Vancouver(ish) Tribe: Colourful leaves and tangible mists begin to Fall - Page 11

post #201 of 208

We had our first at St. Paul's and enjoyed the all in one Labour/Delivery/Postpartum rooms. We lucked out and got a corner room which was spacious, had a nice bathroom. 

 

We wanted to have our second at St. Paul's but they were full. We were told there was only one room left at Women's so we went and managed to get one of the 2 Cedar rooms which are also all in one Labour/Delivery/Postpartum rooms. The room was nice, but we left less than an hour after the baby was born.

 

I haven't been to RCH, but if I was to choose between St. Paul's and Women's I would go with St. Paul's because all of the rooms are L&D.

Hi, everyone!

Has anyone ever given Elder berry to a child to fight an ear infection?  If so, how much?  I have Prairie Doctor Brand Elder Berry and Flower (it says that each ML contains 250 mg dried Sambucus Nigra berry and flower and 40% ethyl alcohol).  The adult dosage given is 1-2 ml, 2 times per day.

Maybe a syrup would be better?

Help!  :)

Thanks!!

really attached to autumn, hey? winky.gif

 

i haven't tried elderberry (missed them this year!) but if you'd like an alternative, my best remedy is to swish crushed garlic in olive oil and drip that into their ear, plug it with some cotton to keep it from going everywhere, maybe lie down on the other ear. some folks warm it up so it feels less surprising! 

 

heal well! x

Does the elder berry work for middle ear infections?

 

My oldest daughter just got the worst cold/flu she has ever had and got her first ear infection. She had alternating earaches for a couple of days as we used garlic drops, osteo massage and the earaches developed into a full blown middle ear infection.

 

Now her brother has caught the same illness and is complaining of earaches.

Hi! I'm Lauren and I'm new here, but if you're looking for holistic and natural remedies for ear issues, you should try Saje Natural Wellness, they have them at Metrotown, Robson, Langley, Coquitlam Center, theres this product called Clear Ear, that I've used with my Daughter a FEW times!

 

I can't stray from the Vancouver people even thou I ran to Red Deer AB :)

Hi everyone. Subbing.

 

I haven't been on the MDC boards for ages. Where is everyone posting? Usually this board is super active!

Hi Lunagal.... I don't think there's another thread.  A lot of the "old" people from this tribe are now on Facebook, that's how I hear about them :-)

 

This thread has been active since the fall, and not too much so.

 

I wanted to invite everyone to the first Waldorf School Spring Market.  I usually don't do Easter gifting, but after drooling upon all the gorgeous handmade stuff I'm thinking I'll get a thing or two for the kids...  everything hand made locally and following the Waldorf philosophy.

Check out the facebook event page, there are photos of the goodies for sale, and directions to the school.

 

The Market is happening this Sunday, April 3rd. from 10-3.  Things have been flying off the shelf from the temporary display at Birkeland Bros so if there's something you really want, better get there early!

 

Hope to see many familiar faces then!
