    1. My dear, it is very good to be careful what your baby takes in, Hemani products are nice but i usually prefer buying Hemani black seed oil in a sealed blue steel container with the bottle of oil inside. Another safer option is to buy the seed and grind it to powder, that way you are sure it is 100% black seed; a tiny pinch in your baby's food/pap will is ok.

    1. I am not certain if it can be given to a 2 months old baby but i know it contains Carotene. Carotene is one nutritional component that is very essential for growing kids - infants and toddlers alike. Regular use of black seed gives kids that immunity needed to fight childhood illness and energy to stay active at all times.
