While it has not been completely tested in newborn babies, catnip has been used in adults to treat many common symptoms of anxiety and catnip has been shown to improve mood and relieve nausea and other symptoms of anxiety. However, it has not been completely tested on the nervous system or on sensory neurons, so it's best to take another approach if you're pregnant. You shouldn't drink catnip tea while you're pregnant, because it can cause too much tiredness and slowdown in newborns and young children, so you should instead take another remedy. However, if you're taking oral catnip, you should watch for any changes in your newborn's behavior because it can affect his or her sleep patterns.
In older cats, catnip can have an increased sedation effect and help with an upset stomach, but you should avoid dried catnip plant altogether. Cats can eat dried catnip, but when they try to hold it in their mouths for a long period of time, they may choke.
