I am so glad you baby is feeling better! I did a search on the tea mentioned. It’s ingredients are not easily found. Remember, tea is not considered a medial treatment and therefore is not held to any standards regarding quality of ingredients or safety. Without having seen randomized controlled studies, I cannot recommend use of any tea touted for treating colic (or constipation or anything else for that matter). If you choose to use anything other than breast milk or formula (made with water), the risk is yours alone. Be cautious with any product that is given in place of either BM or Formula, as young babies need each calorie in their milk. When possible, see a doctor so they can help determine that you are dealing with colic and not some of it’s sneaky siblings such as milk protein intolerance or failure to thrive. Colic is very difficult and I understand why parents are constantly searching for effective treatments. Seems like this one works for some and it would be nice to see if formally studied so we would know for sure.
Hi, Dr. Sara,
Thanks for the information you provided me. I’m not a good researcher, but as you can guess from my name, I am from eastern side where herbals are being used from centuries to treat different diseases. I went through the web and also some elder moms in my community and they told cumin and fennel are being used for newborns and adults tummy problems.
You are right that if you someone is new to these ingredients, can ruin their baby’s tummy instead of soothing them because access of these herbs could cause negative effects.
However, if a product is made by some experts, they’ll take care of the right quantity of these ingredients. Now, they (babies magic tea) claim about this thing and I have experienced this product with good results without side effects, so I shared my experienced.
Again thanks for your expert opinion.
