Ok, so I googled it! Lol! They say to use a couple of teaspoons of chamomile tea in the bottle to help with colic. I don't see where that would hurt, chamomile is a gentle herb. You should ask the dr first though.

No and I am not so sure about that. Maybe you can have her bottles be more room temp.

 I LOVE it but didn't even offer it to my daughter till last year,she's 14 years old. Even though it's a natural herb it can be addictive. Because of the relaxing components in it.

 I have NEVER heard of this.  Wow!  I feel like I've been living under a rock.

I gave it to my oldest a couple of times; fussy, probably teething, but I never heard of it being addictive.  Wow!!!

I just googled "chamomile tea addictive" and all I found is that it's not chemically addictive, but if you have an addictive personality, you can become addicted to anything.  (I also saw something about people smoking chamomile tea leaves???)  Anyway...

 My cousins daughter became addicted to it. She was 3 when she started drinking her moms. She's 19 now and can't fall asleep without it.

I give it to my daughter sometimes when she's having trouble falling asleep if she's sick. Started at about 2 years old. I don't think I'd do it that young.
