When my Auntie Stella came to the rescue in helping me take care of Gwen, she requested for me to buy Aceite Alcanforado and Aceite de Manzanilla. Clueless on those weird sounding names, I bought it at Mercury. Upon reading the label, Aceite de Manzanilla is a blend of chamomile and citronella oil and Aceite Alcanforado is for colds to be applied on baby’s back.
The white cloth is “bigkis” which is tied around baby’s tummy also to prevent colic (kabag). Aceite de Manzanilla is applied on baby’s tummy to prevent colic, head and can also be used to massage her legs.
I’m quite wary on using the two Aceite though, as I want an all natural approach for the baby as much as possible. I have to make room to research on the side effects of this instead of looking through which diet pills actually work.
Mommies, do you also these? Care to share your baby care tips?
