Strong catnip/fennel tea in syringe for restless baby? - Page 2

post #21 of 22

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 !

My son was much the same way growing up.  Come to find he couldn't breath through his nose very well.  For him, it was a case of a V shaped upper cleft (not deformed, just v shaped) that crowded his adnoids and upper teeth, and also presented problems with the ears and tonsils.  Unfortunately, all of the ENET doctors who examined him over the first 7 years of his life couldn't tell me what was wrong.  I stumbled upon it only after he'd had his adnoids removed twice, along with his tonsils and two sets of ear tubes.  If only I'd known, I would have seen an orthodontist and gotten him braces years before his 15th birthday.  He had a heck of a time sleeping as a baby. 

I'm not suggesting your child suffers from a V shaped cleft, he might have a deviated septum, or allergies, etc...

 

Hope this helps.
