Catnip and fennel tea has been around for ages ! I am a 60+ yr old grandmother, who survived because of this little wonder !
I was born so collicky - that the medical docs thought i had pyloric stenosis - paralysis of the valve that allows food from the stomach into the intestines.
They had me on Paragoric - a very STRONG, addictive opiate - imagine that ? A newborn that we try so hard to protect en utero
to succumb to drugs ?
Well...family GP put me on the tea and all was well after that. The opiates were taken away immediately, and the catnip and fennel was my salvation.
I have 3 children of my own, who have all had catnip and fennel tea , whether they were collicky or not. It made feeding time a joy, no sour stomachs or spitting up. Its all natural - and a pure lifesaver !
Enjoy your baby, and give yourself some pleasure time instead of stress time. Drink a cup, for yourself and relax !
