All information in this article is solely the opinion of the authors and for educational purposes only. It is not for the diagnosis, treatment, prescription or cure of any disease or health condition.
This is a compilation of advice for parents about their babies based on development science. Topics are arranged in alphabetical order.
Activity level. Please do not stress your baby in any way. For example, they need loads of rest and sleep. Do not keep babies up late at night, either. Also, do not make babies stay up when they want to go to sleep, and do not wake babies up when they are sleeping.
Babies need to be held and touched at least a few times each day. It is also good to talk to babies a lot. They will learn language faster this way, and it is a form of bonding.
However, don’t overdo it. If a baby wants to sleep, or closes the eyes, or starts crying, or turns away, let him or her sleep. Babies need a lot of sleep and this helps them grow properly. It does not mean they don’t like you. Babies love their parents!
Other stressors for babies are too much heat, too much light, too much noise or loud talking, rough handling or anything upsetting in the environment.
Healthy babies do not cry much. If your baby cries a lot, the baby needs a development program because, most likely, the baby does not feel very well.
Alone. It is dangerous for a baby to be alone. They are attacked today by entities or souls that will harm them a lot. Babies need to be with someone all the time, even while napping and definitely while they sleep at night.
Sleep. Babies up until at least age 1 and three months need to sleep with their parents, ideally in the same bed. Here are the rules for this:
- No soft mattresses or soft mattress toppers. With a soft mattress, you can turn over onto your baby and kill the baby easily, especially a young baby. If the mattress is firm, this is much harder and so it is much safer for your baby. Remove the mattress topper or get a firm mattress if you are going to have a baby.
- Beware – babies fall off their parents beds all the time and this can kill or maim your baby. All it takes is a parent moving his or her arm during sleep and it sweeps a young baby right off the bed.
So, on the side where the baby sleeps, be sure to put something right next to the bed to either keep the baby on the bed or if the baby falls, the baby will fall onto a very soft pad or mattress topper, or maybe a soft dog bed, but not a hard floor.
- Babies like to sleep between their parents if parents sleep together. However, this is more dangerous because two people can hit them. At least, they won’t fall off the bed.
It is usually best for babies to sleep to one side of the parents. Babies may prefer the mother’s side or may prefer the father’s side, and this can change over time.
Naps. Ideally, mother or father and baby lie down together for a nap, or they both sit in a rocking chair or recliner or other comfortable chair and both take a nap together. Make sure the baby won’t fall out of the bed or out of your arms and onto the floor. This occurs often and causes a lot of harm to babies.
Multiple babies. If you have twin babies or two babies of different ages, the sleeping situation is more complex. Usually, one will sleep on the father’s side and one on the mother’s side. But do not put your babies in a separate room, ever. If you cannot sleep with them, put them in a secure crib with high sides if the baby can stand up and put it right next to your bed!
Pets. Also, make sure that pets such as cats and small dogs or other animals can never get into a baby’s crib. They can harm a baby a lot – scratch out their eyes or bite them or worse.
Animals. Animals can be helpful for babies provided that:
- they are very gentle
- someone must watch constantly to make sure the animal does not harm the child.
- licking from animals can easily spread infections. Discourage this habit of some animals. Preferably, feed animals the food recommended on this website in the Dogs and Cats articles. They will be much healthier and this is extremely helpful for babies, as well, for safety and less spreading of disease.
Anorexia (no or little apetite). This is rarely a problem for babies. If it occurs, the baby is ill. Put your baby on a development program. This will usually cause a great increase in appetite because your baby will be able to taste, smell and digest milk or food much better.
Other possible causes for no appetite are problems with the breast milk, trouble suckling at the breast, or occasionally other birth defects or problems. This might require a doctor’s help.
At times, you are just feeding the baby or child the wrong food and the child does not want it.
Antibiotics. These can be life-saving, but are also one of the most toxic and harmful groups of medical drugs. Thousands of prescriptions are given to babies, damaging their livers, kidneys and intestinal tracts often for life. If a baby is fed correctly on breast milk, and gets enough rest and sleep, antibiotics are rarely needed.
We know it is always scary when a baby is sick. Babies get high fevers, coughs, and rashes a lot. However, don’t run to antibiotics, please. Natural methods are often very effective on babies in cases of infections. One of the best is 1 to 3 tablets daily of Limcomin, a product from Endomet Labs in Phoenix, AZ (1-800-528-4067). It is a combination of minerals and vitamins that works well and is much better than most herbs and other natural products for infections.
Attention. Your baby needs a lot of attention, especially the first year, unless he or she is tired, sleeping, or resting. Give babies plenty of attention. They do not like crying while Mom just goes right on talking on the phone or driving the car.
If a baby cries, he or she usually wants attention. Something needs to be communicated to you - the diaper is soiled, or the baby needs a nap, or needs feeding. Their needs are simple. They also need lots of love, of course. Read about Love later in the article.
As babies turns two years of age and after, they can entertain themselves more, though they still need attention, of course.
Baby Attacks. Babies today have to deal with many hazards. Some are discussed in this article. For more details, read Baby Attacks.
Babysitters. This can spell trouble for babies. As they grow older and can speak up and defend themselves, at least a little, it is not so bad. But with babies, please be very wary with whom you leave them, and do not do it a lot, ever.
For example, rather than go to to the movies outside the house, bring your entertainment into the house and stay with your baby. Bring your friends to the house, rather than go to their house. Tell them to bring their baby, perhaps, but do not go out on “adult nights”, please. It is quite dangerous for babies.
As a general rule, babies do not like babysitters! Here is why:
1. For most of them, it is just a job. They don’t like babies much, and babies are sensitive to this. They need love, and not just someone to watch them and call you if something goes wrong.
2. Some are sick and babies catch their colds, flu, and other germs.
3. Some call their boyfriends or girlfriends, and completely ignore the baby. You would never know about this, but it happens more than you might think.
4. Some are strange and abusive. They can speak well and tell you that they are wonderful, but when you leave they start to talk strangely and act strangely. Rarely, a baby gets molested or raped. Please watch out! It could be with your best friend! Please do not use a lot of baby sitters, not even your mother or father, or your sister, brother, or best friend.
Baths. The trouble here is that most bathing water contains chlorine, and maybe lots of other toxins such as fluoride, toxic metals, and more. So please do not give your baby a lot of baths, unless you know your water is very pure, which is rare. Instead, sponge off your baby regularly. They generally prefer that, though splashing around is always fun for a little while.
Beds. Babies (and everyone else, too) will be healthier if their beds are arranged so that the baby’s head is pointing toward the nearest pole of the earth. For example, if one lives in the Northern hemisphere, the head of the bed should be facing North, or at least close to it. If one lives in the Southern hemisphere, the head of the bed should face to the South.
The Bible. This is an excellent book to read to babies and children. Babies like stories. Those in the Bible teach many good moral lessons. It is never to early to begin.
Birth. Most babies like the birth room to be out of the main hospital, if at all possible, to avoid infections. They like it warm, quiet, friendly and not too light. They also love underwater births, if you can find someone knowledgeable to help you with it.
Dads. They also love fathers to be around the birth. They love fathers to be around all the time! Don’t shoo him away, and fathers - take the day off when your baby arrives. You will love babies if you give them a chance. They scream sometimes, and they need mother’s breast milk, but they need and want fathers. See Dads for more info on this.
Drugs. If a mother needs drugs for the birth, okay, but don’t rush to them. Instead, relax and push hard and long. This does not harm the baby.
Episiotomies sometimes help, but usually are not needed and just prolong a mother’s recovery. So discourage those.
Birth attendants. Have a birth attendant, midwife or doula ALWAYS, to look over the shoulder of the doctor, if you have one, and make sure he or she is doing everything right.
Large babies. Hopefully, the baby is not too large coming out. A development program followed all during pregnancy makes for a smaller baby – 5 pounds is fine. Don’t listen to the doctors that think that is too small. Most babies are toxic and malnourished because the mothers are the same way. One of the symptoms is they are too big. This is a yin condition, which means expanded. For details about this, read Yang and Yin.
Preparation. Mom needs to be prepped and ready and has studied Lamaze or other birthing breathing techniques. For more details, read Pregnancy.
Birthday parties. Babies love those, for some unknown reason. Perhaps they like celebrating coming to earth.
Please keep the candy, cookies and cake away, however. Not even carrot cake or almond cookies! No frosting on anything, either. It is all junk food that is absolutely no good for any baby! Ideally, skip the food altogether.
If you must serve some adult food to the older babies only, make it plain onion soup, or blue corn chips, or almond butter on rice crackers (and not rice cakes, please – more junk). No nuts for babies, either. They can’t chew them well. Breast milk is always best, providing mother is on a complete development program, which is a must for her to have good milk.
Instead of food, how about just bringing over some friends and maybe family and having some music playing, a present or two (no need for a lot of them that usually just break, anyway. Please read about Presents later in this article.)
Birth defects. The birth defect rate has doubled in the United States in the past 60 years or so. It has increased in other nations, as well. This is mainly or totally due to mothers who are in poor health. This describes most girls and young women.
We suggest a development program – and not just visiting a holistic doctor, naturopath, homeopath, herbs, or random vitamins. Most of the time, this approach is too haphazard and not enough. At times, it is quite dangerous.
