Natural Remedies for Baby Colds: Tips from the Tribe

You’ve probably heard me talk about my Mama Tribe. The tribe consists of a few awesome Mamas who all gave birth around the same time as I did. I’m pretty sure they were sent by God as evidence of his love for me. Seriously, I don’t know what I would do without these lovely ladies! For example, this week, when Luca came down with his first cold, who did I turn to for advice? The Mama Tribe. They all had wonderful advice (and empathy!). Here’s what they had to say….

 Lindy: That’s such a bummer Jaclyn! Remember, mama makes the best medicine – nurse, nurse, nurse! Also try running a humidifier. Sending lots of positive thoughts your way!
 Laura: Poor boo, like I said in your other post, if it gets bad sleep sitting propped up with him in your moby so you can sleep as well with out “holding” him and it will help his nose drain. There really isnt much you can do when they are so little. LIke Lindy said nurse nurse nurse. Use a humidifier or steamy bathroom and saline and suction on his nose. Hylands makes tiny cold tablets and I used my essential oils with Addie and she was on the mend in a very short amount of time.
 Natalie: I echo Lindy’s suggestions, use the nose Frieda and simply saline spray if the congestion is really bad. So sorry he’s sick =(
 Rebecca: Jaclyn, I can bring you some Breathe oil to try tomorrow morning. I think it makes a world of difference. (*She did, and it made a HUGE difference!)
 Lindsey: Make sure you are eating vitamin rich foods. Vitamin C! That’ll pass through your milk.
See? Isn’t having a Mama Tribe the best?? Now, go get one. =)
* The essential oils (brought to you by doTerra) that saved the day were:
Immune BlendOnGuard (Cinnamon, Clove bud, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Wild Orange), oregano, Meleluca, and lemon oil (all diluted in coconut oil).
Breathe Blend aka Crunchy Mama’s Vicks Vapor Rub– Eucalyptus, Laurel leaf, Lemon, Melaleuca,
Peppermint, and Ravensara (all diluted in coconut oil).
