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 

Are Vaccine Jabs Toxic ?


Week 8 is here, and I am taking baby K to the GP for the routine eight-week check.
When booking the appointment, I was told that straight after the GP check, baby would need to go to the nurse for her first set of immunisations.  There is no choice in the matter; it is compulsory for babies to get their immunisations.

However, my worry is that she is so small how will her little body be able to deal with all these injections and toxic material injected into her?  I am left wondering,pexels-photo-325690.jpeg how do we know that these injections are safe and can their little bodies cope with all this toxic matter at such a young and vulnerable age?  Do many people question this or do they just accept this is the norm because we are told that it is essential for the baby to have these vaccinations ?

I ended up talking to so many people who did not allow their children to have vaccinations, they all reported that their children have never become ill with these ailments or any ailments which are familiar to children.  In fact, a homeopath I know told me that the best immunity for the baby is breastfeeding.  I recall this being discussed at the NCT class and the hospital that breastfeeding, if you can manage it is the best for baby.

So I asked myself, is it not better to support a baby’s immune system naturally by breastfeeding, all babies know instinctively where to go for mother’s milk, and that’s the only thing babies want once they are born.

As it so happens in nature, mothers milk is the best for supporting baby’s immune system, as it contains all of the mother’s antibodies and nutrients from breast milk, the baby naturally strengthens their immune system.
