Shake well. Remove cap and the seal. Insert the adapter plug, smooth side up, by pushing downward and twisting until a tight seal is made. Top of plug should be flush with neck and not removable.

We have recently changed the suggested use directions of our products to reduce the amount given per serving for younger infants but to increase the possible frequency of administration.
The total maximum amount (volume) consumed per day would remain the same with the new instructions.
We have made this change to help some parents who found that giving the entire suggested amount per
Serving to their infant in one sitting was challenging.
If you and your child have found that the previous use instructions work well for you, then by all means you can feel safe in continuing to follow those.
- This product works great. I absolutely love it. I recommend it to all the moms that I know that are going through the same things. Thank you for making such a wonderful product. - Cathy L

Gripe water is a time-tested formula that has been used for more than 100 years throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, India and the Caribbean to relieve discomfort from colic, gas and hiccups. Our gentle liquid formula contains fennel seed, ginger root and sodium bicarbonate, which are historically known to ease occasional discomfort caused by stomach gas and other colic symptoms in infants.*
Is Gripe Water safe for babies?
All of our Gripe Water ingredients are carefully selected, appear on the FDA’s Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) list, and are held to our exacting quality assurance requirements. Our manufacturers follow strict standards, guidelines and procedures for quality and safety, and each product must pass additional analytical and microbiological tests before we offer it to you. Our Gripe Water is also, of course, protected by a safety seal, and is NSF certified for purity.
Does Gripe Water need to be refrigerated?
No! Our Gripe Water contains natural preservatives and doesn’t need to be refrigerated, unlike some other formulas out there. Enjoy one less thing to keep in mind as you care for your new baby (especially when gas or colic comes to town).
How should I give Gripe Water to my baby?
You can administer Gripe Water orally with a dropper, or with an empty bottle after feedings. (And you can even sip some yourself! Gripe Water helps with occasional gas and stomach upset in adults, too.*)
For babies 2-6 weeks old: 1 mL up to 15 times a day
For babies 6-10 weeks old: 2 mL up to 15 times a day
For babies 10 weeks – 6 months old: 5 mL up to 6 times a day
Glycerol, a sugar alcohol, gives our Gripe Water its sweet taste without adding sugar. An FDA-approved food additive, glycerol is a building block of triglycerides (AKA fats), and so is already present in all diets. It’s metabolized with roughly the same calories per gram as sugar, with about half the sweetness. No other sweetener is added – your baby is sweet enough!
