This shiny new year? So far it’s brought us hard truths and hefty amounts of sickness.
We’re wading through the best ways we know how. A big part of the healing and regeneration process for my family, for my little ones — are the more natural-based treatments and routines we follow.
We lean heavily towards living a green life in general; from the food we eat, to the products we buy and the way in which we take care of our health.
The roundup below has come from years of research, application and success. Couple these tried and true techniques / remedies with fellow Toddler blogger Casey’s list of how to deal with toddler vomit and you’ll be set. (Well, as much as one can be in a midst of toddler-sick). She’s a seasoned pro, too. Aren’t we all?
Perhaps you’re just entering into the age of toddler-hood with your little one, or you’re looking to switch to a natural approach when it comes to caring for your child. Maybe you don’t have time for all the research.
Well I do. It’s my job. Which I think is pretty cool; given that all of the time I spend researching - transcends into my own life in how I parent my kids or to help me make decisions on what products I’m going to buy.
When I’m looking to find a common thread in the on-line community with other mothers and fathers, discover and bond with other parents who need support, need to talk things out and get new ideas and a fresh perspective, this is where I come. Even if they are sharing in my sorrow, from taking care of a house full of sick, or managing a raging toddler – it truly does take a village, this parenting thing. A theory of which I firmly DO prescribe to.
I can guarantee you that cold and flu season will be made much more tolerable if you administer even a few of these things. It’s quite simple really, the key to helping a little one get through a nasty cold and/or flu is nutrition in one way or another. I’ve made it as simple as possible, but the truth of the matter is that having sick kids ain’t easy. There is no short-cut or magical wand that I can offer you to make that go away. What I can offer you are resources and truth.
“Everything on earth as a purpose, every disease an herb to cure it, and every person a mission.
This is the Indian theory of existence.”
