Is it safe at this age? if so, how many drops? thanks!

yes, I used it in my sons bath from 3 months to sooth him after his feeding troubles. depends on how big your bath is. in his baby bath I used 2 drops but when he got into the big main bath it was 5 drops but then I used high altitude lavender oil which is the best for theraputic use which is what any self respecting aromatherapist would use too, cos its not just smelly!! l.htm
the one I used

thank you, misi (once again - can you become my personal therapist?!)
I thought a few drops might be too many but our bath is quite big so will use several; anything for a decent night's sleep!

and try to get some lavender water and splash a bit on the sheet underneath the her pillow, worked a treat for my son.
