When it comes to choosing medicine for baby, this mama can’t be too careful! We’ve only had two fevers so far, and have given baby instant relief from both withYoung Living’s Peppermint Essential Oil. One drop peppermint mixed with raw, organic coconut oil along the spine works like a charm. I know many mamas who swear by Tylenol, and I’m glad it works for them, but do they really know what they’re putting in baby’s body? The dyes and high fructose corn syrup are enough for me to stay far away!
Here are the Side Effects of just the first three ingredients in Children’s Tylenol:
- Acetaminophen – liver damage
- Anhydrous citric acid – respiratory irritation
- Butylparaben – developmental disorders, dysfunction of the immune system, learning problems as well as reproductive disorders
Sound like something you want to pump in baby’s body every four hours? Yeah, me neither! This family will stick with good ol natural Peppermint!
What about YOU? What’s your fever reducer go-to?
