    Ok, I'm answering my own question here, lol. But I found this on Kellymom and thought I'd post in case anyone else had the same question.

    Chamomile is considered safe by the FDA, with no known adverse effects in pregnancy, lactation, or childhood. Chamomile tea is commonly used by nursing moms for relaxation. It can also be used to prevent/fight off fungal infections. Patients with severe allergies to ragweed should be warned about possible cross-reactivity to chamomile and other members of the aster family (e.g., echinacea, feverfew, and milk thistle). It should not be taken in conjunction with other sedatives, such as benzodiazapines or alcohol. More info can be found in the article, A Review of 12 Commonly Used Medicinal Herbs.
