Re: Home earache remedies?

If you are BFing, you can squirt some into the ear. If that doesn't do the trick, we use this Essential Oil remedy (we warm the oil a little bit first)~

Earache/ Earinfection for Babies
Lavender 1 drop
Chamomile (German) 1 drop

Add the above to 1 teaspoon of PURE, virgin, olive oil. Mix well. Soak a cotton ball in this mixture and plug the baby’s ear with it. (I have used this on myself and it greatly relieved the pain!)

I have also heard of mashing up garlic and letting it steep in some warm Olive oil, straining and when it cools, soaking a cotton puff and making an ear plug with that. I have never tried that, though.

Good luck , Mamma!
