My little guy (he's 17 months) has a little bug and a fever of 102 (along with some hives) -he's not really hungry and just out of sorts/miserable. He breastfed a little today when we got home from daycare, but I was wondering if chamomile tea would be ok to help him relax & maybe feel a little better.

Any thoughts or other suggestions for making him comfortable? I jsut feel so bad that he's sick.

Yup, we've given Chamomile Tea for fever before.

Hope your LO is feeling better soon.

Thanks! We gave it a try (with a little honey of course!) and all day yesterday my Ds was walking around asking for Tea! Tea! I think he really liked sharing the tea out of the same mug as me

Anyway, the fever broke and he's feeling much better!

And just and FYI I also made a cool compress using the tea (no honey this time) and it really helped to cool him down in the middle of the night. Those fevers are so scary! Whew!

Anything that will hydrate them is great. Water, tea, diluted juice, and of course breast milk.
I encourage ds to eat ice and frozen berries when he was a fever. He loves eating those things anyway, but I think it helps cool him down a bit.
