Do you remember the famous slogan “Granny told Mother and Mother told me.” Yea, our very own gripe water. My sister is a lot younger to me and I remember finishing off all her gripe water when I was a kid. Even now I love to taste it once in a while but it’s too sweet for my liking now.
Initially a lot of people recommended the product to me, but as the doctor had asked me to exclusively breastfeed for 6 months, I refused to try this.
My baby was a colicky child and she would cry every evening with pain till we used colicaid drops which was chemically made. So after my baby turned 3 months, I started her with gripe water twice daily. I followed the measurements on the bottle
From the wikipedia:
Gripe water is a home remedy for infants with colic, gastrointestinal discomfort, teething pain, reflux and other stomach ailments. Its ingredients vary, and may include alcohol, a bicarbonate, ginger, dill, fennel and chamomile. It is typically given to an infant with a dropper in liquid form, and adults may also take gripe water for soothing intestinal pains, gas or other stomach ailments.
Composition: sodium bicarbonate is the main ingredient; it also has dill and fennel oils
Right now it provides some relief for teething.
One disadvantage: It does not come with a dropper so I have to use droppers from other medicines.
For kids above 8 months, you can add a tbsp of gripe water in their water
