Seeing that we are into the FALL SEASON and winter will be here sooner than we know it, I thought it would be helpful to write about children's sickness, specifically FEVERS. My little 6 week old recently woke up with a FEVER (kind of scary) and it reminded me of my thoughts and beliefs about fevers and childhood sickness. My family and I try to eat a wholesome natural diet...and I also try to HEAL my children a more natural and holistic way. I believe our bodies can perform miracles if we feed them correct foods and when needed- use natural remedies to help faciliate healing.
My little guy only had a fever for a day and a half and it gave me the opportunity to STOP and HOLD HIM (something that I love to do). I have 3 other kids that I also needed to take care of, but other than that- all my other responsibilites stopped and I took care of my little guy. I also have an incredible husband who helped me a lot.
I remember the first time I had a child with a fever I was a nervous wreck...with a prayer in my heart I was lead to an amazing article that opened my eyes to what a fever really is and how I should react to it and what I should do. I wanted to share this article with you. When you have a moment- I would highly recommend reading it. It is found HERE on the MOTHERING website.
Also- check out my prior blog HERE that gives everything I do when my children have a fever.
So- as all of you should know- I am NOT A DOCTOR. But hopefully this information can be of help to some of you out there.