Also, please avoid vegetarian, raw food and vegan diets (the worst). Other diets are not much better such as Weston Price, keto, paleo, fodmap and others.
We suggest to begin with a development program now, as it can take a few years to remineralize, renourish and balance your body deeply to prepare for pregnancy.
Blankets. Babies love blankets, especially with the satin-feeling edges. So give babies blankets to play with. Small, synthetic ones are fine, and they need to be washed often to be clean, since they will go in their mouths. Don’t be afraid of blankets.
Boys. Male babies like a set of cardboard blocks, and they like guns, for some reason. Please don’t worry about it. They will outgrow the gun phase, as with most things.
Breastfeeding. This is essential, of course. Never rush a feeding! It is really bad for babies. Just relax and be late for your appointment, if necessary. You must relax at feedings or the milk won’t flow, or it will taste foul. Spend about 10 minutes on one breast, and then switch to the other. Keep switching back and forth until the feeding is over.
Usually, a feeding should take about an hour or less, unless your baby is having problems feeding. If the baby screams when you take him or her away from the breast, it may mean the baby is not done yet. Babies are pretty good at judging when they have had enough, so please listen to your baby about this.
If the nipples get sore, talk to your friends about it and use Udder Cream or some other preparation. Do not use toxic drugs, please! If a nipple gets infected, take care of it fast with colloidal silver, if possible, or other natural remedies rather than take antibiotics. These are toxic for you and for your baby, so the less of them, the better – and ideally, use none of them.
If you don’t have enough milk, drink more water and eat more, and maybe try a little fenugreek or blessed thistle to increase milk production. Put your baby to the breast and allow him or her to suck, and this, too, will increase milk production within a few days.
Why babies may not breastfeed well:
1. Digestive or other problems of the baby.
2. Anorexia (poor appetite) due to low zinc in the baby.
3. Bad-tasting breast milk due to dietary or other problems of the mother.
4. Stress – psychological, emotional or other such as loud noise in the home.
5. Less commonly, nutritional supplements or herbs in the mother that upset the baby’s digestion or something else.
6. Tongue tie (see that section, please)
7. Other - malnutrition, toxicity, or diseases of the mother.
If you can’t breastfeed or have any other problem with feeding, DON’T GIVE UP. La Leche League International is one source of advice, except they tell mothers to add solid food after 6-12 months, which is not good advice if the mother is on a development program.
Milk banks. If you cannot breastfeed, look into milk banks. They are spreading around the world. They are just an exchange network with mothers that have too much milk and want to share it. It is usually safe. The only problem is that most mothers are not on a development program, so the milk is not that great. But it might be better than nothing, even to mix a little with the natural baby formula described below.
If all that fails, too, then only use the Natural Baby Formula on this website – either the milk formula or the meat formula, or alternate them. Do not give most commercial formula to your baby. It is like taking your baby to a McDonald’s restaurant – it is junk! For more, read Breastfeeding.
Breast pumps. These are fine to use, and give mothers a break and let fathers do some feeding, which is wonderful. Thumbs up on these.
Candy. None at all. Don’t give in to your baby’s tantrums, screaming, or crying when the other babies get their candy and other junk food. Tell your baby it is for their own good, and it is because you love your baby.
Instead, give babies a little cream or a cooked carrot, which babies tend to love. You may need to negotiate a little with a baby. However, you are the parents and you are in charge. That should be made clear to your baby. Babies feel very insecure when parents give up their responsibility and just let their babies do what they want, and even just let them roam around with a dirty face and a dirty bottom. NO GOOD!
Impose the rules, but do it gently and explain it all to your baby. When the baby or child asks a question, don’t say, “Because I said so” or “None of your business”. Just explain as best you can and leave it there.
For instruction, an unusual suggestion is to buy or rent reruns of The Andy Griffith Show. It is an old television series about a father, Andy, and his little boy, Opie. He treats the child very well. These are sold on DVD.
Do not treat your baby like they do in the newer TV shows that are produced by total idiots or people who hate children, sadly.
Treats. These are not usually needed and it is best not to condition a baby to want or need them. No fruit or fruit popsicles, please. Some parents freeze carrot juice to make a popsicle snack. This is okay, but still very sweet for babies and not recommended. Skip the sugar or other sweetener altogether, and don’t add fruit, instead. See Ice Cream below for a recipe.
Carriers. Some of the baby carriers that mothers and fathers wear are not good. However, others are great. Backpacks are not as good as the ones that go in front. And be sure they do not cramp the baby’s legs. Strollers are usually fine.
Car seats. Some are much more comfortable than others, so check around and ask your friends before buying one that cuts the baby’s legs.
Cartoons on TV or elsewhere. Most are inane and stupid and should not be part of your baby’s “mental diet”. They do love some of them, however. Snoopy the dog and Charlie Brown are not too bad. So check them out carefully and don’t expose your baby to the insanely stupid ones, including the Muppets. Generally, avoid the socialist/communist cartoons on the Public Broadcasting Networks.
Instead, babies like TV programs about animals, in particular, and ones about plants, beautiful scenery, programs about angels and elves, trips around the world and into outer space, and they like good science programs, but not stupid ones.
Also, please limit TV viewing to one hour daily – a hard and fast rule for young babies. More is not good. If Dad or Mom has to watch their favorite programs, then arrange your baby on your lap so they cannot see it, though they will hear the drone.
Clothing. A few rules:
1.Baby’s skin is often very sensitive. If possible, buy natural fiber clothing inside and out, but mainly inside against the skin. It can be cotton, linen or maybe a blend with a little synthetic fabric if you want. (No need for silk.)
2. None, or as few chemicals as possible. Arm & Hammer laundry detergent is better than most others (2019). Detergents are somewhat toxic, even if the label says “baby safe, plain and fragrance free”.
3. Please do not overdress babies. Many parents do this, thinking it will prevent a cold. It might, but if babies are hot and sweaty, then it is too much clothing. It damages the baby’s skin. Read about it in the section called Skin later on in this article.
Colds. Babies get colds, now and then. Please do not run to the doctor every time. It is usually not necessary at all, and at the doctor your baby will be given toxic drugs that are much worse than the cold itself.
Instead, keep your baby warm, hydrated, and happy. Most colds, flus and other childhood illnesses, as they are called, will pass easily on their own. If your baby is on a development program, which is hopefully the case, the colds and flu will pass even faster and more easily.
Constipation. This is hard on babies. Give a constipated baby about 1/4th of teaspoon of Epsom salts, dissolved in some breast milk, other milk or cream. It works and is harmless. Then find out why your baby is constipated, as it is not normal. The usual reasons are:
1. Breast milk is too thick because Mom does not drink enough water, or drinks the wrong kind of water, or follows the dehydration diet (which is to use ANY caffeine, sugar, fruit, juice or alcohol). Please stop these so your breast milk has enough water in it.
If you can’t stop your coffee, which we encourage you to stop, or the constipation continues, then give your baby some plain water and the Epsom salts.
NEVER GIVE BABIES JUICE, SODA POP, COFFEE OR REGULAR TEA. These are horrible for your baby! Also, do not give babies almond milk, soy milk, hemp milk or other nut or seed milks, either. These do not hydrate the body well, and they are cheap substitutes for real breast milk.
2. Your baby might need more Paramin or magnesium. Both tend to be laxative and ALL babies need Paramin (a calcium/magnesium supplement). Give your baby too much and he or she will soil the diapers too much, even though their bowel movements should be fairly soft.
3. Your baby may need SBF (a product from Endomet Labs). Most need this supplement badly. It contains magnesium and copper, both of which can help with constipation.
4. If your baby is eating adult food, which hopefully he or she is not, then you are probably feeding your baby incorrectly. Please read the section below called Diet for the rules for feeding adult food to a baby.
We don’t agree with many of the doctors, even the natural ones, on this subject of the diet for babies.
Coughs and Respiratory infections. Babies get these often, even the babies of mothers who follow a development program. Please don’t worry about these.
Give some Limcomin, use a red heat lamp on the back and chest, keep the baby comfortable, and it is always fine to rub the lung and bronchial reflex areas of the feet. Just do this for about 30 seconds at a time, repeated every few hours. It can help a lot and is very safe and enjoyable.
Be sure the baby has enough water or breast milk to drink when ill, since a baby can become dehydrated. You can tell because the baby’s lips and mouth may become dry.
Temperature. When ill, check your baby’s temperature every few hours and make sure it is not over 103 degrees F. or about 39.5 degrees C. If it gets higher, sponge off the baby with cool water, or put the baby in a bath with cooler water to cool us down. DO NOT USE ASPIRIN OR TYLENOL. These are quite toxic drugs. They are bad for babies!
There is nothing wrong with fever as long as it does not get over about 104 F. So do not try to suppress it. The fever actually helps the baby’s body fight off the germs.
Vaccines. Please do not vaccinate babies, unless you want to risk autism, paralysis and even death. A baby who is fed and cared for properly can handle whooping cough, diphtheria, measles, mumps and the rest of the childhood diseases just fine if you follow the directions in this article. Once again, no vaccines. Read the articles on Vaccines and the Vaccine Horror Story on this site for more on why vaccines are a very bad idea.
Crying. Babies cry now and then. A healthy, happy baby does not cry much. If a baby cries a lot, something may be wrong. Your baby would love to tell you about it, but it takes a few years to learn language.
