#ZBOT134 - Dr. Blumer's Laxal Remedy Label - The Baby's Friend
#ZBOT134 - Dr. Blumer's Laxal Remedy Label - The Baby's Friend
Vintage 4" tall "Dr. Blumer's Laxal" label. Says "Laxal The Baby's Friend". These are from around 1900 when a lot of babies died from opium/morphine addiction caused by teething and quieting medications. The Pure Food and Drug Act had not been passed yet, but because of public outcry other medicines were brought out as a substitute.  This is one of those. It doesn't list what was actually in it (as was required by the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906), but claims it was Non-Alcoholic and contained "no Opium, Morphine or other habit producing drugs".  Says it was "A common sense remedy for Baby's complaints". Makes me wonder what they did put in it. Found at the factory many years ago.
