We have used homeopathy to cure our children of all sorts of unfortunate things which our GP was unable to help with, such as molluscum, cold sores, eczema, a lingering Flu last year and numerous other ailments and illnesses over the years. We have also experience of our babies having been cured of various ailments using homeopathy... the placebo effect clearly would not come into effect with babies!
Of course you are entitled to your own opinion on homeopathy, but the poster has asked for homeopath recommendations not unhelpful information about buying smarties in Asda!
your heuristic (or hubristic
) of interpreted personal experience is no substitute for scientific fact.
put another way, how you feel does not alter the chemical composition of a pill that does not contain what it says it does. the manufacturing processes do not exist to create those concentrations.
if it cannot be manufactured, then you do not have it . if you do not have it, then *it* doesn't "work".
I know you aren't really interested, but you are also not the audience for my comments:

"However, thanks to some basic laws of physics and chemistry and a little thing known as Avogadro’s number, any homeopathic dilution greater than 12C (twelve serial 100-fold dilutions) is incredibly unlikely to contain even a single molecule of starting compound.
let me spell that out for you: not one molecule
not one molecule.
which leads on the other question of what have you been feeding the kids (answer: no one, including you, knows), but that's for another discussion.
a few other articles if anyone is interested

I liked this quote, that ought to stir even the most irrational of minds:
"In fact, most available treatments are sold at even more absurd dilutions. Oscillococcinum, a popular flu remedy derived from duck liver and made by Boiron, a French manufacturer of homeopathic cures, comes in a standard dilution of 400X.
At this low concentration, to ensure you actually did ingest one molecule you would have to swallow about 10 to power 380 pills—many, many more pills than there are atoms in the universe.
