For the first time since Bridget was a baby, she has an ear infection. And Dave and I have decided we are going to do everything we can to heal it at home with alternative medicines rather than take her to the doc.
"Why?" you ask.
She's already on a boatload of meds. She has a lot of antibiotics over the last year. Earaches often heal on their own without antibiotic intervention. And we know, for sure, she'll be back in the hospital at some point in the future and, at that point, she will be exposed to some gross germies there. We want her to be as sensitive as possible to the antibiotics she might need then. We don't need her losing her sensitivities to antibiotics when she doesn't need to.
So...moms and dads: what do you do? We're massaging around her ears with essential oils. Any other advice? Or assvice, because we all know this is the interwebs.
