Q:

Can i give gripe water and vitamin D to my baby on the day of vaccination? My baby has gas and he is crying continuously. I m confused what should i give to my baby , gripe water or calpol drops. It's urgent.

Don't give vitamin drops, n give calpol as it paracetamol n helps in fever..for gas u should take ajwain water..

Vit d can be given. Calpol is for fever,why choose between them? If he has fever,give as per ur docs advise. Dont give gripe water,ask doc for some drops to relieve gas. Meanwhile you can apply heeng paste on navel and burp him after every feed. Do make him exercise in cycling motion and fold his knees towards stomach for few minutes and repeat. This will help!

I usually give him gripe water whenever he has gas. He cries becz of gas. But when i give him gripe water he stops crying and sleeps well. Today he was also crying and i was confused whether it's becz of gas or injection. I have given him gripe water and he is sleeping now but just a few mins ago he cried out of pain while sleeping. His temparature is also getting high. Feeling very sad.

Hi Anon,if fever is high plz give calpol as doc suggested. If you have been giving gripe water,then its ur choice but dont forget to give fever medication,its required!
