The other day I had the great idea of trying natural ways to treat Baby’s ADHD. You can read about it here. After discussing with my husband, we would try the hardest one first.
I sat Baby down and told her what were thinking of doing, and why. I told her what that meant. No more milk at dinnertime. No more cheese on her sandwiches. No yogurt, or anything else that contains dairy. I explained that it was only temporary, and she seemed like she was willing to work with us.
I knew though, that it was going to take work and effort. I just didn’t think I would fail on the first day.
Baby at 7:30 in the morning: Mommy, I drank the rest of the milk.
Baby: well, cuz you said I can’t have milk at dinner. I got rid of it.
Okay. I can’t argue that logic. I didn’t exactly SPECIFY the time, nor was I monitoring breakfast time. Twenty minutes later I am inspecting lunches. Baby? Does this sandwich have cheese on it?
Mom: And is this yogurt in your bag?
… well she already had milk today, no sense starting today.
Tuesday looked pretty much the same way, so by this point I decided to give up on this goal…. Perhaps the fish oil might be an easier natural treatment to try?
