Baby Food - Prevent Sickness?

When your baby comes down with a cough, you want to do whatever you can to make her more comfortable. However, you keep in mind of all those added chemicals and preservatives in the over the counter medication aisle. What's more, recent studies have shown that cough syrups are worthless and the sugar they contain may even prolong illness.

I do have a tip I can share with you, regarding this example, you can always try to solve these problems organically. If your baby seems congested, take her in the bathroom and run a hot shower.

Putting your baby in a warm (not hot) bath can have the same effect. The positive effects can be multiplied if you apply a natural oil such as sage or thyme.

If your baby has a persistent cough, perhaps it is the cold ac, you may want to try to keep your baby a little warmer and/or keep the thermostat a few degrees warmer. Some resources online have many great advice on babies.

Another great trick I have learned when a child has a sore throat, is to make a naturaly and organic tea. The warm herbal tea will help clear mucus out of your baby's lungs. Before providing your new born with tea, make sure you check with your pediatrician, to see the appropiate age to give tea to babies. You can help prevent your babies from becoming sick by being proactive, and feeding on the best baby food.
