So…what is there to be done? Is there a chance for parents around the world to solve the problem of a crying baby while still nurturing his health? For sure it is and it’s found in the form of herbal teas.
What a more natural way to calm a baby is there, than a warm all natural tea? None.

In order to understand the powerful, yet natural, effect of chamomile and herbal herbs, a study was made. The findings are amazing. It’s been proven that apigenin – a constituent in the chamomile tea – works on the brain in the same way that a various group of anxiety-reducing drugs such as Valium, but without the harmful side effects.
Chamomile combined with the following two herbs, results into a non-invasive remedy for sleep disorders in babies.
- Lemon balm and Valerian
Maryland Medical Centre reportedly made a study that concluded that the Lemon balm/Valerian combination resulted in better sleep quality for 81% of subjects. For those that love to be 100% sure of everything they feed their baby, Lemon balm was approved as a cure for “nervous sleeping disorders” by Commision E of the German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices.
