Herbal Remedies for Babies

In this post I listed a few herbal remedies for babies younger than 6 months for specific ailments.

Note the following statements regarding remedies for babies younger than 6 months:
Avoid internal use.
If need be, some remedies can be taken by the breastfeeding mom in order to treat the baby.
This said, herbs are still safer to use than any conventional medicine.
Please consult with a trained medicinal herbalist before administering herbal remedies.

Also note the use of internal and external use of herbal remedies for babies where applicable.