Common causes for crying are hunger or thirst, a soiled diaper, constipation, a drug reaction, vaccines, fear, and sometimes aches and pains.
Avoid colic by feeding correctly and relaxing completely at feeding time. Never hurry a feeding, as this can be enough to cause colic and crying.
Babies also try to communicate with you telepathically all the time. If you don’t hear it, you are probably too preoccupied with your work, friends, sex, etc. But the babies do communicate.
Rocking. Babies love rocking, for some unknown reason. Try rocking a baby in your arms if the baby is crying. Of course, also find out why the baby is crying, if possible.
Cuddling. Babies love cuddling – no question about it. Here is why. Babies are in bodies that they cannot control very well. Young ones cannot speak, cannot walk, and cannot do most things that adults can do. What is there to do? Babies eat, sleep, poo and pee. It is somewhat boring.
Cuddling gives babies a chance to work on their own healing, and on yours. Don’t ever think that your baby is not helping you. They are! But usually they need to be very close to you in order to do it. So let them get close. They usually don’t smell bad, unless they need a clean diaper, and you will benefit more than you might imagine. It is an extra benefit of having a baby around.
Daycare. Please, no. Please keep babies home, if at all possible. We know that is tough for some working mothers, but please listen. Here are the problems with day care:
1. Junk food. Mom isn’t there to feed her baby, of course.
2. Junk day care workers who really don’t care much, even though they often say they do. Some treat babies roughly, and babies feel the lack of love.
3. Germs. The other kids are often sick, and babies put everything in their mouths at certain ages.
Development. This is a precise process that is programmed genetically into all human beings. A few babies are born somewhat developed, but most are not.
The reason most babies are not born developed very much is that the mothers are not well enough nourished. The correct nutrition will speed up development. This is a great advantage because it results in a stronger immune response, better thinking, better coordination, more strength, better digestion and other health improvements. For details, read Introduction To Development on this website.
Development programs for babies. All babies can use a development program at about the age of 4 months, even if their mothers are on a program, which hopefully they are. In fact, mom must be on a program when breastfeeding, or the milk stinks, literally.
Getting a hair mineral test is best to set up a personalized program. However, if a) baby does not have enough hair or b) money is tight, the baby can start with the basic development programs below. These are not too bad if funds are tight:
The basic fourth month program (four to twelve months of age):
(The product names below are from Endomet Laboratories, Phoenix, Arizona)
1. Limcomin (or copper 0.75 mg, manganese 5 mg and zinc 8 mg) 1/8 AM and 1/8 PM.
2. Paramin (or calcium 200 mg and magnesium 120 mg) ¼ AM and ¼ PM
3. SBF (or magnesium 200 mg and copper 1 mg) 1/8 to ¼ per day.
4. Red Heat Lamp therapy: 1-2 minutes daily.
5. Foot Rubs: Two daily, 10 minutes each, every day.
The basic one year program (twelve to twenty-four months of age):
1. Limcomin ¼ AM and ¼ PM
2. Paramin ¼ AM and ¼ PM
3. SBF ¼ AM
4. Red Heat Lamp: 3 minutes daily.
5. Foot Rubs: Two daily, 10 minutes each, every day. This is very important.
The basic two year program (twenty-four months to thirty-six months of age):
1. Limcomin ¼ AM and ½ PM
2. Paramin ¼ AM and ½ PM
3. SBF ¼ AM
4. Red Heat Lamp: 4-5 minutes daily.
5. Foot Rubs: Two daily, 10 minutes each, every day.
The basic three year program (36 months to 48 months of age):
1. Limcomin ½ AM and ½ PM
2. Paramin ½ AM and ½ PM
3. SBF ¼ AM and ¼ PM
4. Red Heat Lamp: 5 minutes daily.
5. Foot Rubs: Two daily, 10 minutes each, every day.
These programs will work for most babies, though some babies will need special modifications. Do the program every day, come rain or shine. However, reduce the program or stop it altogether when a baby has a cold or flu. Usually, it is less needed at these times.
How to take supplements. An easy way is to grind up the supplements for the day in the morning. Add half the powder to some cream or milk in the morning and give it to your baby. Give the other half of the powder to the baby in a little cream or milk in the afternoon or evening.
Developmental Delays. These are sadly common today. Causes include:
1. Poor health of the mother. This is almost universal if she is not on a development program.
2. Vaccination. Please read the Vaccination section later in this article! The health authorities lie and deceive the public about this issue!
3. Imbalanced body chemistry of the baby. This is very common, even if a baby looks healthy on the outside.
4. Other, such as medical drugs, in some cases, such as antibiotics, improper diet such as feeding a baby sugars, fruit in any form, or adult food too early. Rarely, there are other causes.
A development program. Over 1000 babies have turned around and become normal children or super kids with a development program. This is not a brag – it is a plea! You can put a baby on a development program, starting about age 3 to 4 months. Keep the child on the program all during childhood.
Please be careful. A development program is very different from naturopathy, homeopathy, herbs, and other nutrition programs, although it might seem similar. Also, beware of pediatricians and others who will tell you that all vitamin programs are stupid (although many of them are), or that hair mineral tests are inaccurate or a waste of money.
Diapers. Most babies do not like synthetic or plastic diapers. They often chemicals are toxic and smelly. Most prefer natural and soft diapers, either the pants or the old fashioned type.
Don’t leave babies with wet diapers. Babies know they stink, although a healthy baby does not have the worst smelling poo. Change the diaper when your baby cries, when you smell it, or if you can feel it. Soon they will use the toilet, so don’t fret.
Diarrhea. This is not common in healthy, breastfed babies. Bowel movements should be soft, but not runny.
Causes in breastfed babies. Causes for diarrhea among breastfed infants include:
1. Problems with the breast milk, especially if mother is not on a development program.
2. Feeding too fast for some reason, such as if Mom wants to go shopping and tells the baby you only have 15 minutes to feed.
3. An anxious or upset mother during a feeding, for any reason at all. She might need to go to the bathroom, for example. She should stop feeding and relieve herself, and then continue. This is important and occurs all the time!
4. If your baby drank contaminated water, which some parents give babies even when breastfeeding is going on. Usually, by the way, drinking water is not needed and not a good idea if a baby is breastfeeding. Babies need nutrition, not water, in most cases. For much more on giving babies water, please see the Water section of this article.
5. A stomach virus or flu.
Remedies for diarrhea. If you and/or your baby is on a development program, call your Helpers and ask that we check on your baby and advise what to do.
Use antibiotics as a last resort, and not first. Read the section in this article on Antibiotics before using them.
In most cases, your baby will not be hungry. Do not force food on a baby when that baby is ill, in almost all cases. Just let your baby rest. You may gently use a red heat lamp on the stomach area, and rub the feet well several times a day. The diarrhea will usually subside in a day or two, and that is all there is to it.
You could also give your baby one or two charcoal tablets (open the tablet and mix it with a little water – not milk.) This can absorb some poisons. Never continue with charcoal tablets, however. Give them only for a day or two.
Causes of diarrhea in babies eating adult food. Causes include eating the wrong food or contaminated food, drinking bad water, too much food, eating too fast, drinking anything with the food, terrible food combinations, an upset mother, an upset baby, or a stomach infection, viral flu or parasites, at times.
Beware of food sensitivities in babies. These often cause diarrhea and many other health problems for babies. If the mother is on a development program, often babies prefer only breast milk for about 3 years. However, add about ¼ of a runny egg yolk daily after about age 1. Add ½ of a runny egg yolk after about age 2. Soft boil the egg for 3 minutes so the yolk is still runny.
If breast milk does not work for your baby, you will have to test various substitutes, none of which are as good.
The first thing to do if your non-breastfed baby gets diarrhea is to stop all food for a few hours, at least. This lets the digestion rest. A little water is okay, and it must be clean water! NO reverse osmosis water, though. Spring water is best in almost all cases. Tap water is often okay if you filter it with carbon only, not other filters.
Rub your baby’s feet, especially the middle of the bottom of the feet, which is the digestive reflex area. Also, shine a red heat lamp on the abdomen for 10 minutes, about once an hour. This will help in many cases, and it will be over soon.
As for remedies, which are sometimes helpful, charcoal is very good. It is non-toxic and gentle for babies, unlike antibiotics that are extremely harsh and toxic. So give a charcoal tablet ground up in water, or open a capsule in a little water, one a day in small babies and up to two daily in 2 or 3 year olds. Do not continue this for more than 2 days, however.
Occasionally, a baby needs a little plain, life culture yogurt. As mentioned earlier, Limcomin from Endomet Labs is also very good for all infections. Babies up to 1 year old can take up to 1 tablet ground up in some water every day (spread it out). Babies up to 2 years of age, or older, can usually take 2 per day, spread out and ground up.
Very important! If diarrhea does not subside in three days, or is severe, or if you believe something serious is wrong, go to the doctor because diarrhea kills babies easily, much more easily than it kills adults. Parasites, for example, may require extra procedures. If your baby is on a development program, which we hope is the case, then parasites usually go away on their own, and drugs should not be needed, but you may have to do some extra procedures.
We assume you are not violating the rules by feeding fruit, juices, bread, or any sweets or junk food or chemicalized food to your baby. This is absolutely prohibited!
