TAKE CONTROL: NUTRITION BASED CURES FOR COMMON BABY AILMENTS

Posted in Pregnancy

So the delicious bundle has arrived and they’re latching and feeding well, but suddenly something goes WRONG! AAAAAAH! ... What’s happened and what can you do about it?

If your wee one starts suffering from any of these common baby ailments try giving one of these fantastic nutrition-based remedies a go. Of course, it’s always a good idea to seek advice from your healthcare professional too.

Eczema

If your baby is suffering from eczema you should remove all dairy from your diet. Within six weeks your baby should be clear, or at least dramatically better off.

Gassiness

This is when you can play around a bit with your diet. Try removing one of the big allergens – such as wheat, dairy, unfermented soy, and potato. If you’ve already done so, see if it’s any raw cruciferous vegetables causing the issue. I suggest you remove raw cabbage, broccoli, cauli and brussels sprouts. 

Sleeping issues during the day

Are you having any/too much caffeine? Try to cut down your caffeine intake, or cut it out completely, and see what happens.

Grumpiness/fussiness/bad temper in the mornings

Your baby’s bad mood in the morning could be a result of you having a little alcohol at night. See what happens if you cut out alcohol completely.

Refusing milk

Have you eaten garlic recently? Some newborns simply dislike the flavor! Try to remove any garlic from your diet for a few days and see if they’re better on the breast.
