    How about a post on fevers–ways to naturally reduce them. When you should worry/see a doctor? What to do for ear infections. Also best sunscreens to use? Just some questions I had that I would love to see some answers all in one place. :-) Thanks for this page; it is awesome!!

    • Bridget says:

      Natural way to reduce fever that works really well, especially at bedtime- wet a pair of socks, wring then out and put on baby’s feet, then cover with a pair of dry socks and bundle up. I use it on my 5 month old and 2 1/2 year old and both have their fevers down right away.

        We love using peppermint and lavender essential oils. We re-apply every 15 on feet and spine.

    My daughter has her one year check up next week and I can’t find information on why to not get hepatitis A vaccine. I was wondering if anyone has any information on it. Thank you!

    • If you ask this on our facebook page you will get a lot of answers – start by reading the vaccine inserts provided by the manufactures that come with each dose of vaccine. You can ask the doctor for this or you can find it online.

  5. Casey Melancon says:

    I have 2 toddlers and a baby. All 3 have eczema but my middle child seems to have worst. Starting to wonder if her diet has anything to do with it. Looking for any help on how to manage this with all of them. If our family needs to start changing things then why not start with what we put in our bodies:)

    • Raising Natural Kids says:

      If you ask this on our facebook page you will get a lot of replies and quickly… eczema is the result of the body not being able to tolerate something in the diet (usually) most of the times wheat or dairy… it will take eliminating one or 2 of these things for about 3 weeks before you notice a difference… also use only a natural laundry detergent…

  6. Casey Melancon says:

    What can I replace her dairy milk with?

    Please re-post this on fb from anonymous. Thank you.
    My question is related to muscle/nerve damage in neck. I had all tests done, ultrasound to check for if the vessels are ok, barium swollow, CT scan and head MRI. Head MRI showed slight spots for MS but result was Normal. Not too sure what that means, but let me give a nit of a background. I had shaking in my neck, breathing difficulty & heaviness, which seems to be brought up by stress & physical work, especially when lifting/feeding baby. I also don’t get a full night sleep. Lately i am getting a lot of spasms in neck, shoulders including occassional tingling, but i noticed this is brought up by how much and how confortable i sleep etc. I did find out months ago that i was vitamin D deficient. I started taking 4000 iu a day and was just re-tested a day ago and am awaiting results. My magnesium & vit B levels are normal. I do still take B complex, D, kelp, fish oil. Is there anything anyone cpuld suggest that might help me for severe muscle weakness & spasms esp for my neck. It’s really devastating to have those spasms etc in such a sensitive area. Sorry for lenghty message & TIA!

    • sorry Anette – you need to ask this on the FB page – you can message us so no one will see – I am back to work and no longer reposting at this time, but we have 6 admins on the facebook page helping with that – they don’t have access to the comment here. Good luck!

    Hi, can you pls post anon! I had a L/scope done last month to 9 why I can’t fall pregnant! I already have 1 child! With the procedure dr made a few holes in the ovaries to make ovulation more promising, also he put me on fertomid! Last night I had pain on both sides of ovaries!

    I’m in need of some advice about traveling with a 10 month old who I make formula for. I will be going to the Caribbean where it will be almost impossible to make formula for her and I’m wondering what my options are with feeding her. Shes a good eater when i comes to solids, but she likes her bottle before naps and bed time. Not really crazy about buying formula but I think that might be my only option, what are the best ones I can buy?
