Nobody knows?: There are millions of ingredients in the world. Haven't seen a list or public database showing which ingredients are safe (what does "safe" really mean?), in which amounts, in combination with which other ingredients, in what age babies, for how long, for treating which conditions? In general, few ingredients are tested in babies. Parents rightfully don't want their babies experimented upon.
