An infant’s chance of survival is enhanced by breast feeding. In premature infants the chance of survival is doubled in breast-fed as compared with the artificially-fed. Homoeopathy has a great deal to offer in conjunction with other measures such as pre- natal preparation by pulling out the nipples advocated by Waller to enable the infant to bite beyond the tender tip. The use of Calendula compresses for tender nipples (a drachm of the tincture to a pint of water) sometimes enables breast feeding to be maintained when sore nipples could be a cause for weaning. Phytolacca 6 or higher is valuable when there is pain radiating from the nipple and there are many other local and constitutional remedies to abort breast abscesses (such as Bryonia, Belladonna and Pyrogen, and other remedies to help effectively in maintaining lactation, including Pulsatilla, Calc-carb., Zincum, Ignatia and many others. Here is a field for research, because if our clinical impressions are correct, Homoeopathy could here also provide means for a major advance in paediatrics. In dealing with feeding mismanagement, having considered the diet and feeding technique, Carbo-veg. and Lycopodium are most commonly indicated when there is excessive flatulence or flatus.
