  • no way! for one thing alfafa is a diuretic that could dehydrate your child.

    if you really want to use something homeopathic, go to the healthfood store. they have allot of different Hyland's brand baby remedies. Hylands has been around for years. I used their products with great success.

    i also made sure i checked with my doctor before i even used the Hylands products. Always run it past your pediatrician.

  • Your safest bet is to consult your pediatrician.........that is the only advice I would trust when it comes to something that could potentially harm my child. They are the ones that can tell you if it is safe or not and usually just a phone call in is all you need.......so no copay or dr. visit.
