Reply: What are you talking about?!!! You really need to get that straight before worrying a mother on here! Its specifically FOR babies and is recommended generations past and present! Im going to go get my bottle!.....
Ok back, ingredients are as follows: Dill Seed oil,
Sodium hydrogen carbonate
And in addition, the active ingredients are as follws:
Glycerol, Propylene Glycol, Maltilol liquid, Sodium ethyl parahydroxybenzoate, disodium edetate, and purified water!
So where exactly does it say about the alcohol content?! And if any of those are alcohol in some form, they are in the tiniest amounts, goodness me.
Its a good option for upset tummies in any way, and it can be given frequently too.

upset tummies and hiccups..it kinda helps with spitting up due to tummy problems. But not a WHOLE lot.If the spit up is really bad you should look into changing the formula.My baby switched from Similac Soy to Similac Sensitive and is doing much better. Also teething makes a baby spit up.She didn't spit up with the 1st 2 teeth..but the top ones are really bothering her :(

Yeah, I never heard of gripe water with alcohol in it either. I use Baby Bliss which is all natural (tastes pretty good too). It helps calm down Courtney's belly aches and helps with her hiccups. But it doesn't help spitting up. That's normal for babies. If your baby is spitting up BAD, than you might need to change their formula (if bottle feeding). I don't know what to do if you are breastfeeding. Good luck!! And I would recommand gripe water...it really DOES help!

My husband and I use Gripe Water for our 6 week old son. We've tried 2 brands, Baby Bliss and Little Tummies. The Baby Bliss Apple Flavor seems to agree with our son the best. It does work wonders!
