  1. thanks for thi s episode! we are in the midst of it with our newborn. finding that tallow balm is soothing his skin, breastmilk and dead sea baths seem to help, a nd we are experimnting with my diet… can you give an update on clair’s eczema and if you’ve found new remedies over time?? thank you!!!

    1. Kristin, I am so sorry for my late reply! I am so glad you’ve found some remedies that work for you. Claire’s eczema has improved tremendously. We ended up finding a new dermatologist who became a real partner in her care, pivoting treatment on the fly based on how she responded. We reduced baths, removed any botanicals from her skincare (she was developing topical allergies) and began to treat her environmental allergies. It can all feel like a lot! Always feel free to email us at with any further questions. xo Alison
