Does anyone know about this? I read this suggestion a few weeks ago and I can't remember where. Yesterday, in desperation I sent my dh out to buy the herbs and today I steeped the tea for 10 minutes and gave it to the baby (a syringe's worth). Then I nursed her, burped her and laid her down...and she just laid her head down and is asleep. THIS NEVER HAPPENS. Ever.
My daughter is high needs...cranky, must always be held but tries to leap out of your arms constantly, never stops moving. She "cries it out" in our arms and it breaks my heart. Whines all the time. Her eyes follow me around the room as she whimpers for me to hold her but she's nearly impossible to hold. She doesn't nap more than 15 minutes and is so tired that she wants to comfort nurse all. the. time. And it's the only thing that keeps her mildly occupied, so I let her. She's exclusively breastfed and at 7 months of age, we've gone through countless dietary considerations as well as chiro, probiotics, ergo, sleepywrap, homeopathic remedies, co-sleeping, not co-sleeping, dark room, keeping her up longer, not keeping her up longer...I mean the list goes on and on as far as what we've done to try to calm her and keep her content and to help her to sleep more than 15 minutes to get the rest she needs. But still, she has dark circles under her red little eyes and everywhere we go people say she looks so sleepy. (she is! always!)
Clearly, I'm tempted to give this stuff to her again. And again! Every day! But I'm not sure how safe this is for everyday use. I want to just observe her for the next couple days (bowel movements, mood, etc) to make sure she tolerates it okay. Anyone know about this remedy?
