I am breastfeeding a 3-month-old baby girl and have severe constipation. I may go a week without a bowel movement. This is not normal and very painful. When I do finally go, it is very hard stool.
What is safe for me, and my child to help alleviate the problem without losing my milk supply?

Answer by Dherbs

Public

A laxative will not impair your milk supply. Try our BOWEL MOVER and/or COLON FORMULA.

    Q: I have a 7 month old baby girl name Neffera. I breast fed her for about 4 1/2 months. I have been giving her soy infant formula and really do not feel right about it. I also have been giving her the Gerber organic green beans, peas, applesauce, ect. She has a lot of congestion and mucus like I have never seen before ever in a baby. I am not sure what has caused all of this mucus, but I want to strengthen her immune system and feed her better. What do you suggest?

    A:

    Wow, Beloved! I'll tell you what caused all that mucus: the soy-based infant formula which is crap!!!! Plus, those baby foods. Gerber's is CRAP!!!!! You must undo the damage you unintentionally done via ignorance. Please read our article on "ALTERNATIVE INFANT FORMULA MILK" and learn to make alternative formulas for your baby. You must also start making your own baby food. You must do these things to reverse the serious harm you've done to your baby. All wrong can be righted by doing the right thing. I would highly, highly, highly recommend you schedule a 1-hour health consultation (only $100) a.s.a.p. There's just so much that needs to be explained to you so that child can make a speedy recovery. Time here won't allow it, so a consultation is best!

    Q: I have an 8 month old baby that has severe a topic dermatitis as well as food allergies, and other allergies. He is currently on different skin creams and allergy medicine. I would like to know if any of your products could be helpful for him?

    A:

    Yes, have him perform the Children's Cleanse. You can drop the extracts into his milk.

    Also, apply our Oz-Oil to his skin every day throughout the day.

    In addition, the child's diet needs to change. Consider a vegan (vegetarian) diet that is full of fresh fruits and vegetables to give your child the nutrients he needs for his body to function optimally.

    Q: I am African American and I have a two-week-old baby girl. I breast feed her, she still spits up all the time and sometimes it comes out through her nose. Saliva builds up in her mouth where it is difficult for her to breathe. She has thick white film on her tongue, and she has small tiny red bumps all over her face. I desperately need some advice to cure these ailments.

    A:

    Your baby's colon is taxed and it sounds like from YOUR diet. Watch what you eat for your baby's sake. Start taking MUCUS BUSTER FORMULA and DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. Eat more fruits and vegetables. Her face is breaking out because her colon is not working. The skin is the largest organ of elimination so the skin is being used to help the baby eliminate!

    Q: I am the mother of a 2 yr old that suffers from eczema terribly. Not only does she have eczema she suffers from a host of food allergies. My baby also is very emotional and hyper sensitive. I have worked with herbalists in the past that seemed to help. Doing my research I learned that they were not really helping me but keeping my baby hooked on their remedies instead of teaching me how to keep my baby strong. I don't have a problem purchasing remedies, but this person was upwards of 200-300 per month. I am a single mother and cannot afford that. I have looked into your products and would like to begin my daughter on a regiment that would help her. Right now my daughter is suffering from severe itching of her legs, arms, everywhere and it happens mostly at night or when she feels she has not had her way. Help!!!!!

    A:

    All understanding of healing begins with knowledge and healing itself begins in the mind. See your child well and the child will get well. Check out our MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL. Good reading! Please read our article on "ECZEMA" and "SKIN DISORDER = BLOOD DISORDER" in our articles section. It's not so much about taking products but modifying the diet. Most children with eczema are fed a horrible and poor diet rich in meat, dairy products, refined grains, etc. that only exacerbates the problem. Rub the child's skin down with Shea Butter. Alternate with our HEALING SKIN OIL. The child's bed should be draped in the color blue, the antidote to the color red, the color of burning inflammation. bed sheets, spread, pillows, etc should be blue or light blue. I'd even paint the walls of the child's bedroom sky blue due to its soothing effect. It's a shame that some herbalists are only about the money. At Dherbs, we are all about education which is why our site is laced with so much information. Stay positive and optimistic!

    Q: I have a question, my baby girl is 11 months old and this Friday I notice that she has a big eye and too much tear so I clean and wash the eye with chamomile and I just reading about this plant call clary sage they call the cleary eye so can you please tell me if it can help us.

    A:

    Yes, the actual plant is what you want to use. Not the essential oil. Any flower (i.e. chamomile, chrysanthemum, calendula or marigold, passionflower, etc.) will help the eyes.

    Q: If I may ask, what is it specifically about the baby's diet that is conducive to eczema? We try to give her a normal, healthy, nutritious diet. Exactly which foods are acid-forming so that we may alternate them out of her diet? As for my wife, she has taken several detoxes in the past with no results. She is now expecting and breastfeeding so I don't believe a detox would be the best thing for her at the moment. Are there any other suggestions you can offer us for currently treating these problems?

    A:

    The acid-forming foods are eggs, meat, dairy products, and refined grains. Shop for vegan foods. Your wife can drink DETOX TEA and use HEALING SKIN OIL (externally) as well as drink vegetable juice (which greatly cleanses the blood). Please consider a consultation so that all questions may be thoroughly answered and so you all can get on the path of healing together as a family.

    Q: I recently purchased the Children's Cleanse (Liquid) to clean out my 6 month old baby boy. The problem is, every time the mucus comes up he quickly swallows it back down. What do you suggest I do?

