WOW!! Ok so I have NOT been able to put Baby V down for a nap or for resting in her crib without her brother or sister making a huge show for her. Like she would NOT let me walk away, she would wail and cream and act up. I know this is the 4th trimester but dang, momma needs to pee and shower too you know??
Today finally, after a very long & weird night of baby V fighting with the boob and fighting sleep, I mean she would AT LEAST take a cat nap on my chest for 1-2 hours after midnight… but since two days ago not even that… anyway, going back to what I realized… she must be teething, I mean, add the massive drooling and her constant complaining and the latch on and off she started doing she must have discomfort somewhere, and we look at her gums and a few spots look a bit different. I’m like ok, I know what to do with this…
I find an essential oils bottle that has 2-3 drops of Lavender Vitality left and add 5 drops of Clove Vitality and top it off with 50 drops of coconut oil and I apply it to her jaw line outside and on her gums and she goes on a nap. A whole hour nap, right away.
Look, Lavender calms anyone down, I used it to help me fall asleep when my mind was going cuckoo thinking about my deadlines and bills… you know, the stuff that keeps everyone awake. And Clove is awesome at soothing sore spots, I love it in tea too when I have a cough cause it’s like a soft shawl of comfort… so yes these two together rock.
But let me tell you, I would NOT do this with just ANY old bottle of Lavender or Clove, in fact I would strongly warn you against using any other type than the one with a Vitality label from Young Living. I get it online at my favorite online shop in this kit below:
