Tonight Rupi and Blossom had their first dose of antibiotics...ever. We are pretty natural: all natural cleaning products, soaps, toothpaste etc and also no vaccinating (yet). We always said we'd use antibiotics only when we absolutely had to and Rupi's gone over two years without.
We're not playing with their health. Green snot for the fifth day running and a temperature, and we made the call to get the antibiotics in them. The lemon & manuka honey lollipops, Pamol and organic chest syrup were just not cutting it. My doctor is so good. He thought we could go without but gave me a prescription "just in case". And 5.30pm saw me in the chemist, getting the stash.
As I arrived home Blossom did the biggest bobbit (Rupi's word for vomit) e.v.e.r. So, very glad to get her dosed up and rocked up and in her cot, soundly asleep. The kiddies are generally very healthy, we have them on Vitamin D, Zinc, Flaxseed oil and probiotics. But when they are this sick, we are happy to bring in the Big Guns. Hello antibiotics!
We have carefully chosen what we do. There's a place for natural medicine AND a place for conventional medicine. At this moment we are so happy to be going the conventional medicine route!
