Mommy’s Bliss® Gripe Water should be given as needed and not as a preventive measure – after all, it works quickly! To avoid early allergic reactions, we suggest that you wait until your baby is two weeks old and over seven pounds before administering Mommy’s Bliss® Gripe Water. For all other infants and children, give Mommy’s Bliss® Gripe Water at the first signs of discomfort. Most babies will need the product after feedings, when they get gassy from eating too fast or from gulping in air while feeding. It is a good idea to wait 30 minutes after a feeding to administer Gripe Water, as this allows time for food to digest. When it is given too soon, the baby may vomit because he or she may be too full and the ingredients may not mix well with the stomach contents. If a baby is not able to complete a feeding due to gas, he or she may need Gripe Water prior to feeding. By administering the product at different times, you will learn what works best for your baby.
