how many mommas out there have used this stuff, did it work, and how old were your kids when you started it?

That is what got me through my daughter's first 3 months....she had horrible colic and reflux and I used the Little Tummies Gripe Water and the doctor had me giving her that and gas drops along with hypoallergenic formula from like 4 or 6 weeks.  It works sooooooo good and sometimes it was the only thing that would calm my daughters tummy

I used it at 3 weeks and it definitely stopped the crying...for about 5 minutes.  Axel had really awful gas pains until he was about 5 months old.  I found that Mylicon worked slightly better.

I was wondering about this. DS is 6 MONTHS old and STILL has horrible colic. It's better than it was, but I still dont get much sleep and I get nothing done all day. How much/often and how do you give it to them? Is it straight or mixed in something?

My dd has used it since my grandson was a month old. He gets gassy right before bed so giving him that right before he goes to bed has worked miracles.

Wish I would have known about it when mine were little. Just never heard of it.

it did not work for my daughter but then again, she had really bad colic and reflux.  she actually had to get medicine for her colic.  and they changed her formula for her reflux but it didn't work so we were told to put cereal in her bottles and baby food and it worked a little bit...
