Medicines are a tricky business for parents. Ask yourself if you know what are dangerous medicines for your baby. You know your child does not feel good, but what can you give them safely?
Always talk to your doctor before giving your baby any type of medicine, even herbal medicines. Babies bodies are not fully immuned to some things, and that would include plants.
Babies can have strange reactions to many types of plants and herbs, so you do not want to take a chance with any of them.
