Q: My babies are sniffling all the time – what can I do?
Welcome to the world of motherhood and all the typical worries it brings into your life!
First of all, it is normal for babies to sniffle, to have rashes, to spit up and have colic and other alarming symptoms.
Did you know that babies are born before they are fully developed? Ideally, a baby should be in the womb for 12 months. Instead, a baby is born after 9 months and spends the first 3 months in life still developing its body. Colics at this time of life are an indication of a still unsettled stomach. Breast milk is the best tolerated food at that time of life. Formula may be harder to digest.
Sniffles can be an indication of poor digestion and the buildup of phlegm in the body, until such time as the little one has fully grown inner organs and set them in proper motion. Breast milk is the best solution when possible.
Sniffles can be a sign of poor air quality. Indoors air even in a clean house, is not the best – baby needs the fresh air outdoors. Open the window a crack if you can’t go out for a walk.
If your baby was vaccinated, sniffles can be a sign of toxicity and emerging allergies. After all, the many components of vaccines are all known toxins that are meant to create an immune reaction. But your little one has no immunity to speak of, so no real way to protect itself from the shock and no way to eliminate the cocktail of toxicity that has been introduced into its little body in such a short amount of time.
A whistleblower recently exposed the faking of vaccine safety results. You can expect your child to be affected by toxic chemicals in vaccines. You can read more on this here>>
When it is a cold, for real.
Colds and rashes are a natural process of maturation for babies’ immune system. They help it adapt to the environment – each cold is a training session, so to speak, for the immune system to learn to deal with illness or poisons. There are many types of viruses and bacteria in our environment and children tend to try them all out.
The more you let a child develop natural defences, the fewer colds and flu’s it will have in the future! There is a good reason why children catch so many colds in day care, kindergarten and school. I am tempted to say it is because their maturing immune system is “learning” (which is true), but there is another factor that is also a major problem. Actually, there are two:1. Separation anxiety. Babies and small children thrive at home. They do not really like to socialize much and have very little interest in other little children.
Early separation causes stress that a child cannot resolve at such a tender age, it has no tools to deal with the emotional pain. Eventually children will adapt by shutting down their emotions, by becoming indifferent to the trauma, by suppressing it. In most cases, this will be expressed externally as allergies, colds, etc.2. Vaccinations. Most kids are vaccinated since birth nowadays. Most of the time they sniffle not because of a cold, but due to toxicity that is not being addressed. Poor food, deficiencies, exposure to computers and tv, poor sleeping habits – all of this, combined with repeated toxic shock from frequent vaccines, causes a deep destabilization of the health of a child.
Medicating is not the answer
Most kids start taking medication very early – for fevers and rashes and colds.
It is best to not give medication for fevers or colds. Suppressing them leaves a child vulnerable to future illness because their body was never allowed to complete the process of “infection-response-healing”, with “healing” being a major component in this process. Our body creates strong defences and healthy organs by fighting illness. If a disease process can’t conclude naturally, the new defences are never put in place, leaving a child vulnerable and always a little bit sick.
Parents’ feelings – both irritant and cure
Parents of young children suffer from major changes in life: from a life of independence to one of confusion and increased demand on their time and new responsibilities, adjustments and daily irritants. It can be really overwhelming.
A tired and stressed mother emits a discordant energetic field, invisible to the eye, but directly felt by the children. All children to the age of 7-8 are living in the emotional atmosphere of the parents, and especially the mom. Regulating our emotions will give results that no medication can offer.
We all know the saying “Soaks it all up like a sponge”. Well, children do soak it all up. When we hide our true feelings, our babies not only feel what we feel but they are also confused by the appearance of calm, by the mis-match between our soothing words and our inner irritation.
Do not get discouraged or feel guilty. Instead, use this knowledge to help yourself and your child. Find ways to calm down and approach your child with open heart and with love, as often as you can. The sensation of inner peace, love and acceptance strengthens a baby’s inner balance, allowing for more resilience to temporary storms at home.
And remember – nobody knows how to be a parent until the baby comes. And then we all learn by trial and error. It is a humbling process, one that chips away at our ego – that ego that we developed by being children ourselves! Think back to your own childhood – what did you most yearn for? What did you most suffer from? Chances are your child is going through the same steps right now.
