Baby Colic & Medicinal Tea

by shiela Russell
(Ontario Canada)

My daughter delivered a son 3 weeks ago by c section. He has a lot of gas and discomfort after feeding and consequently is not sleeping much. My health store suggested Fennel and Caraway tea to help with this problem. Baby also has a lot of spots on his face (baby acne ) which he has recently acuired. Md says it is nothing to worry about. Please help is it true that this tea will stop mothers milk from being acidic.? Are there any food that you can suggest she avoids which may be compounding this problem

Medicinal Tea Benefits
by: Grandma

Hello Shiela,

I'm so sorry for it taking so long to get back to you, I've had trouble with my phone line ever since the day before Thanksgiving.

Medicinal teas are wonderful for colic. I have many recipes that are safe for your daughter to drink while breastfeeding. Just look for the button on the left that reads "Medicinal Teas" there you'll find a list of the teas that were recommended plus many more, along with the benefits and recipes.

The Dr. is right, don't worry about the spots on the baby's face they will fade away. It wouldn't hurt to put a little olive oil after bathing.