Most of the time, diarrhea will subside. Use antibiotics only as a last resort, and preferably never.
Diet for babies. Please read this section many times!
Breast milk is best. If you are feeding adult food, it should be the preferred vegetables cooked until they are soft and a little shredded meat. NO FRUIT, NO NUTS, NO SALAD and DO NOT MIX LIQUIDS SUCH AS MILK WITH SOLID FOOD AT THE SAME MEAL. Instead, have one or the other at a meal. The reasons for all this are explained in the diet articles on this website such as Food For Daily Use.
EPA and DHA are critical for brain development. These chemicals, also called omega-3 fatty acids, are vital for all babies. Most babies are born too low in them because their mothers are deficient.
They will only be present in breast milk if the mother takes a supplement of 900 mg of EPA and DHA (not 900 mg of fish or some other oil) or eats 3-4 cans of sardines every week.
Salmon and tunafish are also good sources of EPA and DHA. However, in our view, they are much too toxic for regular consumption. You will poison yourself and your baby with mercury if you eat these fish.
If you feed commercial formula or adult food to a baby, you may need to give a baby a supplement if you want a baby with a good brain and healthy body.
On development programs, we also find that after around age 5, all children need a supplement of EPA-DHA, about 250 mg per day.
Breastfeeding. Feed breast milk, if at all possible, for three years or more if your baby wants it. Don’t be lazy, mothers! It matters.
If possible, do not add adult food at all until your baby is at least two years old, and preferably not until baby is three. The reason doctors recommend stopping breast feeding earlier is that most mothers’ milk is not that nutritious because of the malnourished condition of the mothers. However, if the mother is on a development program (not other nutrition programs), then most of the time the breast milk with be very adequate and is better than switching to adult food before around age 3.
If breastfeeding is impossible, and only in this situation, use natural homemade formula. For information how to make baby formula, read Baby Formula You Make At Home on this website.
Once it is weaning time, the diet is to be mainly cooked – not raw – vegetables, and a little chicken, lamb or natural beef. Most babies are fast oxidizers, so they should not eat grains or bread at all, or very little.
Puree without adding water. Always shred meat for babies, along with shredding or pureeing everything else.
When you puree, use a fork to mash the food. Do not mix food with water in a blender or food processor. Mixing food with water dilutes the stomach acid and is hard on digestion. Your baby may cry out in pain or have diarrhea, and you’ll start on the antibiotic merry-go-round that ends in chronic disease.
Other important diet rules. No juice at all! It is very bad for your baby. It speeds up the oxidation rate, damages the teeth, and can create a fat little baby who is sick all the time.
Also remember - very little grain because most babies are fast oxidizers, and they don’t need or do well on a lot of grains. Grains tend to make babies very constipated.
Also, no wheat. It is hybridized and is very irritating to all babies. That means no bread at all, please. Serving bread is also one of the fastest ways to constipate your baby.
Also, no Mcdonald’s or other fast food, no matter how much your baby or child wants it! Not even for a treat once. It is addictive, on purpose, and it is JUNK!
Also, do not allow your baby to drink anything with meals, except maybe for a few sips of water if he or she insists. Drink water only an hour after eating. Drinking water with meals dilutes the stomach acid and interferes with digestion.
Give your baby water (ideally spring water), not soda pop, juices, or even much herbal tea. Water is a whole food and a complex substance. That is why spring water that comes from the earth and has not been tampered with, is usually best.
For nutritional supplement suggestions, see the Development Program section of this article.
Dogs. Many babies do not like dogs. They are too big, too hairy and dirty, too licky, and can hurt babies without meaning to. When the child is about 4 or older, a gentle dog is wonderful, but be careful with younger babies.
Down’s syndrome. Please put any Down’s syndrome baby on a development program at 3-4 months of age. Do not wait! This is critical. While it may sound unusual, we find that if you do this, your baby will do very well and perhaps be absolutely normal.
AVOID OTHER NUTRITION PROGRAMS, PLEASE. They do not work nearly as well. It has to be a development program, and only with one of our practitioners listed on this website. To find them, CLICK HERE.
Drugs – medical. This is a critical topic. Do not give babies drugs, or most herbs, for that matter. Instead, please use the suggestions in this article for common conditions such as infections, constipation, diarrhea, rashes and most baby problems. If a condition is not listed here, check other articles on this website, or email us for advice at Contact Us.
Ear Infections. These are quite common in some children, especially those who are not fed correctly or whose body is out of balance. A development program will usually take care of them, and prevent them in the future.
The diet must be corrected! Pasteurized cows milk can be a culprit, in some cases. So can other dairy products in children who are allergic to them. This is often a simple fix for repeated ear infections.
Antibiotics are very rarely needed, and they do nothing to correct the underlying causes. Medical studies show that the use of antibiotics for childhood ear infections increase the likelihood of future ear infections.
Better remedies for ear infections include:
1. Correct the diet, and especially eliminate any foods to which your baby or older child is sensitive. The most common ones are dairy, and wheat or gluten, in some cases.
2. Shine a red heat lamp near the ear for about 1 minute. Do this 7 or more times every day for up to a week. Done right, it won’t hurt your child at all, and it helps move the infection out.
3. Rub the ear reflex areas on the feet, and even on the hands of your child. These are found at the tips of the third and fourth toes. Push firmly. It might hurt a bit, but it helps. Always do the toes on both feet, even if only one ear is inflamed.
4. Another remedy is Limcomin from Endomet Labs. Babies just need about 1 tablet daily, split into at least two parts. Older children need more, up to about 3 or 4 per day split into several parts.
5. Another remedy is vitamin A, especially if you don’t have Limcomin, which contains vitamin A. If the capsule contains 10,000 international units (IU) of vitamin A, a baby needs only ¼ daily up to age 1, ½ daily up to age 2, and 1 daily if older A five-year-old needs two daily. A ten-year-old needs at least 3 daily. To give part of a capsule, just open it with a knife and put some on the baby’s tongue. Natural vitamin A from fish oil is best and tastes best.
6. Please do not remove the tonsils and adenoids for repeated infections of any kind. Tonsils will clear up on a correct feeding and development program.
Surgery is not necessary and is extremely scary for a young child. A child with infections needs a whole development program to correct imbalances in body chemistry.
Eczema. Many babies have eczema today. It is most often an elimination of poisons that came from their mother’s body.
In our experience, a development program gets rid of it easily, in all cases. The fewer creams and lotions you put on your baby’s skin, the better. Please avoid cortisone cream the doctors prescribe, if possible, as it is toxic and just a temporary band-aid remedy.
Elementary school. Ideally, avoid all schools. They can be dangerous for your baby or toddler. Instead, home school your baby and your older child, as well.
Any parent can do this because new technology and the internet makes all the school materials available to anyone, often at no charge or for a low fee, and organizes everything for you.
You don’t need a PhD, mothers, to do this. Just a little caring for your child. Problems with schools, at any age, are:
1. Studies show that classroom learning moves much slower than individual instruction. Put differently, school is a giant waste of a child’s time.
2. Poor quality food is very hard to avoid and you don’t control the food. It is in the cafeteria and even in the classrooms. Even if the school “prohibits” junk food, often the cafeteria serves it. Even if it does not, all the other kids talk their mothers into giving them candy and cookies for lunch, and it hard to resist. This is a difficult problem!
3. Children pick up lots of infections from other children and teachers.
4. Most schools, especially public schools, teach the secular, liberal agenda, political correctness, communist and left-wing lies and propaganda.
Schools have lost their way, in many cases. Children learn foul language, and all about how to rape the girls and use marijuana. This is the truth, Moms and Dads. Please do not doubt it!
5. Schools are the scene of fights, bullying, humiliation, sexual attacks in the bathroom, and more that children are sometimes afraid of telling parents about because they won’t believe it, or they will think their child is a chicken. Please keep children out of schools!
Exercise. Babies need some exercise, but not a lot. Babies should crawl around, and soon they learn to walk and it is hard to keep them still.
Please do not listen to “experts” who preach that more exercise is better. We find that if you feed your baby and child correctly, he or she will not be fat.
Older children also need some exercise. However, we do not recommend team sports. They are good for some children, but the workouts are too much for some children who are not very healthy.
We think that girls’ sports are a very bad idea. We are not male chauvinist. Statistics show that too often rape occurs due to mixing with boys at meets, wearing skimpy outfits, hanging around locker rooms and after-game parties.
Fast oxidation. This is a term used to describe the metabolic type of almost all babies. It is important because a lot is known about this metabolic type. For example, sugar, honey, fruit and fruit juices are very harmful, even moreso than for adults, who are mainly slow oxidizers. Anything sweet tends to throw the body chemistry of babies much further out of balance.
Fast oxidizers also need some fat or oil with every meal. Mothers milk is rich in fat. If a baby or child is eating adult food, cream, for example, is excellent for them.
Some parents do not want to give fats to their babies, thinking it will make them fat. This is absolutely not true, provided the diet is correct, with plenty of cooked vegetables.
Withholding fats and oils from fast oxidizers makes them much more irritable, out of balance, and eventually makes them ill.
Fatherhood. Babies need their fathers. Never contemplate divorce once your baby has been born, please, unless circumstances are absolutely impossible between mother and father. Your baby needs both of you, preferably together.
