  • Gripe water is basically flat ginger ale, you can even let ginger ale open in your fridge until it goes flat, its really the ginger in it, ginger is a natural pain reliever and helps to balance acid in the stomach, thats why when you are pregnant your dr says "drink ginger ale for the nausea"

  • This stuff saved my sanity! My son ( 3months) had colic since day 1. This stuff worked wonders for that and the gas he has. We called it Ginger Ale for babies! It's expensive but well worth the $$$$
