    Homeopathic Remedies for Colicky Babies

    Homeopathic Remedies for Colicky Babies

    Homeopathy is a philosophy of healing that teaches “like cures like.” In other words, the illnesses can be cured by giving a tiny dose of something that–in a large dose–would actually cause the very same problem. For example, a homeopath might recommend miniscule amounts of poison ivy extract to stop an itchy rash. Some of the homeopathic treatments recommended for colic are chamomile, colocynth, magnesium phosphorica and pulsatilla. Some parents swear by them, but there is no convincing evidence of benefit....

    Baby Carriers: Ancient Wisdom Makes a Comeback

    Baby Carriers: Ancient Wisdom Makes a Comeback

    "I used to think that people with baby carriers were granola people and hippies…but now, I think women are weird if they don't use one.” Debra, mother of twins Audrey and Sophia  A final example of an old, discarded custom that has been resurrected, thanks to recent scientific studies, is the use of baby carriers and slings.

    What to Do If the 5 S's Aren't Calming Cries

    What to Do If the 5 S's Aren't Calming Cries

    Many babies need 2 or more of the 5S’s to settle a big upset. Moms from the !Kung culture in Africa use a mix of tight holding, rocking, nursing and repeating, “Uhn-uhn, uhn, uhn,” over and over. In Tanzania, moms soothe crying by cuddling their babies while pretending to grind corn (vigorously bending and straightening and humming a rough noise). And in America, parents drive around their neighborhoods – hitting every pothole and speed bump they can find – soothing...

    Why That Lullaby Isn't Soothing Your Baby

    Why That Lullaby Isn't Soothing Your Baby

    The word lullaby means “sing to sleep.” The sweet tunes of lullaby music mimic the reassuring rhythms of a mother’s pulse, about seventy beats per second. This pace is perfect for singing—and rocking—our baby as he drifts into the land of Wynken, Blynken and Nod.  However, soothing baby lullabies are often powerless to end crying frenzies. Once in meltdown mode, babies get so lost in their screams, they just can't hear us. Just as adults get “blind with rage,” babies...

    Why Sucking Makes Babies Instantly Happy

    Why Sucking Makes Babies Instantly Happy

    New babies grow so fast they need a milky meal eight to twelve times a day. Some people say they eat like “little pigs,” but piglets can’t hold a candle to our babies! Every day our little ones “snort down” three ounces of milk for every pound of their body weight. That’s like you guzzling five gallons of whole milk every day, seven days a week!  The wonderful 5th S  of the 5 S's feels extraordinary because it can both...
