Quick Product Recommendation For Moms With Infants Or Toddlers
For any of you mom's out there that have infants and toddlers that suffer from colic, sleep disturbances, hyperactivity, or just general kid hyperness (I think I just invented a new word!) I highly HIGHLY recommend this product. At another time I may share a recipe for making your own version of these drops, but this brand has been the closest thing to the homemade version I used for years, and sometimes you just don't feel like making something yourself and just want to be able to grab something that is ready to use!
These drops are recommended for children 1 yr and older (I have some other tricks for the younger guys) and they really do work wonders on calming the little guys down, or helping with upset stomach. Chamomile is very calming and relaxing as well as being very soothing to the digestive system. These drops also contain Fennel, Catnip and a few other calming herbs as well.
Sometimes kids just get worked up, either from fun or because they are upset and it doesn't take much for things to spiral out of control. My son gets these drops almost every night a few minutes before bed to help him relax and settle down. The glycerine and fennel make the drops sweet and pleasant to the taste buds which makes it a breeze to get kids to take them. My almost two year old requests them, and if he is in pain or upset as soon as he sees the drops he settles down cause he knows they will help. He had pretty severe night terrors for a while when he was about one, and these really helped in the middle of the night to stop the fitful sleep. He doesn't even have to be awake for me to give them to him. I put the dropper in his mouth and he starts sucking cause he has taken these, or something similar since he was born.
If your kid struggles with hyperactivity, or bed time is a struggle every night I HIGHLY recommend these drops. I don't sell them, but you can check them out on amazon via the link below. They have just been such a great tool for me, especially on nights where mommy is exhausted and the little guy does not want to settle down, I had to share them with you!
Even if you don't have any regular issues with your kiddos just having them on hand for those once in a while situations might be very helpful!
