  • My friend used this gripe water and added it to the childs drink whenever they had gas or were fussy.

  • you just give them the dosage from the dropper when they get gassy. :) i never added to anything, but I was breastfeeding lol.. no bottles.

  • my lil man sucks it right from the oral syringe - he loves it, but take it slow because sometimes he drinks it so fast he upchucks it - ugg! And it is sticky so have a rag ready to wipe any excess up - Good luck! (that stuff is amazing!)

  • ps if he is always gassy - get some mylicon where you give it right before he eats everytime - use the gripe water after he seems like the gas is still stuck (like a second resort) again, good luck! (my lil man is the king of being gassy and gripey)

  • Use it when he's VERY gassy and read the label, DO NOT give him the kind with alcohol in it!!!! And you shouldn't use it too much, there's drops that are better, and affordable..they're called Ovol.

  • With Ovol, your not putting all that sugar crap into him...it's just like baking soda type thing, it coat's his tummy and then he/she poops it out. It doesn't go into they're blood stream and there's NOTHING harmful about it. With the grape water, your end up putting sugar and alcohol into his/her system and it's not good!