Fathers, never feel you are the “third wheel”, “not needed”, “in the way”, “awkward”, “clumsy”, or any of that rot. It is not true. Mothers tend to have more experience with babies, and that is all! Babies need their father’s energy around them all the time.
Fathers, take your baby for a stroll or walk. Talk to them. Play with them gently. Cuddle up with them. You’ll love it – you will see.
Feeding schedules. Normally, babies need to eat about every four hours, regardless of age. Do not put babies to the breast more often than this, unless your baby wails and screams, and it becomes clear the baby is hungry and nothing else is going on.
However, please watch out for rigid schedules! A baby may need to eat a little more food one day, and less the next day. So please be flexible with the feeding schedule.
Fever. This is one of the scariest symptoms in babies and children. The body uses fever to burn off toxins and to kill germs of all kinds.
Fevers are normal and healthy, unless they are too high – above 103 F. Don’t try to lower them unless they are very high. Causes for fevers are:
1. Feeding problems, such as the wrong diet, too much food, bad food combinations, or something else.
2. A cold, a flu, an infection or some other bug. Perhaps your baby got too cold, or maybe he or she just needs to burn off some toxins that were in the body from birth, or that got in after the birth.
What to do. Many fevers will go away on their own, and you don’t need to do anything. Always keep your baby well-hydrated with water, never juice.
To lower a fever, here are the rules:
1. If it is less than about 103 degrees F. or about 39.5 degrees C., you don’t need to do anything. Remember, fever is the way babies burn off toxins or kill bugs. However, sponging with a cool, damp washcloth is fine.
2. If it gets higher, the best way to reduce it a little is not Tylenol or Aspirin. Those are horrible, almost as bad as antibiotics.
3. If you want to lower a fever, sponge babies off with cool water only. Some people say to add a little rubbing alcohol to the water, and this will work better, but it is harsh on a baby’s skin.
Another method that is more powerful is to put the baby in a tepid bath and slowly add cold water.
Another safe method is administer a coffee enema. This is actually easy with a baby. The fever will likely rise again, but that is okay. It is just burning off the toxins, in most cases. So do the procedure again, and you can sponge off or do a bath at least three times daily, if needed.
4. Rub the baby’s feet once every hour for about 5 minutes on each foot. You may be surprised at the results. (see foot reflexology below)
5. See the rules for infections in this article to get at the cause.
6. Any fever that is 104 F. or over may require a doctor visit.
Foot rubs (reflexology). This is wonderful for all babies!! We cannot say enough good things about this simple, but powerful procedure. It usually feels good, it is perfectly safe, and most important, it is a remedy for almost all health conditions of babies.
All babies and all children want and need at least two foot rubs daily. You can also rub the hands. For instructions on how to do it, read Reflexology on this website.
Friends. Babies do not need or want friends in the same way that adults like friends. In fact, too many children in one place is not healthful for babies or young children. Your baby or young child can become confused by the energy of other children.
Some babies have invisible friends. Parents, please allow this and don’t tell babies and young children to stop talking to themselves. For more details, read the Telepathy section of this article.
Fruit. We know – many health authorities recommend fruit. Do not feed it to your baby or child, please. There are at least eight reasons for skipping ALL fruit and fruit juices. It is much too sugary, upsets blood sugar, damages teeth, and is particularly bad for fast oxidizers, which includes almost all babies. For details, please read Fruit-Eating on this site.
Fun. Babies like to have fun. This does not mean getting rough or loud. Fun is an attitude, a lightness and happiness. Babies are generally very happy to be on earth in the DNA configuration we call a human body. They want to play and enjoy. Keep it safe, and enjoy life with your baby.
Gender dysphoria. We find this is always due to an unbalanced body chemistry. Any child or adult who is struggling with this needs a development program, not hormones or sex-change surgery.
Girls. Girl babies are different from boys. Many love houses, doll houses, dolls, and sometimes a set of cardboard blocks. Girl babies are more sensitive than the boys, and this can be a problem, though it is really an advantage.
Herbs. Be careful about giving herbs to babies. We do not recommend most of them!
Herbs are all somewhat toxic. Some parents think they are wonderful because they are ‘natural’. They are somewhat less toxic than most drugs, but do not use a lot and do not use them continuously.
Houses, non-toxic. For the sake of your baby and for older children, as well, your home should be as non-toxic as possible. This means do not use smelly chemicals on the floors and carpets, especially.
Vinegar and water are safe cleaning agents, as is plain soap. We recommend Grandpa’s Pine Tar soap and Bon Ami for dishes and even for laundry.
Avoid detergents, which are all somewhat toxic. Also, always use non-toxic products for plant fertilizers, flea powders for the animals, and other cleaning needs. Your baby or child can get into many products and eat the whole thing. Please remember this and keep everything non-toxic.
Hugs. Babies enjoy hugs. Don’t hesitate to put your arms around your baby.
Humor. This is very helpful for babies, and for all children. Buy joke books and read from them. They help keep a light mood in the home, which is essential for your children’s health.
Babies naturally have a sense of humor, so they like keeping things light and laughing at things. This is one reason why cartoons appeal to babies and children. We don’t recommend most cartoons on television or elsewhere, but children like the light-hearted feeling of most cartoon figures.
Too much seriousness is actually confusing to babies, who understand that life is a grand adventure.
Hushabye Mountain. This is a wonderful song for babies. It is from the musical, Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang. Please play it often for your baby. It can help a baby or child go to sleep, and helps remind babies who they are.
Hydration. This is most important for babies. A baby with a fever or a baby who vomits more than once or twice will need more water.
Rehydrating a baby. This is important to do, especially if a baby is vomiting or for some other reason won’t drink water. Wet the corner of a piece of clean cloth in water and put it in the baby’s mouth. Let the baby suck on it. When it is somewhat dry, remove it and dip it again in the water and let the baby suck on it again.
This method can also be used with children and even adults. The alternative is much more traumatic for a baby – a visit to the doctor or emergency room for IV fluids.
Hypothyroid babies and children. These are becoming more common. In our experience, thyroid hormones are not needed if the baby or child is placed on a complete development program, which corrects the thyroid condition.
Infections. All babies get infections, now and then. A healthy baby gets fewer of them. If a baby spends time around other children, they will get a lot more infections, so limit the time around other children. This ideally includes keeping them away from schools and day care centers.
To help prevent infections, keep babies clean, although there is no reason for compulsive cleanliness. Bathe babies if they are dirty, and wash hands a lot. Keep them away from all germs.
However, do not use anti-bacterial soaps or most detergents, especially liquids. This includes laundry detergents, dish soaps and other cleaners. They are toxic. Just use regular, mild, simple soap. For details about safe home cleaning products, read Detergent Hazards.
Read the sections on antibiotics and fevers for much more on how to handle infections.
Instruments. Most children want to play musical instruments. It is a wonderful past time and a powerful healer, too. So make them available. They need not be costly or fancy, especially for the young children.
Children will need lessons, though. So set aside a little cash for this unless you can teach them, which is actually better than having a stranger teach them.
Integrity. As soon as your baby can talk, and even before, teach your baby to tell the truth, both to himself or herself, and to you. This is more important than you might think.
In the name of “political correctness”, “social justice”, “environmental justice”, “tolerance”, “diversity”, “moral relativism” and other names, the media and especially university professors teach that lying is okay.
This is pernicious and designed to weaken society. They are also teaching in school that there is not such thing as truth. Please teach your baby the opposite. Absolute truths do exist and you expect them to always tell the truth.
To teach truth, begin by not lying to your baby. If you catch yourself in little white lies, stop yourself and correct them. If a baby misbehaves, but tells the truth about it, do not punish the child nearly as much as if he or she misbehaves and then tries to cover it up by lying. Teach truth and integrity to your children of all ages, at all times, in all situations.
Juice for babies. A big NO on this. Juices are much too sugary for babies. Babies like them, of course, because they are sweet. However, they are not good for babies at all. So please, no juice, not even carrot juice, and not even diluted juices, please.
Instead, train your baby to like good quality water or a little sun tea without caffeine – but no juice.
Lifting babies. Never lift your baby by grabbing the legs or arms. This can dislocate a hip or shoulder or elbow. It also hurts.
If a baby is in a crib or in bed, bend over and pick up your baby or child by placing your arms around the waist. Do not just pull the baby up by the arms or legs. This sounds simple, but parents make this mistake all the time, and it is traumatic for babies.
Lotions and Creams. Do not use most lotions and creams on your baby’s skin. Most skin lotions and creams, even those designed for babies and the all-natural kinds, are toxic and clog up the skin badly.
If the skin is dry, cracked, itchy or a rash is present, a little aloe vera gel is excellent, or maybe some zinc oxide ointment. Then try to figure out the cause. Read the Eczema and Rashes sections of this article.
Mothers and motherhood. Raising your children is a sacred calling and one of the most important, if not the most important job that mothers and fathers will ever have. Try to see it this way, and not as a chore that you “have to do”.
Modern society often does not recognize this fact – a serious flaw in most of our mass media and elsewhere.
Mothers and fathers are a team. Please always work as a team. Don’t push dad away. Too many mothers think they know everything and dad is just in the way, asking questions, wondering if he’s changing the diaper right, and so on. Work with him. Don’t push him away. Babies need his energy, his calm, his male odor, and everything about him.
