This post is part of a collaboration with Egg by Susan Lazar. Thank you for learning about the companies that support Motherhood Through My Eyes.
The moment someone hears the words, “baby has a fever” they’re quick to throw the words Tylenol that way.
What if I told you there are other, more natural ways to help bring your child’s temperature down?
When we had our firstborn, he wasn’t the easiest when it came to medicine. At times, we’d shove medicine down his throat to get his fever down, but it wouldn’t bring it down right away.
After crying, throwing up a couple of times and taking a nap, his fever would eventuallysubside.
Finding Remedies That Work
Like most firstborns, he was an experiment. I learned how to cope with his tantrums and decided medicine wasn’t the best way to bring down his fever. Of course, as a parent, if you feel your child needs to seek medical assistance, please do so right away.
Our son’s first fever happened one night while my husband was home from work. It was around his 8-month birthday and we couldn’t get his fever down. Teething was the culprit.
We tried giving him medicine, but he refused. We shoved it down his throat only to have him throw it all up. It wasn’t the easiest stain to get out of his onesie.
This was our routine for a couple of nights. With time, I remembered what my parents would do whenever I had a fever. They’d give us a cool bath, place some Vick’s Vapor Rub on our temples, neck, and chest, and send us off to bed.
Before bed, our parents would dress us warm to help us sweat the fever out. Of course our favorite blanket was always nearby for comfort.
Fast-forward to three kids later, we’ve learned there’s value in keeping certain family remedies.
For our kids, cuddle time is essential when they’re sick. We like to hold them as much as possible whenever we can and give them extra loving when they’re not feeling well.
Comfort Is Everything
Finding products that provide comfort for our kids is key to getting sleep. Just like me, the kids prefer to feel warm and snugged when they’re ready for bed. Whether the kids are feeling under the weather or not, having them properly dressed will allow them to sleep throughout the night.
Before the holidays, we tried baby items from Egg by Susan Lazar. What I like about the company is how they consider it a top priority to nurture little ones so that moms and dads can be sure that their children are dressed in the softest natural fabrics, and styles to suit every child’s special and unique personality. For this reason, they’ve launched their gender-neutral collection for babies.
Gender-neutral clothing is a great option for first-time and expecting parents. With adorable pieces, Egg by Susan Lazar offers a number of options for parents to prepare for their precious newborn’s arrival and make ideal gifts for friends and family. Not only is it a popular choice, but gender-neutral clothing also allows your child’s personality shine. These types of clothing allow their style to develop organically, without the pressure of traditional gender roles affecting their choices and aspirations.
We were excited to see that Egg by Susan Lazar has clothing options for up to 12 years. How cool is that?
