Many thanks for your queries, and yes I most certainly can help you.
Your son is definitely teething and this can be a very uncomfortable process for your little one. The excess fluid in his ear and the pulling and rubbing of his ear is an indication that he has referred discomfort and possible pain radiating from the gums to the ear(s). His sleeping pattern is disrupted because he is so uncomfortable, and then of course this compounds on you as his mum.
The following works very well for babies when teething. It is a homeopathic approach using tissue salts, completely safe, non addictive, works well and parallel if allopathic medicine needs to be added, and there are no side effects. Tissue salts work with vibrationary energy healing and are suitable for the newborn right up to the elderly. This is for the clinical picture you have given :
CALC FLUOR tissue salts No. 1, given as x 1 crushed tablet and added to a little filtered or cooled boiled water. Do this 3 times a day before a feed. Calc Fluor's primary function is for elasticity. It will assist the tooth to cut through the gums comfortably instead of edging and itching its way out of the gum.
CALC PHOS tissue salts No. 2, given as x1 crushed tablet prepared exactly as above and added to the Calc Fluor. Calc Phos's primary function is to build solid dentine and enamel. It also acts as an analgesic for toothache.
Because of the excess fluid in the ear, and ultimately looking at preventing toxins passing from the gums to the respiratory system and then the posibility of diarrhoea, all due to teething, I would like you to use the SISTER LILLIAN TISSUE SALT RANGE as there is an in-built probiotic in her formulation which will help to prevent any mucous collection due to the toxins settling, thereby eliminating this excess through the urine. Your son will be visibly soothed and even may go into a sleep - this is due to the vibrationary energy healing.
Once his teething has settled you can reduce his intake to the same dosage, only twice a day.
You could also add the RESCUE REST at night, from the same range (Sister Lillian). Crush x2 tablets and prepare separately, or with his last dose of tissue salts for the evening. This will help him to sleep. You can take it too!
During the day if you wanted to, you could rub his gums with good old ASTON PARSON'S POWDER - this remedy has been around along time and works. When rubbing the powder onto the gums, rub it onto the top gum, and onto the inner and outer part of the gum, and also the same with the lower gums. Try and steer clear of Teejel as it can become addictive. Teethers are fantastic to have for baby - always have two - one in the fridge and the other available for use.
I do hope that he will be more comfortable soon, and that you both get some sleep. All the best of luck!
Nursing caries is a very common paediatric dental problem. And as correctly stated it can be the result of the bottle when the child was younger-either with the little one possibly falling asleep with a bottle of milk, fruit juice or any sugar containing liquid. Sucking on a sweetened dummy could have also caused this. Since you have consulted a dentist already, I have some other suggestions that might help. Please be sure to contact him again if you believe there may be an infection or if her pain gets worse. Some general adbice: Avoid diets rich in sugar and starches. Avoid sweetened fluids. Restrict sugary snacks. Follow strict dental hygiene. Clean teeth morning and before bedtime. Choose a soft bristle toothbrush. I would recommend using an organic toothpaste like Organic Children available from our Wellness Baby department. It is natural and does not contain any Sodium Lauryl Sulphate. It has a nice blend of herbs and oils including Aloe Vera, Mandarin, Orange and Myrrh essential oils. They are known for their antibacterial and antiseptic properties. I would also recommend giving her some probiotics like Reuteri which will help develop her natural resistance to infection and caries. Regards Reena (Homeopath, Cavendish)
