  • I have given it to my little one but its been a while....I give her tylenol more often then gripe water (if you arent sure if its pain then try 1/2 a dose) or use gas drops or orajel depending on the problem. I ended up using the gripe water for my tummy bloated troubles and it worked.....the Bliss Water even has an adult dosage on the back.

  • I gave it to my son when he was a couple months old and was screaming like crazy and I could not get him to stop. The instant I gave it to him he feel asleep and slept a long time.

  • Gripe water works awesome for my son. It is natural so I feel better giving it to him than I would tylenol. It calms him within minutes. It comes in a few different flavors and kinds. Maybe you want to try a new brand? I like Baby's Bliss Original Flavor the best and my son had no problem wioth the taste. I have also used Wellements and Colic Calm brands, they both work well too but are more expensive. You can add Baby's Bliss to a bottle but I wouldn't want to waste pumped breast milk if he might reject the bottle. Maybe you could add it to 2-3 oz and see if he'll take it.
