The benefits of gripe water versus Simethicone gas drops

If your baby is suffering from colic and you’re searching for a gentle yet effective cure, consider Mommy’s Bliss gripe water. On average, one in five babies have colic or exhibit colic-like symptoms, so although you may feel alone in your frustration, you aren’t – and relief is available. Colic is best described as excessive or intense crying in babies who are otherwise healthy and feeding well; it generally begins between two to three weeks old and generally ends when babies are between three to four months old.

There are a variety of remedies on the market for colic, but we recommend using gripe water rather than Simethicone gas drops because:


  • Simethicone, a chemical anti-foaming ingredient, only works to relieve gas and not any other symptoms of colic
  • In a study done by the University of Michigan, which you can read here, Simethicone was not proven effective in relieving colic in infants
  • Mommy’s Bliss gripe water is made with organic fennel and ginger, is fast-acting, requires no refrigeration after opening and is the #1 selling natural supplement for colic and gas


Parents are understandably concerned about which medicines they give their babies and some prefer to avoid artificial colors, ingredients and harsh chemicals. All of the Mommy’s Bliss products, including gripe water, are made from naturally-derived ingredients, are BPA-free, are hypoallergenic, contain no parabens and are vegetarian. We believe in creating gentle, all-natural and effective products that are good for your baby as well as good for the earth and the environment.

We understand that you may feel frustrated, overwhelmed and concerned if your baby has colic, but rest assured it will pass. Mommy’s Bliss gripe water can help ease the discomfort and give your baby relief. For more information, please feel free to contact us today. We look forward to hearing from you!
