Can I give my 7 month old tea? Please help

He has a terrible cough! It breaks my heart.
Will a couple ounces of Mint tea help?
No honey I know.

  • Just make sure it's caffeine free (for your sanity).

  • i dont know tht it would do any good but i dont see why it would hurt im assuming hes eating some regular foods and drinking juice.
    try a humidifier or sitting with him in the bathroom with a hot shower running for a few mins. that always helped my little guy.

  • I'd call the pediatrician office first just to be safe.

  • We used to give catnip tea for colic and mint tea for colic and for breathing/throat issues. :O) Just NO honey. You are better with sugar if you need to sweeten.

  • If its ok by doctors to give your child drugs then I am sure tea isnt going to hurt..I would give that over drugs any day.
