helps your baby to grow naturally without any influence of unnecessary drugs.

But please also note that, this is only for flu, cold and not serious symptom. Doctor advise should be followed in case of other health condition.
