What’s keeping you up at night?



fussy baby means no sleep – for Baby OR Mom. So what’s keeping your baby up? Two common up-all-night problems are teething and colic, which can leave your little one tired and irritable (Mom might feel the same!). So how do you encourage some much-needed sleep for the both of you?



Every baby must endure this experience and us Moms are along for the ride. It can be tough to watch your little one suffer through this painful process, but there are things you can do to help. And a happy baby, means a happy mom. Teething can begin in infants as young as 2 months even though the first tooth usually does not appear until about 6 months of age. For one baby, cutting a tooth can happen overnight without pain, while another child might have to go through a long, drawn out and painful experience.

Once teething is confirmed, it’s time for a plan of attack. One of the first, go-to Camiliateething aids is Camilia, a homeopathic medicine that is free of dyes, preservatives and sugar. Firstly, it is really easy to use. It comes in individual, drinkable doses that are quick and painless to administer. This makes it easier on Baby (and easier on Mom!). Give one dose, if symptoms persist, repeat at 15 minute intervals for up to three doses. If needed, it can be repeated up to 12 doses per day. Look for that toothless (or nearly toothless) grin to reappear.
After that, there are some home remedies that can soothe your baby’s sore gums:

Gently rub your baby’s gums with a cool washcloth, a clean finger or a soft baby finger toothbrush

Massage your baby’s gums gently with your finger.

Offer a teething ring, preferably one made of firm rubber


Clean diaper. Full belly. What else could be the problem? In newborns, extended Cocyntalperiods of crying could be colic, especially if your baby appears inconsolable. Colic is one of the great mysteries of baby life, and no one knows why some babies have it and others don’t. So, watch for the signs. If your little one has frequent bouts of intense crying, passes gas during these crying jags, or pulls his legs up when crying, it could be colic. There is no real explanation for colic, but some say it is linked to the immature digestive system, gas and tummy aches.

To ease your baby’s symptoms, try these tips:

Offer a homeopathic medicine such as Cocyntal (it is just as easy to use as Camilia, with single, drinkable doses, and is also free of dyes, preservatives and sugar).

Burp your baby frequently, especially after feeds.

Massage your baby gently, or give a warm bath.


Aside from these ideas, you can never give too many cuddles. Your baby will look to you for comfort and relief. No pressure!


These homeopathic medicines may not be right for everyone. Always read and follow the label.
