I remember the very first time I heard about gripe water. It was at 2 am and my daughter Sophie was about 4 weeks old. She had been up all night screaming. I was a first time mom and I was clueless. I had no idea what to do or how to help her.
I was browsing some mom groups on Facebook and just lurking the posts. I noticed a couple of moms had mentioned “gripe water”. I thought it was a typo.
decided to make my own post. At this point it was 2:30am- I was not expecting anyone to respond to my “baby won’t stop crying, please help!” Post. But right away I received a ton of comments. “Mommy’s Bliss.” One mom said. “Yes! Mommy’s Bliss is the best!” Another mom commented. Hmm…I thought. Okay, off to google.
So I did some research and it turns out Mommy’s Bliss Gripe Water is highly recommended and it had great reviews. I sent my husband out that minute! (3am) and I told him to make sure he got “Mommy’s Bliss” Gripe Water! He came back and we gave it to Sophie and ahhhh, relief! She stopped crying! From that moment on, it’s been my saving grace, my go-to, my Hail Mary, and my absolute must have favorite baby product.
This is now my go-to baby shower gift to new moms. I tell every mom I can about it because it’s given my baby so much relief it’s amazing. I now have a new baby! He has his share of tummy issues. Gas and hiccups keeping him up at night but I was prepared this time! I now give him my Mommy’s Bliss Gripe Water (I love the nighttime version) and he sleeps like, well, he sleeps like a baby!
