So the Ped says it's viral, but gave us a prescription for antibiotics anyway (wtf?).
I know I should give them "time" but they suck and she HATES the meds with a burning passion... she sobs whenever she sees the bottle/dropper.
So we went to Whole Foods and picked up some homeopathic ear drops... 15 minutes later she's happy, eating, and NOT screaming bloody murder when I lay her down to change her diaper.
Home Remedies 1, Modern Medicine 0
(This is not to say that we don't believe in modern medicine because there is certainly a time and a place for medical intervention. Heck, if we didn't believe in modern medicine then we wouldn't have health insurance for her, get any vaccinations, or call a Pediatrician when we have concerns... and if the home remedies stop working then you can bet your @$$ I'll be back on the intervention band wagon. But if low-intervention strategies are working for her, then why up the ante?)
