Has anyone heard of gripe water or used it?

Someone told me it was good for the fussiness of teething?

  • its good stuff! its all natural so it cant hurt baby....i used it for my dd's gas...she was restless while she was sleeping...it seemed to help but it also was a lil extra hydration and helped with her poops which were kinda hard at times

  • it's more for tummy upset than teeth pain. I offered it to my son last resort when he had tummy pain during infancy. for teething pain you can use homeopathic remedies like dissolving tablets or a liquid tincture!

  • I would try to cholroseptic max for the teething. It will numb the little mouth long enough for tylenol or motrin to kick in. Gripe water is mostly used for babies with colic and BTW it didn't help my LO at all with her colic.
