Thanks for your views. I would appreciate to know if there is any difference between alfalfa for kids and alfalfa general. Alfalfa tonic with me prescribes dosage both for adult and babies. Is there any harm to use the general one for the kid?

You may give your baby the tonic that you have and if it doesn't help, please provide the following details.

1.whether he prefers warm surroundings ie whether he likes to be covered or he prefers cold surroundings and open air.

2.whether he has a mild disposition or an irritable diposition. How is his attitude towards his friends and relatives?

3.What other physical problems, if any does he have.

4.At what time he feels better and at what time does he feel worse like in the morning, evening, late night etc.

5.What do you think is the causative factor for starting his problems.

6.How is his thirst for cold drinks, hot drinks and water?

7.How is the bowel movement? Normal, constipated or loose.

8.Whether the child prefers to move around or prefers to keep still.
