Our children’s first experiences with food are formative ones. They lay the foundation for a lifetime of eating habits––good or bad. This is why avoiding artificial colors and flavors for young children is a good idea.
Little bodies are growing and changing every day, which is why what we feed our children is so important. Nutrient-dense organic food isn’t just a building block for strong muscles and bright minds––what we feed our kids now lays the foundation for their future eating habits.
If you have an especially fussy baby, you’ve probably spent a lot of time trying to figure out what causes colic. We think if we can find the root cause of the problem, we can solve it and make our babies feel better. Generations of mamas know that when it comes to colic, it’s never that easy. Despite all the advances in modern medicine, doctors still can’t pinpoint the exact causes of colic.
As parents, we all want the very best for our children. This is especially true when it comes to what we feed our little ones. Many parents seek out certified organic foods for their children; with the harmful pesticides used in traditional agriculture, it’s easy to understand why! But just because a product doesn’t have organic certification doesn’t mean it’s not organic.
Many parents and newborns suffer from the agony that comes with a baby who has colic. Luckily, Dr. Simon has developed an all-natural remedy that includes bay leaves, chamomile, and fennel infused into a tea to help calm not only the child but moms and dads as well.
Crying is normal for babies, as it is the only way they have to express their needs. Yet roughly 15 to 25 percent of infants cry excessively with no apparent cause. Colic is generally diagnosed by the “rule of threes”: crying bouts start at around 3 weeks of age and last for 3 or more hours per day, 3 or more days per week, for more than 3 weeks in a row. Though it is little consolation to tired and frustrated parents, colic usually subsides by 3 or 4 months of age. Here is what you need to know about this common condition.
Any parent who has experienced the turmoil of a baby with colic knows true despair and frustration. You want to help them, but nothing seems to work. They scream and cry, and you sob because nothing seems to help. No one sleeps, and you just try to make it through the agony together as best you can. If you were lucky enough to never have to witness this situation, you most likely have someone close to you who has suffered many sleepless nights because of this problem. Luckily there are many natural remedies that can be very helpful in relieving your colicky baby. One major natural colic remedy and ingredient in Dr. Simon’s remedy is fennel tea.
For generations, chamomile flowers have been dried and steeped to create a tea that has been known to relieve a multitude of ailments. The more potent the tea, the stronger the effect. Although sometimes discredited as an “old wives tale” or folk remedy, the healing properties of chamomile tea speak for themselves. A helpful supplement, it is a regular go-to for mild pain and digestive issues, as well as its calming effects as a natural sleep aid making it an important natural colic relief ingredient in Dr. Simon’s Remedy.
