4 Products to Help an Ear Infection; Home Remedies
Us momma's never like when our babies are sick. Luckily, there are many different ways we can help. The first line of defense can be a home defense. I want to encourage you that there are many powerful remedies that can help your babes before antibiotics.Whether this is your first kiddo rodeo or you 6th, ear infections are common. So here are the top 3 home remedies to help ease an ear infection at first sight! Key word here is to catch it EARLY.
1. Willow & Garlic Oil; #1 Ear Infection Oil
2. Smart Silver -or- Colloidal Silver
3. Hydrogen Peroxide
I have actually used Hydrogen peroxide for many years to clean out my ears. I started doing this when I learned that cramming a cue tip up our ears can actually lodge wax further in the ear, potentially causing other issues.As an adult, I usually have Hydrogen Peroxide sit in each ear for about 10 minutes. But for babies, it's how ever long they can sit still. This can help have a clean ear to heal. Just remember, use food grade hydrogen peroxide only.
4. Warm Compress
A warm compress is a traditional way to ease the pain of an ear ache. Just place a warm washcloth over their ear white trying to have them lay down for a few minutes. Do this a few times a day or as needed. I love to do this while I am waiting for any other pain remedies to kick in.