    A:

    The mucus the child swallows back down will leave the body via the stools. When the child is older, he/she will learn to spit the mucus out. The body knows how to eliminate what is not wanted in the body.

    Q: Greetings, I wanted to first say thanks for all of the great advice you have given me over the past couple of months. On Tuesday my husband and I welcomed our second daughter into the world. We had a natural birth with a midwife, and it was the best experience ever! So, you know I have a question for you. My midwife, and pediatrician are worried, and preplexed because my daughter who was born on Tuesday has not had a bowel movement yet. She has not passed any meconium at all, and from what I've read newborns are supposed to pass this within 24 hours after birth. I was full term at 40 weeks at the time of delivery. The baby had a full ultrasound today, and I am waiting to hear the results. We are keeping a positive outlook, but you know I had to get your take on the situation because I trust your judgement and advice. I've also sent you a few photos of my family and our new baby girl. Take care and the best to you and your family.

    A:

    Greetings! Wow! Adorable, precious little baby. Kudos to you and the family! Beloved, trust in Nature. Every body, and every baby is different. The baby will release when he/she is ready to release. My recent son didn't release until 2-3 days later. However, he eventually released. Babies are not on our worldly time schedule. We shouldn't hold them to our worldly expectations, because then we start to think something is wrong (with them), and start worrying which is unhealthy. Just show the love! That's it! Nature got this!!! I have a new e-book "The Complete Home-Birth Guidebook" you will find of great assistance with your post-natal process and period. Great information for you in it! Peace and love!

    Q: I've read that it's not a good idea to start a detox program while breastfeeding because the toxins are released through the milk to the baby. It that true or is there something I can start doing to detox before I wean my son?

    A:

    THE BREASTS ARE NOT ELIMINATIVE CHANNELS SO TOXINS WON'T BE ELIMINATED VIA THE BREASTS. IF ANYTHING, THE BREASTS MANIFESTS WHAT'S IN THE BLOODSTREAM (OR WHAT'S EATEN)? WE DON'T RECOMMEND DETOXING WHILE BREASTFEEDING BECAUSE THE HERBS ARE TOO POTENT AND A WOMAN SHOULD CONCENTRATE ON THE BABY'S NEEDS MORE THAN HER OWN UNTIL THE BABY IS DONE WITH THE BREASTS.

    Q: I have a 2 month old newborn son, I did not circumcise, I had him at home without active/medical management, and I breast feed exclusively. However, my milk supply is decreasing by the day. I drink Organic Mother's Milk tea, Raspberry Leaf tee, and I drink 3 glasses of Spirulina water a day. Also, while I was pregnant suffered from Candida, up until a week before the natural birth. From then until now, the yeast was gone. I've recently started itching, and discharging again. Please advise me of your products that would heal the condition?

    A:

    You might want to try these products Beloved! Echinacea-Goldenseal extract and/or the 10-Day Electric Greens Cell Food Cleanse.

    Q: I was looking at your recipies for infant milk. I am breastfeeding but need to wean. I was interested in giving him rice milk (Rice Dream enriched with vit a, c,and other vitamins). However, the website says not for use as infant formula. Why would this not be a good substitute? What would this be lacking? Why is your recipie a complete formula for proper infant nutrition? Please Help a concerned new mom!

    A:

    Rice Dream is fortified with SYNTHETIC nutrients (vitamins and minerals) and therefore it's not a good source of organic nutrition. If you use Rice Dream, please fortify it with organic nutrition like Dherbs.com Moringa Seed Extract and Iodine Phosphate Extract (add 5 dropperfuls of each formula to infant milk).

    Q: Thank you for the great advice! :) Our baby has had baby eczema since infancy; however it looks as though it is now getting worse. She has always been and continues to be breastfed; we have supplemented with formula and Gerber baby products once she was ready for solids. She is now eating foods such as oatmeal, whole milk (sometimes we tradeoff between that and baby formula), various fruits and vegetables, meats such as chicken, turkey and beef, pasta, bread, beans, rice, etc. She seems to be more interested in eating carbohydrates than anything else. Also, another question we have is pertaining to my wife's acne and melasma problem which she has had for several years since adolescence (acne) and since she started using contraceptives (melasma). She also has a few crow's feet around her eyes which she would like to get rid of. Do you have any advice and or recommendations for treating these problems? Once again, thank you for the advice and we greatly appreciate your help/suggestions.

    A:

    The baby's diet is unfortunately conducive to eczema. It is greatly acid-forming and needs to be changed immediately. For your wife, have her begin her healing journey by performing the FULL BODY DETOX.

    Q: I am a 28 year old mother of a 23 month old daughter. My husband, and I are striving to get pregnant again. I have read that because I am still nursing that will be a problem, is this true? I've had my menstrual cycle since the baby was 6 months, and my cycle is regular. My daughter does nurse periodically during the night, but she isn't ready to wean totally off the breast yet. Any suggestions ,or things I should take in consideration?

    A:

    A bunch of BS! Don't believe the hype! Focus on what you desire, and constantly play with the thought in your head. Work your mental science. Please read our Mental Science Manual for more insight into your mental powers and how you can use your mind to get what you want.

    Q: Do you have any herbs for baby reflux? My daughter gives her baby boy soymilk. I told her soy milk makes mucus among other reasons. What other alternative for soymilk other than breast milk?

    A:

    Make a tea using anise seed and/or caraway seed, sweeten it with maple syrup, and add a little lemon and put in a baby bottle and give to the baby. However, remove the acid foods. Tell her to use hemp, almond, or rice milk. They are far better than soy milk.
