Keep us posted on if this continues to work....I'm seriously thinking of investing, :yawning: I would order it off the website that was linked. Was that a good price?

I buy Badger stuff from www.drugstore.com

I even got a free diaperbag size of 3 of their balms for purchasing a dozen Lansinoh wipes and some other stuff I needed. I hadn't even know you could get that size...

wow! sounds like the sleep balm is working! we tried hylands "calm forte" and it didn't work very well...i also put a chamomile tea bag in my dd's bath w/ some dr. bronner's lavendar liq. soap. then gave her a lavendar lotion massage after her bath..it was very soothing for both of us

it seemed that her sleeplessness was related to teething and a runny nose, so sleep has been easier lately, but i want to get some of that sleep balm for just in case! can an adult use it?

whats the name again? : we don't have a whole foods but we do have a local organic grocer that has lots of goodies

thanks

Same story here! We give her teething tabs every night just before bed (DD is 14.5 months) and she falls asleep sometime between 8 and 9 PM. She's been sleeping better since we started using them, and has a harder time falling asleep when we forget. So it's now just a part of the routine.

Natural sleep remedies for restless, nightwalking babies

Hi,
I tried a baby massage oil which included lavender but didn't work. Tried many over the counter homeopathy but no result. Finally, I consulted a classical homeopath and that helped and everytime my ds went through a bad phase of hourly waking I would call my homeopath and her remedies would help.

My ds is now 21 month old and started to sleep quite good only in the last 2 months -coincided with the night time weaning I think.

Does your baby have gas? teething?

I haven't slept in 18 months. Also tried Hylands teething tabs and their new kids Calms Forte - no luck so far. Even tried Rescue Remedy and something I got from a naturpath that's homeopathic as well. No dice so far. I'll see if I can find that Badger Balm here in Canada to give it a try!

How are you all using the sleep balm? Where do you put it etc. on baby?

I bought some yesterday and am waiting to use it. My baby is restless from a horrendous travel weekend + cold + teething.

Also, is it okay to give a baby Calms Forte? Its lowest dose info is for ages 6 to 12.

don't know if it's been posted, but homepathic coffeea is my restless night waker's remedy. works like a charm for him and could be the right one for some other mama's "wakers".

also, latest issue of homeopathy today has an ad in the beginning few pages for a company that has a remedy that would be appropriate for some other babes who may no be "coffeeas." i will try to remember to see what it was and post.

and don't forget to potentize every dose!

I rubbed the sleep balm on her temples, wrists and nesk...We made a game of it.
Read two short books, nursed for 20minutes and viola she is asleep!

I'm so glad I read this thread!!

so glad i read this thread. i'm going to try sleep balm as well. i'm sure my husband, who is currently upstairs bouncing our son to sleep, wished we had it now. hopefully, it'll work for our little one.

is 3 mo. too young to use sleep balm?
post #34 of 72
I think you ould use it at 3 months..but 3 months is too soon to sleep through the night, IMHO.

So...I've been hesistant to put this in writing....hope I don't jinx myself! :LOL The sleep balm is working! Didn't work the first night all that well, but the last 3 nights have been great! Last night....she slept from 7:15-5:00!!!! Longest stretch EVER by far!!

I rub it on her temples and neck..

OMG I just fell upon this thread. No sleep in over a year, 19 mos old wakes hourly......longest stretch was 4 hours once. I went thru this w/ older child too but she settled easier this one is nuts. Could someone PM me info I won't be on much.

DITO! I am desperate...I'll try anything!!

I'm wondering what others that have used both Hyland's and Badger Balm; what worked best???
post #40 of 72
Just went to my health food/homeopath store...

They don't carry Badger's but I bought Hylands' Calms Forte (they make it for ages 2-?) and some other one a syrup called KIDS Calms.....I started that one a couple hours ago.....


PS..would one of you mamas be willing to buy me the Badger's balm and send to me? I'm in Canada and I can't order it for some reason.......I have about $6 US funded PP.............

Anyone? Please PM me.
