It is most beneficial if the remedy is taken as soon as the first symptoms appear. Take two pellets of the indicated remedy and wait. You should see a change within the 1:10 time frame – for example if the pain has been present for one hour – 60min then the symptoms should shift within 6 min. Nurse the baby as often as possible on the painful side and line up the baby’s chin with the duct that seems to be the most affected. This will drain that duct and clear any blockage.
