I love Chamomile tea. I like the taste and I love the smell. I have read many things about Chamomile being a nervine herb for kids and that it can help to settle the stomach and relieve gas. Last week my four month was fussy; it was obvious he had a stomach ache. I couldn't tell if it was gas or if he was constipated. So, I made a weak Chamomile tea infusion. I put it in a baby bottle and let him drink a little. He did not turn it away, so I let him drink as much as he wanted (it was less than an ounce.) An hour later he had a bowel movement. After that he was back to his happy self! Because I breastfeed, I could have drank it and then when he nursed he would have gotten some but I wanted it to start working a little quicker and that is why I gave it to him straight.
Chamomile can calm the nerves of children and adults. If you feel restless when it is time for bed, drink a cup of Chamomile tea to help settle you down. After making the weak infusion for my baby, I had some leftover so I poured it into a glass and told my other little ones they could drink it if the wanted.
As with anything else, I would never give herbs to anyone without first doing my research. If you have any questions or comments please place them below and I will answer them as soon as I get a chance.
