I LOVE Rescue Remedy! It works on energetic principles, same as homeopathy, so it is absolutely safe to take while pregnant or breastfeeding. It is preserved in alcohol, but you only use four drops in a glass of water and then sip it, so the amount of alcohol you ingest is miniscule. I have used it with DD since she was about 3 mos. old - just give her a tiny sip of water in which I have put the drops. Again, miniscule amount of alcohol ingested. You can also rub it on baby's temples or put a few drops in a spray bottle with water and mist it in the air, if you dont want her to ingest it. I mainly use it to help me or DD calm down - when we are cranky, fussy, can't fall asleep, feeling stressed out and can't turn off those obsessive thoughts... Generally, I feel like it helps to reset the emotional barometer. Sometimes it makes me so sleepy I need to take a nap, and does the same for DD (helpful during teething whe other things don't work). I keep it in a drawer in the kitchen and use it as needed. They also make a Rescue Remedy cream, but I haven't tried that.
