Works for Me 1

Well I might as well have something assigned to me for my blog on Mondays and Wednesdays... helps me insure that I get on here and journal.

I read Nettie's blog today and really enjoyed her tip about baby vitamins and administering this or any medicine in the tub. One smart mommy...

What works for me is Kid-e-Col. We have been using this stuff since Liam was a couple weeks old. He has always been a gassy kid so this stuff has been a lifesaver. When he is crying out of control all we have to do is put a few drops of it in his mouth and he immediately calms down. It's all natural catnip and fennel, so it's safe to him give multiple times in a day (not that we need to).

My friend, LeArta, gave this to us at my baby shower. I am so grateful she did. We just barely bought a second bottle a couple weeks ago (in other words, it lasts a long time).

Stephanie mentioned one of his tonics in a WWFMW post. I had never heard of him before, and now I have twice in one day. I love hearing about all these wonderful things from great moms!

Awwww. Thanks for the mention Nettie. I need to learn how to do that.

I LOVE Dr. Christopher! I swear by his tonics. I never used the Kid-e-Col (I've used Reg,Well, & Mune), but I did use Gripe Water. Sounds like it's made out of the same stuff. Thanks for sharing!
