Please Help with natural remedies, my lo has a low grade fever and ear infection from teething and he's screaming and crying, poor little thing :'-( *sigh* and we're using every holistic natural remedy we have, but we're sleep deprived and run ragged, so, we need some gentle caring level headed support...we don't believe in running off to the hospital unless it's life threatening and we know he'll be ok, but he's suffering...we put cool wash cloths on his forehead, put garlic mullein drops in his ear, I alternate between chamomile oil and Hyland's teething gel on the nipple of his bottle, I put a little chamomile tea in his bottle and he napped, hubby is playing his didge didgeridoo and our lo enjoys it but he's in so much pain and he's miserable, he's very irritable...I tried to give him a frozen waffle and he ate it instead of chewing it and then I tried to put a frozen wash cloth in his mouth and he fought me...we checked his temperature and it's 101.1 in 1 ear and 102.2 in the other...I'm going to google emergen-c for young children...if I dilute it, is it safe to give him? I was pleasantly surprised to see him eat and I was overjoyed, but he's still miserable...I"m foggy at the moment, so I may be forgetting what other natural remedies we gave our son...but I think that is the gist of it...does anyone here have experience with treating their young children and babies' ailments with their babies' own urine? We've considered it in general and I've googled it several times...any other helpful suggestions and please tell me this too shall pass? I'm taking deep breaths and I'm trying to keep my wits about me, but this has been a very stressful difficult weekend.
