Soothing and relaxing baby
It was heartbreaking to hear a young mother talk about her experience with her ‘sickly’ baby boy and the hours spent trying to sooth him and trips made to the hospital.
It turned out that the baby was in a lot of pain due an intolerance.
Every mother wants a healthy, happy and thriving baby but for many instead they have a baby that is fretful, crying all the time, screaming in some cases and in distress not knowing why the baby is suffering.
I am certainly not a medical expert so every mother should get advice from a GP and always seek a second opinion if unsure, but essential oils can certainly help boost the immune system and provide comfort for babies, and parents.
