honey for your baby

I wouldn't recommend to give wild honey to your baby, because it's a good source of a very dangerous bacteria C. botulinum that can cause botulism. It's was a normal practice in my family to give honey with worm milk when we(babies,children) got cold or flu. Even today I like to drink warm milk and put a little bit of honey, but would try to avoid such practice if I'd have a little baby.

    Yeah, I always thought it was recommended to wait until babies are over a year to give them honey. Otherwise raw honey is very good for us.

    We do use it sometimes instead of sugar, especially in baking. I like it when any sore throats start to come on and we'll have lemon and honey tea. I like having honey and peanut butter on toast. I like it in my regular decaf tea. It has so many good enzymes in it that it's just good for you in general. I recently learned you can even put honey on wounds because of the good bacteria in it, which I didn't even think to do.

    My mom always gave us a spoonful of honey when we had a sore throat she said "you gotta get rid of this so you can feed or own damn horses and clean up their crap"

    Lucky you! That's awesome! My daughter and I worked at a stable in exchange for lessons for three months and they had 19-21 horses at any given time. All we had to do was feed them in the morning and turn them out. We really enjoyed it.
