Fennel helps babies with collic...

I have seen many q's about how to help babies with collic and I ran accross this info while searching how to solve other stomach issues:

Fennel helps improve digestion and aids in expelling trapped gas in the digestive tract. Make a tea by pouring one cup of boiling water over 1-2 teaspoons of the dried herb; cover; steep for fifteen minutes; strain. This remedy is excellent for babies who have colic, too. Give the baby 1/4 cup of tea diluted with an equal amount of water in a bottle before each feeding.

  • We gave our daughter an ounce of chamomile tea for colic; it seemed to help a bit
