  • yes, all 3 of mine had chamomile tea when their bellies were hurting. it was only about an ounce or two. chamomile is very calming and has many uses, the other day my mother instructed me to clean out my daughters' eye with it when it had green gunk coming out of it. believe it or not - it stopped the irritation and the doctor almost didn't notice anything when i took her in to be checked out. it wasn't pink eye, just allergy eye, but it can be used to clean out the eyes in both cases until antibiotics are given. i also drink it from time to time when my own belly is upset, or to relieve stress and unwind.

  • @ tnm786 yes we did the same for the eyes and so many other Mexican home remedies that made me so proud to be Mexican.
