Hiya hope every1 and bumps r wel
I was jst wondering how much raspberry leaf tea u shud drink and if it is possible to drink too much?

I think from 32 weeks you can drink 1 mug a day-which you slowly increase to up to 4 mugs.
Im not 100% sure though, I bought some and all it says on it is for use in late pregnancy and not early pregnancy (but thats not a lot of help as differnt people will have a differnt idea of what late pregnancy is) xxx

I've been doing what FlyingKiwi says, I started with one cup a day and I'm now 36+2 and drinking three cups a day (when Millie lets me have a cup of tea lol)

I was the same to start with, I really like it and had to force myself not to drink more. I am getting a bit bored of it now though!

Hi its advised that you shouldnt take raspberry leaf tea til your past the 36 week mark, as it strengthens the uterus and can cause problems before this. I'm just going off what it says in my pregnancy books though as ive never used it x

I think that the tea is ok from 32 weeks. The capsules that you can get are much stronger, so only safe from 36 weeks but the tea has less active ingredient.

Colic & reflux! Help!
Hi all! My LO is 3 weeks & 1 day. Around 11 days ago, I recognised signs of colic and my HV confirmed she believed he was suffering with colic too. It always began at 9pm for a few hours. We changed baby bottles and began giving him Infacol. We noticed a slight improvement but he was still screaming! We battled on as Infacol takes a while to work. Sunday evening he began crying at 6pm and it carried on all night and at 10:30am on Monday, I took him to the doctors, still crying and screaming 😭. The minute the doctor called us, he fell asleep. She thinks he also has reflux so gave us infant gaviscon. She recommended us trying Colic cow & gate also. So, we began with Gaviscon and started Colief instead (the dr didn’t rate Infacol).. with the new milk and he slept wonderfully! The bout of colic that evening lasted 20 mins and that was it! Next night (last night), it came back with a vengeance. He’s screamed all night, he’s refused milk, he’s drank the odd 2oz here and there, he’s straining and crying, his legs and arms are wild, he eventually managed a poo which was brown and sticky! 💩 it’s now 10am and he has finally fallen asleep - in my arms. Ive booked him in with a chiropractor as I’ve heard great things and I’m still using colic bottles and Colief.. please can someone offer any advice. I’m at a total loss. I’ve not slept in a fortnight and I really can’t watch him in agony until this stops - in a few months time 😳😩
