  • I think it says on the bottle. I don't know I've never had to use it but I would imagine a small amt if you are able to at that age.

  • i had to use gripe water and mylicon when my baby was only 1 week old. i had to use it almost every day till she was 3 months. she was SO gassy and spit up constantly. like every time she ate at least half of it. not projectile vomitting, just spit up. the grip water helped with the spitting up, and the mylicon with the Gas. (they make a walmart brand mylicon too, same exact thing, 1/4 the cost!)

  • Yes. My doctor actually recommened it for hiccups and colic.

  • Or weak (organic, if you have it) chamomile tea and Hylands colic drops.

  • I used weak peppermint tea for emma.. cause she had a hard time in the beginning with colic.. also used the gripe water and it worked wonders!
