Babies and the treatment of newborns has always been my speciality. Homeopathy is completely safe for babies, there are no side effects and you cannot do harm. If you choose the wrong remedy the only thing that will happen is nothing. If you choose the right remedy you will likely know immediately as babies are very vital, clear and responsive to the gentle stimulation of homeopathy.
Here is how to give a tiny baby a remedy:
In a glass jar, put two pellets in 1/2 cup of water. Let the pellets dissolve. Give the baby a teaspoon of the mixture. Store the water potency in the refrigerator. Use as needed and then discard when you are finished. A teaspoon = a dose.
You can put pellets directly into their mouths, it is o.k. to touch them. Do one pellet at a time. They will roll them around and possibly spit them out but as long as they have held it in their mouths for even a small period of time the remedy will act. Two pellets = a dose.
Arnica 200C and Hypericum 200C are the remedies and the potencies you want to give for pain after a tongue tie release. Give each remedy twice a day for three days following the procedure. The combination of your magical breast milk and these two homeopathics will speed healing and provide comfort.
I highly recommend using Hahnemann Labs in Berkeley, California – http://www.hahnemannlabs.com for your homeopathic supplies, their remedies are in poppyseed format and are perfect for babies and children, as well as being of extremely high quality. They are the best!
