What’s the first thing you do when your child falls sick? Call the doctor or ask your mom for a home remedy? I observe first depending on the cause that made my child/ren sick and seek for a home remedy unless it’s really an emergency. If it’s an on and off fever, I wait for 2 days before I finally take them to their Pedia, or worst I don’t wait for their doctor’s recommendation, I always request for a complete lab test ahead of time.
With my first born, Deye, it was never a problem. Teething was normally the cause of her sickness, and of course an after effect of her monthly vaccine. But with my bunso, Ishi, we have been in and out of the hospital due to her asthma attacks. With her, it has always been a different case.
