hi pls don't give gripe water to ur baby . it's not good . true back in days our elders have used it  but pls don't succumb to their pressure . if they insist take them along with u to ur doc during ur next visit so that they to understand that gripe water is not recommended for babies.

shikha Singh

no recommended nowadays

Harneet (clanpedia)

there is no need to give anything to baby. pls tell ur elders that a baby's body is adjusting. his digetive system is still developing. a child who grows naturally without the help of any medicines is way better than a child who is on medicines. let the child grow naturally. he will be fine by 3-4 months.

Akansha Sharma

no need to give gripe water..instead burp your baby after every feed by gently patting on the back in up and down motion..if you feel that your baby is gassy or uneasy apply heeng aur aesofotedia (mixing it in Luke warm water forming a pasty consistency) on and around 1 inch area of your baby's navel.
