Rescue Remedy
Please can you tell me if it is safe to give Rescue Remedy drops to a toddler? My child is two and is at times very difficult to handle. I don' t know how best to describe his behavior but wild comes to mind. I know it is normal for toddlers to be active and full of energy but sometimes my toddler becomes too active that he cannot focus on anything and he becomes impossible. He can' t eat, drink or even play with toys he is just all over the place. He jumps and shouts and runs and shouts and I can' t get anything out of him. He is not always like this but someday' s he is just wild. If Rescue is safe, how many drops can I give him and how often should he be given a dose.
