Is there anything to consider with the tea?
Babies should not drink tea too early because they may reject healthy breast milk. It is therefore advisable to start with tea only when it has a health benefit. As a thirst quencher, the tea should be fed regularly from the fifth month onwards. In addition, only special baby teas can be used because many other types contain caffeine that is unsuitable for children.
Preparation / Recipes
Tea for babies should always be freshly prepared if possible. This is difficult to do on the road, so a good thermos jug that keeps the tea fresh and warm is ideal for trips. A general preparation recommendation does not exist, because each sort has its own variant of it. In general, tea is poured with hot water and it has to brew for a few minutes.
Babies should not brew tea too long, otherwise it becomes too strong. It is advisable to study the leaflet to find out which recommendations are made for each type of tea. In general, the preparation time is halved. If a brewing time of 10 minutes is recommended, it should only be 5 minutes. In addition, the tea must not be too hot when feeding.

When does the baby get to drink tea?
In general, babies can drink tea from the 3rd week, it is only recommended from the second month. As a thirst quencher, tea is not needed for the first few months because breast milk already contains the most important nutrients. Some babies are also confused and refuse the breast after the tea bottle, because a different absorbency is needed here.
Therefore parents should change here carefully or feed tea as an additive. Tea also satisfies the natural hunger, so babies drink less milk afterwards. That’s why it’s a good idea to start with tea only when it’s needed. For example, for severe flatulence. Only when supplementary food is fed may tea be given as a regular meal. Babies who are not breastfed, on the other hand, should be fed tea in the first few weeks because they need more liquids.
Especially in summer, here tea is a good alternative. If the baby has a fever, the fluid intake should also be increased. Here a larger amount of it is even very helpful.