Please include dad in everything if you want a happy, healthy baby. Your baby really appreciates it when mother and father love and respect each other and cooperate wholeheartedly to raise the children.
Common problems mothers have today mainly have to do with poor health and improper living habits. Mothers are often tired, their milk is not too healthful, and in many cases they do not think clearly.
Rest. Many mothers need more sleep and rest. Otherwise they are crabby. Babies do not like this, and it easily harms their growth and development. Get a babysitter if you need to (read about Babysitters in this article, though) so that you are not resentful that you have to care for us. Whatever you do, try to be happy around your baby. They need that joy.
Diet. Most mothers need to eat many more cooked vegetables and stop the ice cream, cookies, candy and white flour products just to maintain their health.
Mothers (and fathers) also need to stop living on salads and fruit, even though many health authorities will tell you these are good foods. They are not, in our experience. Read the sections of this article on Fruit and Salads. All mothers really need to be on a development program now!
Distraction. Some mothers also focus too much on their friends, shopping for clothing, watching television, social media, surfing the net, and other pursuits instead of focusing on their baby. This is a matter of getting your priorities straight. Please pay attention to it and do not ‘follow the crowd’, which is often wrong.
Marriage issues. For the sake of your baby, please try hard to keep your marriage a happy one by getting help with it if you need it, and don’t just divorce as too many people do when problems arise.
Be very wary of most counselors and psychologists. Too many are liberals who hate men and don’t care or understand much about babies. Babies want and need one male and one female parent, if at all possible.
Keep breastfeeding. This is important, even if it hurts, sometimes. It can also be annoying, especially in public and around your friends, but do it. It works!
Much more could be said about mothers and the vital importance of motherhood. Perhaps this section will be expanded in the future.
Music. Soothing music is wonderful for babies. Waltzes and lullabies are excellent for young children, and especially babies. For something more lively, show music such as music from Broadway shows, is good. It is mostly light and happy music. Please discourage all loud rock and punk music at all ages. It should not be permitted at all, as it upsets the body.
Newborns. Handling newborns can be challenging the first few weeks, simply because they are new to the earth, and parents are new at being parents. This section is set up to help with this dilemma. While there are always a few rare exceptions, the instructions below work in almost all cases.
1. Moms need loads of rest. Try to have dad or someone else help out while mother rests.
2. Moms need to put their newborn to the breast as soon as possible. This is for bonding, to start the milk flowing, to relax, and to get used to their new life together.
3. Moms need dad’s cooperation with everything. Remember this, dad. Right after the birth, plan on doing the dishes, cooking meals, cleaning up, etc., for about a month. Some births are easy, but many tear mother apart and she will need at least a month to heal.
4. Moms need to get back on their development program as soon as possible, and do as much of it as she can. This is for healing, for breastfeeding, for mental clarity, and more.
5. Mother and child need to be out of the hospital or birthing center as soon as is humanly possible. This is to avoid infections, vaccinations, drugs, and many possible mishaps that occur daily in hospitals and even in birthing centers.
6. A red heat lamp shined on the vaginal area for half an hour daily is excellent for mothers. The genital bath daily may also be very helpful to assist healing in the vaginal area.
1. Before the birth of your baby, try to attend a birth class with your wife. Learn how to 1) change a diaper, 2) feed a newborn using a bottle filled hopefully with breast milk, 3) do other things such as rocking a baby, holding a baby properly, and maybe singing to a baby (babies like the deep male voice). Keep learning how to handle babies so you are not awkward around babies.
2. Birthing time is your day, too. So enjoy it and help out, and don’t be scared. Try to relax and help out.
3. At the birth, be available to help your wife, but also check everything and everyone frequently. Doctors sometimes make mistakes, and so do midwives and doulas. They forget things, they screw up with paperwork, they get tired out and don’t want to complete the job, and so on.
So your job #1, besides helping Mom, is to look over everyone’s shoulder and make sure all is well. If you think something is not right, you might be correct, so ask a lot of questions. Don’t hesitate to butt in and stop things if something is not going well. You might just save a baby’s life.
Especially watch out that they don’t vaccinate your baby in the hospital or birthing center! This is important, as they often destroy a baby’s health before the baby even gets home.
4. Dads need lots of rest, too. As has been said in this article many times, babies need their fathers! And they need them rested and happy, not crabby and short with them. So please get your sleep and rest during the birth and after. Eat correctly, and don’t skip meals. Be relaxed and ready to help.
5. Stay close by at all times, during the birth and at home afterwards. Try to take some time off work for a few days, if possible, so you can celebrate with your baby. He or she made it in! That is the first hard task of all babies.
The baby needs you. Do not just head back to the office or wherever you go. Also, do not hang out at the bar with your friends to celebrate. Celebrate with your baby only! Please, this matters.
Don’t listen to the crowd that says babies are for mothers. It is a big fat lie – all the way! Your baby needs your male energy at all times, if possible. Your baby will understand if you have to go to work, but you should apologize for leaving whenever you leave. That is a good habit to get into.
For your newborn:
- NO VACCINES. Arrange this ahead of time with the doctors, nurses, midwives, and everyone else associated with the birth. Sign papers so it is very clear and in writing. Tell them you will sue them for all they are worth if the orders are violated for any reason.
Home birth is best for this reason, as it is less likely some nurse will inject the baby without checking first.
- Keep Mom and newborn together after birth. Do not isolate your newborn in some incubator room unless it is absolutely needed, and then Dad must check in every five minutes or more. Isolation is very hard on both mother and child.
- Put the newborn to the breast shortly after birth. The newborn may or may not be ready to suck, but try it anyway. This helps with bonding mother and child, and helps both of them relax into their new life together.
- Never give commercial formula to a newborn. This is a stupid hospital habit in some locations. They take the baby away from its mother and give it some formula immediately. This is a prescription for disaster and sickness.
- Newborns mainly need rest. Birth can be quite a workout for them. Newborns will sleep most of the time except when in need of food or a change of diaper, or if not feeling well. Do not disturb their sleep any more than needed.
- Newborns are very delicate. Never “play” with a newborn, do not throw the baby around, or pass the baby around to a lot of people, or talk incessantly to a newborn.
Rest is the main thing. Rocking is good only if your baby will not relax. Otherwise, just hold your newborn gently and allow him or her to rest most of the time. This is all the newborns need. They do not need fussing, singing, kissing (ick) or other distractions like things floating above their heads in the crib.
- Every newborn needs a visit with a competent chiropractor and perhaps a competent cranio-sacral practitioner who has experience with newborns and babies. Most babies need a few structural or chiropractic adjustments and treatments. This is to undo twists and other damage that occurs during the birth.
This is even more important if the birth was difficult. If forceps were used (ugh) in the delivery, it is totally imperative.
- Rub your newborn’s feet twice daily. This is foot reflexology. It is extremely healing and relaxing, when done correctly. You may also rub your baby’s hands.
- All babies need a little red heat lamp therapy. Shine it on their backs and abdomen, and never in the eyes. You must take off the baby’s shirt to do this, as the rays must strike the bare skin. A one-minute red light session every day is very good for newborns. Increase to 5 minutes around age 1. Increase to 10-minute sessions after the age of about 3.
- Keep the crib safe at all times. This means never put a toy or anything in the crib that a baby can put in his mouth and choke on. This happens all the time, and babies die from this stupid practice. Babies do not need toys in the crib – they are very dangerous there!
- Keep diapers clean, if at all possible. Do not fuss a lot. Just change the diaper simply.
- Plan on breastfeeding for 3 years or more if your baby wants it. If you must add adult food, it must be natural baby formula from the article on this website (CLICK HERE FOR NATURAL FORMULA) until at least age 1 and a half. Thereafter, a baby can often tolerate some goat milk (ideally raw) or a little cow’s milk, cooked vegetables pureed, and maybe a little shredded meat and some very lightly cooked egg yolk (it has to be runny or don’t give it to a baby). ABSOLUTELY NO FRUIT, AND NO FRUIT OR VEGETABLE JUICES. Also, never give babies a lot of cereal or grains, even well-cooked. Reread the Diet section of this article.
- If your new baby develops a cold or ear infection, if possible do not use medical drugs such as antibiotics or even Tylenol. For infections, Limcomin from Endomet Labs is usually best. Other natural remedies such as ½ a teaspoon twice daily of colloidal silver (Sovereign Silver brand, please), or a little echinacea tincture on the tongue usually works well and is much gentler and less toxic than any drugs. Read about Fevers elsewhere in this article.
Rashes require a development program and usually respond well and easily.(see Eczema and Rashes in this article.)
- Newborns can begin a development program around 3 to 4 months of age. This will benefit them greatly, in all cases. Read much more about this in the Development Programs section of this article.
- For constipation, mix a little Epsom salts in water and feed it to your baby in a syringe or a baby bottle. However, we should not be constipated if we get enough milk, or maybe a little water with the breast milk if the milk is too thick.
- To moms and dads. Your newborn wants you to relax, laugh and enjoy life. Stop worrying, now!
Nutritional supplements. See the Development Program section of this article.
Overwhelmed. Babies easily become overwhelmed. This is because they are so sensitive and aware. They are also very busy learning and growing, even if they are asleep.
