5 Must Have Products To Soothe Your Sick Baby Naturally

There is nothing worse as a parent then seeing your little baby coming down with a cold or worse the flu. There little bodies become hot, their noses drip and your previously smiling bundle of joy is now miserable. Whether it be their 1st or 5th cold it’s never easy. There is not much more advice from medical professionals other then to “let them ride it out” and “make sure they get plenty of fluids and rest” so it’s easy to feel helpless. 
After my babies first cold I scoured pharmacies searching for products that were age appropriate and effective. I was left feeling extremely disappointed as all there was to offer was liquid vitamins and minerals. I then turned to the internet & health food stores and after much trial and error, I put together the perfect baby cold and flu kit that I have on hand at home ready to use for whenever my little bubba gets sick. I have listed my favourite products first but these are all amazing and I believe they all work together in helping relieve my little ones cold and flu symptoms as well as speeding up her recovery. 

Product 1. Brauer Baby Saline Nasal Spray and Aspirator.

I honestly do not know what I would do without this product and that is why it is number one! When you babies nose is blocked and their struggling to breathe, especially if they have a dummy or are to little to know how to breathe through their mouths yet. This product instantly clears there nose with literally just salt and water. The design of the product sits perfectly outside your babies nose and when you pull down it sprays a fine mist into the nostril, loosening up the mucous. The loose mucous can then be sucked out with the aspirator or if your babies like mine the spray makes them sneeze and dislodge the mucous on their own.


Product 2. Winter Rescue Remedy Essential Oil (3 months+)
I frequently use of essential oils on myself when I’m sick. I find that they unblock my nose and take the edge off that dry irritating cough that can keep you awake all night. I highly recommend this essential oil blend for your little ones as it is 100% organic and pure. The blend is also gentle as it contains mild essential oils Peppermint, Eucalyptus & Lavender traditionally used in herbal medicine to relieve coughs and the symptoms of colds as well as a support a restful nights sleep. I personally find that my baby falls asleep much quicker than usual when I have this oil blend on.

Product 3. Lucas’s Special Rocks
We all know that soaking in a hot bath with Epsom salts can soothe sore muscles but what most people don’t know is that they also promote a restful night’s sleep whilst also supplying your body with much needed magnesium. Lucas’s Special Rocks are safe for all ages and is 100% food grade with no impurities. Which is great if you have a baby like mine who likes to blow bubbles and drink the bath water. Another benefit of Epsom salts is that they detoxify and support your bodies natural healing process which makes it perfect for a baby trying to fight off the winter bugs.


Product 4. Brauer Chest rub 3 months+
Next is a good old fashion chest rub. Unlike conventional chest rubs which contain petroleum and other chemicals, the one from Brauer is made from all-natural ingredients. Shea butter and bees wax makes a perfect gentle moisturising base for and the essential oils Peppermint, Eucalyptus & Lavender are traditionally used in herbal medicine to relieve coughs and the symptoms of colds.

Product 5. Oil Garden Baby Relax Bath Oil.
Lucky last I use the baby relax bath oil as an additional sleep aid. I add this product to my babies bath along with the Lucas’s Special Rocks to make sure my little one is extra sleepy come bed time. It contains essential oils such as chamomile and lavender known to promote a restful nights sleep and it leaves your babies skin feeling soft and nourished.
