Toddler teething: How to ease the Distress
One phase that all children go through is the teething stage. While some children may seem unfazed by this phase, others have great problems with it. If your toddler is teething and is struggling with it, there are many things that you can do to help them with the discomfort.
The first thing that you can do to help ease the pain is to give them a cold teething ring to chew on. Chewing on something cold will help dull the pain that they are feeling and bring some comfort to them. There are many toys available that are devoted to this cause, but you can also give them a cold, wet or frozen washcloth to chew on as well.
There are also teething toys that vibrate as well. Many children find these to be even more comforting than cold options. For this reason, you may need to try out a few different teething options before you find one that will help your toddler the most.
You can also make some homemade teething oil out of some natural items as well. For example, olive oil and coconut oil can be combined with clove bud essential oil to create a natural oil to help relieve pain. This is a fantastic option and will help you to avoid giving your toddler medication that may be harmful for them.
Toddler teething: How to ease the Distress,
Be careful when and how you use it
I bought into the hype and broke down and tried this product. After all, how can you resist something that claims that the fat is literally taken out of some of the food that you eat! I must say, though, pay attention to the directions on the package. I used it for a few days with none of the negative effects that many people experience. But during those times I ate fairly healthy meals and nothing too fatty. Then I went out with friends and didn't think about the fact I had taken these pills. I ate chicken wings, blue cheese and french fries. And spent most of the night and a good portion of the next day with several occasions of racing to the bathroom because of digestive issues. I suppose it shows that it does remove "stuff" from your diet because I sometimes have issues going at all and with using this product I went several times a day. But is it worth the risk? Besides, I have no idea if taking the pill was making a difference in my weight loss or if I was having success because I was being more careful in my food choices leading to lower calorie intake.
Weight Loss through Fear of Embarrassment
Was excited to try Alli, heard such great things. Did not see anything for the first couple days I took this. Then came the HORRIBLE side effects. Oily, greasy residue in your underwear and the toilet, and the smell. Oh my gosh. It was awful. Talk about eating healthy - for fear of what this will do to you. Didn't even finish the first bottle it was so terrible.