Please do not play loud music, even great music. Do not talk loudly, ever, and do not shine bright lights in a baby’s face, ever.
Also, do not dangle things in front of a baby’s face, or put too much in the crib. In short, keep everything very simple and quiet for babies, especially in the first year of life.
Pediatricians. We do not like to speak negatively about anyone, and we never say to avoid going to a doctor in an emergency. Doctors have training that can be indispensible in some situations.
However, today’s pediatrics may be the most destructive medical specialty. Here is why:
- They usually tell mothers to stop breastfeeding much too early. We think this is a terrible mistake, although we understand the reason for the advice. The mother’s milk is not that good.
Better nutrition and a development program for the mother always takes care of this problem. However, babies still often like and need some breast milk until age 3 or so.
- They all recommend vaccines, when they are not needed and are extremely harmful. The most insane idea is giving multiple vaccinations at one doctor visit. However, any vaccines at all are a recipe for disaster.
You will not get the truth about vaccination from a pediatrician because all of them can and will lose their medical license if they tell the truth and oppose vaccinations. Some are also brainwashed and don’t know the truth.
- Most give too many medical drugs when, most of the time, they are not needed. Natural remedies and a development program work as well and sometimes better without the side effects. These days the drugs even include antidepressants and other psychotropic drugs.
- They tell mothers it is okay to feed pasteurized milk, fruit, salads, sweets, juices and other harmful food to babies and children.
- Some suggest lots of exercise when this is not the answer for an overweight baby or child.
- Some handle babies roughly, and their hands are not always perfectly clean.
- Most often, they don’t understand nutrition, and they certainly do not understand development science, or they would not be doing what they do.
- Some are paid to advertise and use certain new drugs – the worst ones to give your baby, in most situations.
- Today, some encourage gender confusion, when the problem, in our experience, is a mixed up body chemistry. In our view, gender dysphoria is not a real disease and should not be viewed as such. In our experience, homosexual feelings and gender dysphoria problems diminish with a development program.
While pediatricians are very good for a few conditions, and we are very glad they are there for these less common situations, for the most part, please keep your baby away from them. A healthy baby does not need well-baby visits, and certainly does not need vaccines and drugs.
Pets. Pets are not usually good around babies. A few babies like them if they are extremely gentle. Most babies do not like them. Pets are dirty and they lick your face and elsewhere. Many or most pets will bite if the child hits them, cries or screams. This can do terrible damage and you won’t even know about it if there are no teeth marks.
If you have a pet, make sure that pets such as cats and small dogs or other animals can never get into a baby’s crib. They can harm a baby a lot – scratch out their eyes, bite them or worse.
Rashes. These are common. Most are not important, but may be very annoying, painful or itchy. Common reasons for rashes are:
1. Elimination of toxins with which the baby was born. This is the case with most eczema.
2. Reactions to toxic chemicals in clothing, soaps, detergents, sheets, blankets, lotions and other products used near or on the skin.
3. Infections, usually due to wrong diets, although occasionally they are due to yeasts, bacteria, viruses, parasites or other microorganisms.
Solutions. Please do not use cortisone creams, if possible. They are quite toxic for babies. Topical antibiotics are not as bad as oral antibiotics, but won’t work on some rashes. Other drugs also tend to be toxic, so please don’t rush to drugs.
Eczema and many other rashes respond beautifully to a properly designed development program, so do that first, please. Other safe therapies are red heat lamp therapy (see the section below) and foot and hand reflexology.
Please do not load your baby with herbs. Read the Herbs section of this article.
Red heat lamps treatments. Shining a reddish 250-watt or smaller ‘heat lamp’ on your baby’s abdomen, mainly, but a little on the chest and back, is wonderful. For details about how long to use it, see the Development section above.
The usual lamp is a 250-watt bulb available for about $10.00-15.00 from most hardware stores and home centers such as Home Depot, Lowe’s, True Value or Ace hardware. You will also need to purchase a clamp-on socket or other socket designed for a 250-watt bulb. You can use a smaller wattage bulb, too, such as a 125-watt bulb, also sometimes called a reptile lamp and sold in pet stores. It is not as powerful, but it works, too.
Never shine the lamp in the baby’s eyes, but focus it on the belly and move it around a little, ideally. Hold it about one foot or more away from your baby’s belly, and feel the belly or the back to see if it seems too hot. Your baby may also let you know if it is too hot. It is normal for the skin to turn a little red after a treatment. This is not a burn, and it goes away after an hour or less.
Reflexology. This is a wonderful and marvelous healing method for babies! It is powerful, easy to do at home, fun and safe when done right, which is not difficult. Please do it daily on all babies. Please do not forget it. Your baby will be grateful to you.
Newborns often need just about 30 seconds per foot. Do the entire foot, including all around the toes.
At around 6 months of age, increase to a minute for each foot. At one year of age, increase to about 2-3 minutes per foot. At two years of age, increase to 4-5 minutes per foot.
Remedies, medical and others. Please, do not load babies and children with a lot of remedies. These include medical drugs, herbs, vitamins, minerals, homeopathics, hormones and others.
Development is much better and is not about remedies. This system corrects imbalances at very deep levels. It may not seem like it, but a development program is very different from remedy therapies used by most every doctor and pediatrician. So do not get confused.
Retracing. This is the essential process of healing. Make no mistake about it. Healing is not about taking remedies. Healing means you have to retrace – go back, that is – and clean everything up in your body and soul.
Babies do this easily, and during early childhood is the time to do it, rather than when a child is 10 or older. The reason is that it is easier at a young age, and babies have more leisure time and rest time in which to retrace.
Room-sharing. We suggest that babies should sleep in their parent’s bedroom for at least the first year of life. After that, it is still a very good idea for as long as the parents and particularly the child want to continue it.
The reason for this is that babies are attacked in unusual ways from the day they are born. The energy of the parents is very protective, so ideally keep your baby close to you.
Safety. We cannot say enough about this. Babies are inherently in danger because they can’t walk, they can’t talk yet, and they can hardly move around. So you have to be careful around babies, and the whole house has to be made “baby-proof”.
This means no sharp corners on anything they touch. It also means no toxic anything anywhere near them. Keep all small objects away from them because they will end up in their mouths. Please go through the house and baby-proof it at least once a week.
Salads. You might be wondering why a section on salads would be in the baby manual. It is to emphasize that for mothers and children, we find salads do not provide much nutrition.
Human beings cannot break down tough vegetable fibers and they do not chew raw vegetables sufficiently to even begin to be able to extract most of the nutrition from raw vegetables.
In contrast, cows and other ruminant animals often have several stomachs, and they spend all day chewing. Cows then throw up the food and ‘chew the cud’, meaning chew it some more.
Telling mothers and everyone else to eat salads we consider a massive error that contributes to malnutrition, fatigue, and even birth defects. There is no substitute for well-cooked vegetables, which are needed with every meal. Any baby eating adult food also needs them several times every day to be healthy.
Shaking a baby. Never shake a baby, allowing the head to bob back and forth. You can actually break the baby’s neck this way. Parents sometimes do this out of frustration to stop their baby from crying. It is terrible. (see Crying for more on how to handle a crying baby.)
Sleeping with parents. All babies must sleep with their parents until at least the age of 1 year and about 3 months. For the reasons for this warning and for instructions and cautions with sleep, go to the section of this article called Alone.
Sleep problems. Suggestions to help with a baby who will not fall asleep are:
- Rub the baby’s feet thoroughly.
- Offer your baby an extra feeding before bed.
- Give your baby a little more Paramin – ½ to even 1 extra tablet.
- Play the song, Hushabye Mountain, sung by Dick Van Dyke, at least 10 times at bedtime.
- Try other soft, quiet music at bedtime.
- Buy a rocking chair, hold your baby and rock your baby to sleep. Some babies adore this.
- Be sure there is no noise or light in the room.
Sleep times. Babies need loads of sleep. Please do not wake up babies to go places, if at all possible. Newborns often sleep for up to 14 hours per day. At age 1 or so, sleep decreases to about 12 to 13 hours. At age 3 or so, sleep decreases to between 10 and 12 hours per day in most cases. This is just average.
Stages of development. Developmental psychologists recognize that babies go through stages. Here is a basic understanding of them.
Oral stage. This is the first stage of a baby’s life. It occurs in the first year of life. A baby is mainly concerned with eating in this stage. Babies also tend to put everything in their mouths to learn about it.
This is an important stage and if trauma occurs during this stage, it can cause eating disorders later in life, obesity, anorexia (no desire to eat) and other problems.
Anal stage. This is the second stage. It occurs around age 2 or so. Sometimes it starts earlier, or a little later. In this stage, babies become concerned about toilet training, and they realize that they can hold on or let go of their waste matter.
This is quite a revelation, in fact. Traumas during this stage give rise later to issues of trust, selfishness, and holding on too tightly to things.
Genital stage. This is a third stage. Here your child discovers the genital organs and may like to play with them because it causes a slight tingle in the body. Girls may like to put marbles or other things in the vagina. Boys like to play with the penis, hitting it and making some fluid come out.
These are not real orgasms, but it is the start of all the sexual interest in life. Traumas or disturbances at this time in a child’s life can give rise to sexual identity problems or other sexually-related problems later in life.
