As I mentioned a few posts back, I’m revamping and editing some of my older medical advice posts and updating everything. This is another post from 2011! Can’t believe I’ve been blogging for over 7 years! I hope you find this helpful or file it away for future reference!
Do you know any kids who have never had an earache or infection? This seems to be a rite of passage for young kids. Unfortunately it is assumed that we need to rush our kids to the Dr as soon as possible so that we can get that antibiotic that is necessary to rid the infection. We fear that our child might have permanent hearing loss or a ruptured eardrum if we don’t act quickly enough. Continue reading “Ear Ache”
In case you haven’t noticed! This post is to announce a new page on the blog! An you can find it just below the blog title. Other pages include Home, About Me and Recipes.
I’ve had this in mind for a long time, but have been slow on getting it put together. So even though it isn’t completed, I’ve started it and am making it live so that it can be used even in part! Now it will be much easier for returning peeps to be able to find the medical advice post they were looking for… or for you to refer others to the site for advice! Continue reading “Announcement: New Page!”
Eczema… oh how I really really dislike that word! The photo with this post is of Xanthie’s legs about two years ago. It hurts me to look at that photo and remember how much pain she was in. That was an exceptionally bad breakout, but the story of her life nonetheless. Continue reading “Eczema”
Since this post in June 2013 I’ve added two more babies to the crew! I don’t have a ton of new things to add, but I had a few minor changes to make. And I wanted to repost is for those who hadn’t seen the original post! I hope it’s helpful! Continue reading “Diaper Rash Revisited”
Stomach Aches revisited
This post was originally written in late 2011. As I was reviewing some of the older information on my blog I realized it needed some changing and I had more information and help to offer. I’ve grown a lot in my holistic treatment of “common” childhood illnesses and discomforts. So let me re-address this topic and hopefully provide more help! Continue reading “Stomach Aches”
Here is another medical post I’ve been wanting to update. The original was in September 2013, and since I’ve been expanding my knowledge of homeopathics, essential oils and have been working in the birth world, I feel like I have much to add… so read on and hopefully you will find this info helpful!
So of course I had to jinx myself and mention plugged ducts and mastitis in my post on breastfeeding. All had been going well until a week ago. Continue reading “Plugged ducts and Mastitis”
I originally wrote this post back in 2012. Posts that old tend to get lost in the archives or forgotten about by long time readers, or new readers have never seen them. So I plan on bring back a few old posts that I think are worth looking at again. AND… I’ve grown over the last 6 years in medical knowledge and homeopathic and natural options. Some of these medical advice posts are still great, but I certainly have more to add, so read on! Continue reading “Constipation in Kids Revisited”
I don’t remember ever getting this as a kid or any friends getting this, and yet now I feel like this has been a rite of passage for my kids generation. All of my children have had it and it continues to go around in our circles! Continue reading “Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease”
Hopefully spring is here and winter sickness and sniffles are on their way out! So maybe this post should be held until fall… but then, I thought… sometimes seasonal allergies can linger and progress into a sinus infection. So I figured I’d better arm you now before the seasonal allergy season starts, so that you can know what to do to help ward off an infection! Continue reading “Sinus Infection”
It’s been a while since I’ve had one of these infections. My daughter however, gets them way too often. She is a ‘picker’ and is always pulling off scabs, peeling fingernails and the list could go on! Continue reading “Paronychia”
