If you talk to anyone down south they would swear by some herbs which they burn and make a paste and later apply on baby’s tongue. It is done daily to improve digestions and prevent colic. My mother swears by it. But I was not ready to use these burnt herbs as I was not able to find a lot of details on the internet.
After a lot of arguing back and fourth we finally spoke to our doctor who luckily was a south Indian. He told me the benefits of these herbs and told me about drops that contains this composition.
He said that it is hygienically prepared and is very safe.
My take: my baby was already 3 months by the time I started these drops. She did not like the taste at all and started spitting. Though I found it helping a lot, I did not want to force her.
I think you should start off well in advance but always consult your pediatrician before you start off with this medicine.
