My four month old started teething recently and after being a great night sleeper before, was suddenly up at all hours and crying a lot during the day. I was resorting to 'Baby Panadol' in desperation. But for the past 48 hours, I have been drinking 5-6 cups a day of chamomile tea (using about three teabags, sometimes twice) and she is an entirely different baby.
I am breastfeeding of course. Chamomile tea has also had quite a strong calming effect on me as an adult, and I guess she's getting it through my milk. Could be coincidence but my gut feeling is it's the chamomile!
Baby and Chamomile does not agree
I love Chamomile, but it seems not to have agreed with my son.
The first time I had Chamomile, he vomited (at two months).
About a month later I drank a tea that contained Chamomile and later that day he vomited.
He rarely spits up if at all, so it was very alarming to see him spit up all this fluid.
I haven't had Chamomile since (one year), and he's never vomited in that manner again. I've deducted all other possibilities; Chamomile was the only common factor.
Any other moms have this experience?
Chamomile with lemon verbena
I was drinking Chamomile Mint tea and didn't realize it had lemon verbena in it....which isn't safe for breastfeeding.
