hello mommies n experts .. I have heard n also read alot about gripe water.. what's that n how it helped the babies???



Ritika Tondwal

Doctors don't recommend it any longer. My baby had colic so I was very tempted to go down that route. It was a hard few months but he grew out of it eventually. I would let Nature take its course.

My MIL says it's made of fennel n water only Which is good for baby's stomach n she used to give it to my daughter as soon as she started crying😕my pedestrian told me not to give any janamghutti sort of thing so was little worried for my baby but fortunately nothing went wrong.But still it's not recommended.

Gripe water colicaid or any other preparation should not be given to the baby without the doctor's prescription. Some brands of gripe water even have some alcohol in it and this is not safe.
