  • I have it at home but it was really dark and charcoal like so I didn't end up giving it to her. I have tried other types of Gripe Water and yes...they work. My favorite kind is actually called Kolik but they only distribute in Canada. There is a website that ships to the US called This stuff is amazing! I always get the alcohol free version and it is amazing! It only has 2 ingredients and for some reason it just seems to consolidate the air bubbles and get them out. I used to give it to my daughter right before her last feeding at night. She would toot all the way through the feeding and then let out a huge burp at the very end. Then she'd sleep all night! I swear this is why my daughter slept through the night so early. Nobody tells you about how upset babies get over gas!!!

  • I used gripe water and it helped. I also liked it because it was natural.

  • Try sitting on an exercise ball holding your baby and gently bounce up and down. Usually worked like a charm for us!
