my friends sone, who is not yet 3 months old, is about to have his second MRI scan which means a second general anesthetic (sp).
He was quite poorly after the first one and I wondered if there was a homeopathic remedy that might help him. Does anyone know if the homeopathic remedies are okay for babies?

A lot definately are. My dd started seeing a homeopath at 9 months, and we'd given her the homeopathic teething granules before that. She could try calling a few homepaths in her aea and finding out if they felt they could help in her situation.

I don’t know about homeopathic remedies in a baby this young. I think you should seek the advice of a qualified homeopath because you don’t want to risk the possibility of making things worse.
In what way was he poorly after the first anaesthetic? An anaesthetist will usually assess the child before giving any anaesthetic so it would be a good idea for your friend to tell them then about the previous problems because there might be some drug they can give/something they can do differently if they know what the problem was.

Definitely OK- ds3 (1 week old yesterday) has already had his first remedy (arnica). There are remedies that help with anaesthetics- but best to see a homeopath (on recomendation if possible).
