The best home remedies for children and babies
What helps if baby’s nose is running or the butt is all sore?
What if the baby has a bangled and sore throat? This may be a sign of diathermatitis. But even if it is “only” a irritation due to wet diapers or bowel movements, a wonderful pimp for the baby is very unpleasant.
This is how you react
correctly: as often as possible, give fresh air to the baby, even when it is stimulated when the delicate baby skin comes into contact with urine and stool for a long time.
Just put your baby on a top and put it on the towel with a bare butt on a towel. If this is not the case for organizational reasons: Wrap your baby more frequently than usual, leave the buttocks “breathe” in the fresh air for a few minutes every time you change the diaper. Elderly diaper children can be quietly run for a time naked through the apartment or in summer outside. This also helps to get dry.
Chamomile tea: Let dried chamomile flowers (or simply a bag of chamomile tea) pass through a bowl of boiling water. Remove the liquid and use the cold (!) Chamomile tea to clean the Babypo (just dab, do not rub!). With older children you can make short lukewarm baths with this camomile solution.
Stirring: Even easier and very practical, because you almost always have potatoes at home: rub a raw potato and place these with two compresses (or a gauze bandage) on the irritated skin. The sequence should look like this: compress on the wound site, grated potato, compress. You can also make a wide range of quark with cool quark.
What helps in hiccups?
Your baby has hiccups and just does not stop? Do not worry, especially in infants, hiccup is quite frequent and still comes from the time of pregnancy by serving the unborn as a breathing exercise. In addition, a hiccup prevents food from entering the urethra – so you can probably observe a hiccup especially after the milk meal time. With increasing age the hiccup becomes less frequent.
This helps in hiccups:
Do not try to give your child a large glass of water to drink. Also “keeping ears”, “stopping air” and “questioning games” only help with larger children.
Tricks against baby hiccups:
> Distraction: Turn your child off, for example by playing your finger games or by looking at a picture book together. This corresponds to the later “questioning”. The child is distracted and “forgets” the hiccup.
> Peasants : After the milk-meal times, infants should make a little peas. Stroking and light tapping on the back has an effect.
> Massage: A light massage helps your child relax – this helps to stop the hiccup.
> Drinking: Let your baby drink something (water, thin fennel tea or a sip of milk)
> Breath : Blast your child easily into the face.
Heat helps sleep in babies
Sleeping problems with babies often occur when the little one is to go to bed, to make a nap there alone. The scenario usually looks like this: The baby sleeps slowly in your arms and feels wonderful, because with Mama it is so warm …
Even if it’s hard: put your baby to bed! But at the same time, make all the necessary arrangements to keep your little treasure from awakening and give it the necessary warmth in the bed.
Tricks against sleep problems:
> Hot water bottle and warming pad:
Preheat the bed with a lukewarm hot water bottle. Do not take out the hot water bottle until you put the child in bed. Another variation is a grain pillow (spelled pillow, cherry core pillow). The warming pad simply warm up briefly in the microwave and the bed is already warm. There are warm cushions also in the form of cuddly toys.
> Abdominal pain: The warmth also helps against abdominal pain and flatulence, which can be the reason for sleep problems. In addition, fennel tea is a popular home remedy for stomach pain.
> Body contact: Of course the body contact with mum or dad is ideal, but if you put the child next to you in bed, make sure that your child does not cover with a blanket so that it can also breathe freely. Also in the parents’ bed the baby should carry a sleeping bag.
It is best to let your baby fall asleep in his own bed instead of holding it on his arm. Better keep his hand when it is in his own bed. So you do not have to change its position and it does not scare you when it wakes up and wakes up in a different place when it’s asleep. This hotel is located in the city center.
Home remedies for quiet sleep
Shortly before your child is to bed, does it turn up again, is quivering and restless or wants to continue?
This will make your child quieter again:
often enough, if the evening ritual is calmer and the child slowly comes to rest. Prepare yourselves with child your every evening with Einschlafritualen on the night before:
> pajamas attract
> Ventilation & nursery Darken
> stuffed animals in bed sort
> last toileting / night diaper
read> bedtime story or Einschlaflieder
> Very important: the good- Night kiss
Security and trust are at the heart of everything
Provide the necessary confidence to your child before falling asleep by cuddling and a good-night kiss , so that she can fall asleep carefree. The intimate atmosphere is strengthened when you sings or hummers on the bed. If singing is not your thing, a sleeping CD or a music box with a recurring melody also helps. Larger children can re-wind up the expired music box.
However, herbs can also be used for sleeping problems. Give your sweetheart a fall or other drink or food with soothing effect – preferably without sugar or honey ( honey , at the earliest from the first year of life): warm milk, Fennel or melissa tea and also warm water with 1-2 teaspoons of orange blossom water (from the pharmacy) have a soothing effect. However, such a drop-in rupture only acts when the teeth are still cleaned afterwards.
For breastfeeding mothers: In the hours before the baby is supposed to sleep, you better do without stimulant drinks such as black tea, coffee and cola.
The first teeth come!
Crying, fever, whining, diarrhea … When the first milk teeth are drilled through the gums, this is usually a very painful experience for the little ones.
This helps in teething:
Relieves the toothache by making the gum less sensitive. Chewing and cooling are pain-relieving, some children also help with tooth gels and homeopathic remedies from the pharmacy.
