Babies are the most incredible things in the world.
(In my humble opinion.)
On one hand they seem so helpless, needing us for everything they do.
But on the other hand, they are so so clever.
They don’t have all of the worry, the hesitation, the ‘what if’ thoughts that many of us adults can suffer from.
They just get on with what they need to do.
Sometimes they too need a helping hand with homeopathy though.
Whether it’s colic, constipation, teething, or many other symptoms, homeopathy can help support you and your newborn.
But how do you give a newborn baby a homeopathic remedy?
There are several ways you can do this. It’s best to try them out and find the way that works best for you and your baby.
As a parent, my personal preferred way is to take one pillule of the remedy and crush it between two teaspoons. Put a bit of the remedy dust on your finger, and gently pop it inside the baby’s cheek. Job done – one dose given.
You can also dissolve a remedy in (boiled and cooled) water and syringe it into your baby’s mouth.
Some people like to dissolve the remedy in water, and then rub a bit of this into your baby’s cheek or gums. This can also work well.
Another popular way, for breastfed babies, is for the mother to take the remedy, and so the remedy will be transferred to the baby from the mother.
In my experience this method is best suited for constitutional prescribing, when a remedy is prescribed by a homeopath for the baby for longer term issues. For acute situations one of the above methods are better suited, where possible.

However you give your baby their dose of homeopathic remedy, know that it is helping them heal from the inside out.
