Baby Blues / Teething

Oh no we are not settling, week 15 and teething is really beginning to set in now, the dribbling is constant and baby K is chewing on almost everything.  I noticed she has been even more clingy and wanting constant attention from me this week.IMG_2242  Getting her off to sleep in the evening has been challenging but luckily she is almost sleeping through the night, with just one short wake for nappy change and quick feed.  Yesterday she slept almost all throughout the day.  Her mood has been really low and she just wants to be held all the time when she is awake.  Nothing seems to settle her until she finally falls asleep, until then she is constantly clingy.

The only thing that seems to comfort her is rubbing  the soles of her feet gently as much as I can and this has the effect of comforting her.  She is more wanting to breastfeed during the day and not only on waking and before her night time sleep, as has been her usual routine for the last few weeks.  So rubbing up and down the reflex zones on the soles of her feet and breastfeeding seem to be doing the trick in keeping her calm and content during this phase of initial teething.  She is not so keen on the organic formula milk at the moment and choosing breastfeeding instead !

No thank you, only breastfeeding will do 

Happy Insides ! Healthy and Calm Happy Babies !

I find myself asking why is being organic good for babies and good to support their developing immune systems. How do we achieve happy insides and a healthy and calm happy baby?

How do we best prevent allergies and common childhood ailments; and how best to bring about Happy Insides! Happy Babies!

It makes sense to me that the less toxic material we expose our babies too, the better chance they have to be healthier. All toxic matter derived either from internal mental stress and combustion, or external environmental exposure does result in the baby’s immune system having to work harder to expel this from the body. If the baby does not manage to expel this toxic material completely, then it results in physical symptoms in the body. For example, allergies such as the most commonly know skin disorders, are frequently seen in children these days.

In my situation living in London, I have no immediate control of the environmental factors of being exposed to the high levels of toxic pollution, bar from moving out of London.  In the meantime, what do I do to try and achieve the best for baby K with what is in my control. I decided to do my level best to insure that everything that goes inside and on the outside of baby K, is in as pure and natural state as I can manage. The purer, the less toxic, means baby K does not have to overwork her immune system to expel the toxic material from her body.  I can wholeheartedly say to myself that this has been a contributing factor in providing  a more sustainable environment for a healthy and calm baby K.

 

” That which we put inside baby reflects on the outside and that which we put on the outside of baby reflects on the inside ”

Just now watching her sleep is so peaceful, let’s continue giving her the best that nature has to offer.
