Chamomile

Matricaria recutita (German Chamomile) or Asteraceae Anthemis nobiles (Roman Chamomile)

Chamomile calms the spirit and is the number one botanical for both mom and baby.  As a nervine, it will soothe anxiety and restlessness.  It calms digestion and soothes nervous stomachs.  It also can treat fevers, colds, flu, and headaches and relieve cramps from birth or menses.  This botanical is safe and calming and one of the best herbs for crying, restless babies.  Use it in the baby’s bathwater to clear up diaper rash, heal wounds or cuts.

Fennel

Foeniculum vulgare

Fennel seeds are warming and a little spicy; aiding gas and bloating for both mom and baby.  Mom can eat them directly, if feeling bloated, and make a cup of colic tea to feed to the baby by dropperful throughout the day.  This after-meal tea can ease gas, indigestion, abdominal pain, and spasms.

Lemon Balm

Melissa officinalis

Known as the gladdening herb, Lemon balm lifts the spirits, and as a carminative; it aids digestion and relieves gas.  The yummy lemony taste is well-loved by both women and children and when your little one is old; make a cup of Lemon balm tea with milk and honey.  It is also antiviral, so it is very effective for breaking fevers and treating colds and flu.

The slight minty taste may lower mom’s breastmilk, but will certainly do no harm to the baby.  And, as a combined tea blend, it may relieve moms’ anxiety and restlessness and lift their spirits.
