  • i'v never heard of an alergic reaction to gripe water. my dd never had a problem with it. but the only way you are going to find out is if you give her some. maybe start with a really small amount and wait a while then if she does okay give her more.

  • It always helped my boys when they were either teething, or gassy or just had an upset stomach, etc. It's good stuff.

  • I was also worried, so I started by dipping his binky in it and then worked my way up. He did fine. He had terrible acid reflux. It wasn't a miracle cure but it did seem to soothe him at times. Good luck.
