Cucumbers

Eat cucumber as snack for dental health especially for kids. They flush away harmful sugars and put your oral microbiome back in order.

Essential oils & children

Essential oils & children

Not all essential oils are safe to use around babies or children. Never, ever give them for digestion, do your research as different oils can be used at different ages. Always dilute them and use a water soluble carrier if you’re using them with water - say in the bath. ...

Fruit & Pesticides

Fruit & Pesticides

We have one kid that would eat nothing but mango all day everyday. Sadly over here we can not grow them in our garden and shop bought ones are a luxury. I do love shopping local & organic but luckily mango has a dense peel which helps to keep pesticides...

Gut feelings

Gut feelings

We have a child with a milk protein and egg intolerance. The process of figuring it out was painful. The weight loss, rashes and the exhaustion in our baby as her immune system tried to fight it. I have heard of many similar stories since then. The thing you can...

Leg Compresses

Leg Compresses

My grandparents and parents already used leg compresses to lower a fever - it's a simple trick that got passed down and never fails to work.Fever is a good thing, it's protecting the body against infection. Just when it gets too high (40 degrees or above) it's good to lower...

Puppers & Asthma

Puppers & Asthma

Having a puppy is brilliant - hard work - but brilliant. I wanted her for the kids and also a little bit for myself. I had no idea I was also doing the health of my children a benefit. Recent studies show that growing up with a dog actually reduces...

Bath Time

Bath Time

Weekly bath sorted! We only give our kids a bath once a week in only water. It might sound a bit strange but it is actually better for their skin. We do clean the kids bottoms everyday and occasionally if they are very grubby from the sandpit etc. we give...

Vitamin D

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is good for bone health in babies and children as calcium can only be absorbed properly with the help of vitamin D. Nearly all vitamin D gets into the body through the skin, only a very small amount is absorbed through food. Use SPF 15 sunscreen or above...

Sunscreen

Sunscreen

Yesterday a friend asked me about sunscreen - it's a debated topic lately as they discovered a lot of them are not that healthy and people even have started making their own from natural oils. The thing is we do not really use much sunscreen. We make sure the kids...

Herbal Tea

Herbal Tea

Our ladies always have herbal tea in the morning with their breakfast. We pick a mild organic blend that they like the taste of and they help prepare it. We often use fennel tea when they have a tummy upset, or special blends from the pharmacy to ease a cough,...

Thumb Sucking

Thumb Sucking

Both our girls suck their thumbs, I think when they popped out they already knew how to do it! They are three years old now and need it only really at bed time but after speaking to our dentist, we have to start getting them off the habit before their...

Childs play

Childs play

Free play is the healthiest form of play for our children. I do remind myself often to not interrupt my girls and let them be in their own little worlds for that little bit longer - where their minds can relax and re-charge. I love when they arrive at that...

Plasters

Plasters

Sticky plasters are great but very annoying when they don't come back off! I get the ones for sensitive skin or specific kids brands for our girls, as they are generally easier to remove. I always make sure it's big enough to cover the whole wound with the pad only....

UTI Tips

UTI Tips

I read today that a lower UTI is one of the most common bacterial infections in young children. Girls and babies still in nappies are especially prone to getting it, but there are things you can do to prevent it. Changing nappies often and keeping a clean bum. With girls...

Wet Plasters

Wet Plasters

My Dad recommended plasters that keep the graze moist so no scab forms. You wash the wound with clean water and simply pop one of these new plasters on. You get them up to pretty big sizes. They don't come cheap but in most cases you only need one plaster!...
