chamomile tea for a toddler?

Is it safe to give chamomile tea to a toddler? Only an ounce or so before bed. Would that little even help though? We are having sleep issues with my son. His sleep specialist suggested melatonin, I am not sure how I feel about that. We hopefully will get more answers in April after his sleep study. That just sounds like a long ways away.

Yes, but dilute it more after it's brewed.
Other things that you can try- massage before bed, EOs, singing, rubbing an ear as babe is falling asleep. Also check his diet, cut artificial dyes and Flavors

Oh, and chamomile tea is not safe if there is a ragweed allergy.

I know It's not exactly what your asking but When my children are not feeling well I make a good extra-strong cup and dump it in their bathwater. LOL. It relaxes them and they're out as soon as they hit the pillow.

I've been doing it for years at all different age levels.

No artificial anything just breast milk, fruits, veggies, and a tiny bit of grains. :)
I will try the other ideas, thanks.

Quoting jellyphish: Yes, but dilute it more after it's brewed.

I've used it for my son. We tried melatonin too. And we've had a sleep study. He's 2 and wakes up constantly!

My daughter has had it since she was 6 months old.  She has severe (has had surgery) reflux and it was the only thing she could drink other than the special elemental formula she was on.  She is 2 1/2 now and still loves it.

My kids love chamomile tea when they have upset tummies or just want something relaxing. My kids have all had it since they were old enough to take sips from my cup.
