Hey Kiran! How old is your baby? If he is any younger than 8 months, do not feed cardamom to him in any form. If he is older than that, then yes you can boil cardamom in milk and give it to him but just make sure you strain the cardamom out before feeding the milk to them.

It would be better if you don’t feed cardamom to your baby if they are any younger than 8 months. You can introduce it to them after 8 months. Even after that make sure to give it in a controlled quantity and in a form that would be easily digestable.
