Rooibos (Aspalathus linearis) is a semi-sweet tea touted for its potent antioxidant properties; despite being highly palatable and marketed, the poor absorption of the main bioactive (aspalathin) suggests a limit to its health promoting properties.
Based on this information, I would not give it to a baby. A 3 month old, especially when sick, needs the calories from breastmilk or formula. You'd be filling baby's tummy with a tea that baby can't absorb anyway.
