Generally new born babies fell sick due to the milk they are consuming or weather or other factors. Our first reaction is to take them to a doctor, who will eventually give some medicines. Thus the babies system is bombarded with chemicals right from the beginning.
But it just that the body of the new born baby is getting used to the environment after staying 9 months in mother’s womb. So they dont need medicines that weakens their immune system. Rather they should be given natural herbs (which are processed to get rid of any impurities). These herbs will help the baby’s immune system to develop and at the same time make the baby feel better.
For example stomach ailment is the most common in babies. Babies also suffer with colic, flatulence, diarrhoea, dysentery, acidity, vomiting, weaning, constipation, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, etc due to teething, climate changes or unsuitable diet. In such cases we can apply the herb “heeng” on babies navel. Similarly we have herbal formulation in Ayurveda named as “Ghutti” to treat kids with above mentioned stomach issues. We have been preparing a herbal water (since 1890) with more than 15 herbs for overall growth and stomach ailments in children. Here are more details – www.matsyaveda.com/product/infanto-care/. Why would you give digestive enzymes that are chemically processed to the delicate new born baby, instead give something natural.
