Advice ; To take or not to take that is the question

In today’s society we are constantly conflicted with choosing between old home remedies and items vs new modern medicine and modern gadgets. This is by no means a post to tell you which method is better than the other, but merely to point out home remedies and items that I have come across in this past month. That worked out for my kids and I. I am sure you have heard about or even used one or all of these home tips before please let me know in the comments below.


As a third time mom, I was already aware of the sisters’ at the clinics advising that, if you can, to exclusively breastfeed your child for the first 6 months. However, what they don’t tell you is that your child will suffer with winds and as I know it “suur”(they can also get plenty of fine pimples due to this). So I also give my baby a water bottle mixed with a 5ml gripe water to take care of that.


Zoë and Kai both had allergic reactions to Pampers, so I was happy when the Pampers premium worked well for Zion. However when I went to buy him more nappies they didn’t have stock of the premium and I just bought regular Pampers, biggest mistake because he had an allergic reaction to that.When I told my sister about it, she said I must use maziena(corn starch) as that was what her sister in law was advised to do,who would have thought maziena would do the trick?


It’s of course flu season and unfortunately for us,all of us have come down with the flu, Zion has also had a little bit of a blocked nose since birth. So my mom in law recommended that we get some camphor blocks,sew it into some material and tie it around their necks. When my grandmother in law came over to visit she advised us to rub some castor oil over the bridge of Zion’s nose to unblock it(guess what,it also works if you have sinus issues).


I Saw the funniest meme online yesterday and thought that it would be a perfect picture to add into this post.
