Has anyone used gripe water for a gassy baby? What do you really think..

Our son who is a little over three weeks old is so gassy and wakes himself up many times kicking and grunting and pushing. Was wondering if this gripe water has worked at all for your child or has helped with any symptoms. And what kind of gripe water did you use? Thank You so much for any information!! Suzy..

  • Mylacon works great too . We could not have lived without it . And you can give them like 12 doses a day if you have to because it is so safe .

  • We used chamomile tea; I drank it by the gallon, and we gave our baby an ounce at night.
