7 Home Remedies That Soothe

7 SECRET HOME REMEDIES WHEN YOUR CHILD IS SICK OR IN PAIN*

1. The B.R.A.T. for diarrhea. It stands for- Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, Toast.

2. BLACK LICORICE will cure their constipation nine times out of ten!

3. The chemical reaction between baking soda and vinegar creates a cooling effect that will soothe your child’s minor burns. Just pour equal amounts of the ingredients into a bowl to bathe your child’s hand till the burning stops.

4. For an earache, use a hot pack big enough so they can lay their head down to relieve the ache.

5. For a headache, before you go for the drugs try these three things: Give them a big drink of water. Rub their head/neck making sure to work out the knots. There is a pressure point between your thumb and pointer finger.

6. For teething take a wash cloth, wet the center with a little water, spread on a Tbl of apple sauce, roll it up, then freeze it. Babies love this b/c it’s sweet, chewy, & cold so it numbs their gums!

7. When their throat is killing them, make them “Grandmas Top Secret Lemon Honey Drink.” Heat 1 cup water, add 1 Tbsp lemon juice, and 1 1/2-Tbsp honey (never give honey to kiddos under 1 year).
