How do I know if my baby has colic?

For colicky babies, gripe water is a natural, soothing supplement that helps ease gas and stomach discomfort, as well as other discomfort often associated with gas, hiccups and teething. Colic generally occurs in babies between two to four weeks old and it can last until three or four months old; it’s sometimes referred to as persistent crying and it occurs in babies who are otherwise generally healthy.

Signs that you have a colicky baby include:
  • Excessive crying even though your baby is otherwise healthy and feeding well
  • Your baby experiences intense crying episodes and is inconsolable
  • Your baby arches his/her back while crying, or pulls his/her legs up toward the chest
  • Your baby cries excessively at the same time every day, generally in the late afternoon or evening

It’s easy for parents to feel overwhelmed, worried and frustrated about soothing their crying babies. Mommy’s Bliss gripe water offers all-natural herbal relief in liquid form to soothe your baby’s discomfort and it’s also pediatrician recommended. Parents who are hesitant about giving their babies medicines that contain unnatural additives or harsh chemicals need not worry because our gripe water is made from organic ginger and fennel, contains no artificial colors or flavors and is 100% vegetarian and vegan.