Knowing about these stages will help mothers and fathers to help their babies get through the stages without any traumas or slip-ups. Keep them in mind, because they are real.
Strollers. Babies like these, although babies usually do not like a lot of travel. Older children like to travel more. Babies prefer more peace and quiet.
Sunshine. Babies like and need some sunshine, so don’t keep your baby indoors all of the time and don’t cover up a baby’s skin all of the time. About five to ten minutes of sunshine on the naked body is excellent every day or two.
The skin needs to breathe, so the less clothing, the better, as long as your baby doesn’t get cold. Look and make sure your baby is not shivering, as that means the baby is cold.
Do not rub sunscreen on a baby’s skin, ever, as all of them are too toxic. Just allow your baby to be in the sun gently for a few minutes, in most locations. This is most helpful. Do not listen to the doctors who tell you that you must keep your baby bundled up all the time with no sun.
Supplements. See the Development Program section of this article.
Teething problems. These often have to do with poor health. We wish this were more widely known. If you feed yourself well, mothers, before and during pregnancy, and follow a complete development program during and after pregnancy, and are able to breastfeed, teething problems will be much less or even non-existent.
If they occur, a little clove oil on the teeth may help. Placing the baby on a development program will also relax your baby, which is helpful.
Telepathy. All babies are telepathic, at least to a degree. Moms and dads need to know this. Babies can communicate with you, with the family dog or cat, with other animals, with invisible friends “on the other side”, and with others, too.
This is often unnerving for parents, who just cannot understand what is going on. They may think their baby is schizophrenic, in a few cases, but this is rarely the case.
The truth is that babies are sensitive and tuned in. So let your baby talk about what he or she sees or hears. Do not tell them to stop it. Just let it be.
Definitely do not take us to a psychologist or psychiatrist because we play with “imaginary friends”. They are usually not imaginary. You just cannot see them, but your baby can. They are beings who are there to teach your baby, protect your baby, guide your baby and help your baby grow up strong and healthy. So please just allow us these relationships.
Television. Please do not let babies watch more than one hour daily of this. Most babies love shows with animals, scenery, and even a good news show.
Please keep babies far away from violence, shows with loud music, stupidity, and even sports events, which tend to be somewhat violent. Do not allow your baby to just sit for hours and watch cartoons, most of which are inane and silly. They are not helpful for a baby’s development. The best TV programs are shows about animals, people, or scenes of various places.
Toilet training. Keep toilet training very gentle and do not rush the process. Rushing things just makes your baby very nervous and it traumatizes your baby. There will be some accidents, at first. You had them, too. They will pass.
If you don’t know how to toilet train, please read a book about it, or call a nurse who knows how to do it and follow their advice. It is fairly simple, but it must be done right or it is traumatic for your baby.
Tongue-Tie. This is a very common birth defect. Please check your baby for it carefully. Basically, the tongue is stuck to the bottom of the mouth by some threads that fail to break free. It is easy to solve with simple cutting of the threads by a doctor.
However, if you don’t break the threads, it is much harder for your baby to suckle at the breast. If that happens, your baby has to suck harder, and that is painful for Mom.
Mom may decide she would rather not breastfeed, and that is a tragedy. So always check your baby for tongue-tie, and have it taken care of immediately for your sake and theirs.
Toxins. Please don’t poison your baby with synthetic detergents that irritate their skin, poisons in the home that they accidentally touch, cigarette or marijuana smoke, dusty, moldy areas where they play, poisons outside where they play, poisons in their food, poisons in vaccines and medical drugs, and even poisons in herbs, as well.
Traumas. Babies can be traumatized very easily! Avoid anything traumatic for your baby, if at all possible. Among the common ones are:
- Too much noise from televisions or music or loud voices.
- Rough handling
- Too many people around.
- Sexual trauma from wiping wrong during a diaper change,
- Trauma due to careless or intentional words spoken that are mean, nasty or lies.
- Traumas caused by falls, accidents, toilet training accidents, and other things.
- Going to doctors of all stripes. Try to keep babies away, sadly. It would be wonderful if babies always had positive experiences with doctors, but they are rare, in fact.
Many doctors are in a hurry, handle babies a little roughly, their hands are not clean, and they love shots which babies hate – especially vaccines that are not needed and very toxic.
Some doctors use negative words around babies. In fact, babies understand most everything doctors say.
Even their waiting rooms are often traumatic, with lots of crying, sick children. Just making your baby wait in there is bad. So, sadly, again, please keep babies away from them as much as you can.
Travel. In general, keep babies at home. A few babies love travel at a young age, but in almost cases, wait until your baby is three or older for any lengthy trips.
How to travel. Cars are definitely the best. They have the space to bring along the extra diapers, bottles for extra feedings, blankets for the baby, and more. However, some babies get car sick, so be careful even with car travel.
Babies definitely do not like airplanes, which are filthy. They are also not that safe in these days of terrorism and burnt out pilots. Babies also do not like buses or trains, which are also unclean.
It is important to protect babies from germs, please. Babies are quite sensitive to some germs, and they can get very sick very fast. So please keep them home most all the time for the first three years of life.
Vaccines. These are never necessary and always harmful. We know that is a very strong statement and it is repeated many times in this article. It is meant to wake up people before all the children are ruined by them.
Please read Vaccination – A Medical Abomination, and other articles that are critical of vaccination. Also, please question and preferably ignore the vaccine propaganda machine run by brainwashed, raped, and ignorant pediatricians.
Public health authorities such as the Surgeon-General and others are usually no better. Remember, doctors lose their license to practice medicine if they don’t recommend vaccines, so you will not get the truth about them from your doctor at this time. The medical system is vey sick throughout the world.
Vaccine proponents regularly lie and distort the truth about the terrible risks of vaccines, publish false studies of vaccine safety and effectiveness, and harass any doctor who goes against their methods. This is the truth about vaccination, sadly.
Moms – before you give birth, sign papers and arrange everything with your doctor, midwife, doula, husband and others to make it completely clear you don’t want any vaccinations for your baby. Let them all know you will sue them if they violate your orders.
The very worst thing you can do to a baby, along with abuse such as starving or hitting, is to vaccinate. The very worst is when more than one vaccine is given at a doctor visit. This easily overwhelms your baby’s system with toxins and viruses, in most cases. They cannot handle it. Autism, many other problems, and even death can occur.
If you want problems with your baby, then vaccinate. If you want a healthy baby, then don’t vaccinate! Also, oppose any stupid law that mandates vaccines. Become a Christian or some other religion if it will get you out of it. Do whatever it takes, please, if you care at all for your baby.
Vitamin K shots for babies. This is standard medical practice today to avoid something called newborn hemorrhagic disease. This means abnormal bleeding and we believe it is just is a fancy name for a vitamin K deficiency. The cause is that mothers do not eat enough cooked vegetables.
These shots are never needed and are always traumatic for newborn babies. If a mother is on a development program or even just eating plenty of cooked vegetables daily, she and the baby will have plenty of vitamin K.
If mother is not eating well, a vitamin K pill for the baby works just fine.
Vomiting. Babies vomit easily. It can be due to too much milk or other food, or being upset, or a stomach virus. See Hydration above because the biggest problem with vomiting can be dehydration.
Walking. This is a very big deal for babies. So help us along. It is not good for babies to fall a lot, so hold them up while they are learning. If possible, find some carpeting for them to learn on so they don’t fall so hard.
A hard fall for a baby can upset the spine, so at this time in their development be sure they visit a chiropractor or osteopath who will check and adjust the spine to keep it properly aligned. Otherwise, lifelong damage can occur.
Water for drinking. The only time to give a breastfeeding baby water is if dehydration is occurring. In most cases, this is because the milk is too thick because mother is not drinking enough, or not drinking the right water, or ingesting caffeine, sugar, fruit, or alcohol, which make her dehydrated, so her milk is too thick as a result.
If you give your baby water, spring water is usually the very best. Carbon-only filtered tap water is usually second best. Please do not give a baby (or yourself) reverse osmosis water. It is devoid of vital minerals, it is too yin, and it does not hydrate most bodies well. Also avoid alkaline water, which is too yin. For much more about water, please read Water For Drinking.
Worms and parasites. These are often easy to take care of, provided you keep your baby away from playing in the dirt, putting dirt in his or her mouth, or putting anything that is dirty at all into the mouth or even on the hands.
Drugs are rarely needed to get rid of parasites. The product called GB-3 (contains pancreatin, ox bile and Russian black radish), often takes care of them if your baby is fed correctly. To repeat, feeding a baby correctly means breast milk only until age 3, in most cases. There may be exceptions if the baby cannot tolerate breast milk. See the above section on breastfeeding problems.
Over the age of three, proper feeding means NO FRUIT, NO JUICES, NO SALADS, AND NO SWEETS OF ANY KIND, EVER. It also means cooked vegetables several times daily, animal protein daily, and a little whole grain, but never white flour or white rice, or other refined products. At this time (January 2019), rice and lentils are not testing well for children or adults. We don’t know why.
Sugar in any form, including fruit and juices, definitely encourages certain parasites and yeasts. Please remember this.
X-rays. Babies rarely need them, unless they are really sick. They can hurt babies a lot. Doctors sometimes use them as if they are not important, but they are important to babies. So please avoid them whenever you can.
