Colic and Teething

Colic and Teething

Chamomile Tea is known for helping to soothe and calm babies who are fussy and upset from colic, gas pains, and teething. Choose tea from a trusted source (I use Traditional Medicinals), and brew it as you would normally brew a cup of tea, but then dilute it 1:1 with filtered water, or brew it diluted by using one tea bag for 16 oz. of water.

Give 1/2 oz of tea to your baby using a dropper, or mix it in a bottle of breast milk or formula. If you’re breastfeeding you can also drink the tea (undiluted), and your baby will reap some of the benefits through your breast milk.

For Teething -
For teething discomfort, soak the corner of a washcloth in the undiluted Chamomile tea and place it in the freezer. Let your baby chew on the frozen washcloth to soothe them and ease their teething pain.
