Have you used gripe water?

A friend of mine has a little girl, 7 weeks, who gets an upset tummy every time she eats, whether she breastfeeds or formula feeds. I have no experience with gripe water, and my friend is wondering how it works?

  • the ingredients : ginger, fennel and chamomile, ease the pain. With the pressure easing off, the muscles can relax and digest properly and/or release gas properly!
