how can i give my baby tea?

she wont take a bottle and giving it to her off a spoon is making a big mess right now. this tea is made from fennel, chamomile, and catnip to help her little tummy.

  • My friend uses it to mix her formula. Maybe you can mix it with BM?

  • Well, herbal remedies are WAY older than any medicines we have today! Did you know aspirin is the synthetic form of willowbark? I agree- mixing it with the formula seemed to help with my son. He had to have chamomile tea every night to help him sleep.

  • No, thats crazy. I don't give my son anything, with the exception of tylenol. And I can count on one hand how many times I've given him that.

  • I didn't mean I think herbal remedies are crazy. I was referring to the asprin comment. I can see why you may of thought that, lol. I was never brought up with herbal remedies, so they are some what foreighn to me.

  • How old is baby? I would try and find the cause for tummy upset... maybe change your diet?

    Other than that, most babies can take sips from a regular glass from a young age, I would try that.
