During the breast-feeding period of their life babies receive the liquids they need through their mother’s milk. However, on many occasions you can complement that with herbal tea with no sugar added: e.g. when they have colic or certain infections.
In general babies react very well to herbal teas. From the fifth month onwards you can also give them fruit tea; like the herbal tea, it not only tastes good but is also a great way of supplying the vitamins and minerals the baby needs. Be it anise or citrus, it is imperative to always prepare it the right way – with freshly boiled water.
