What is Gripe Water?
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 the discomfort that infants face from colic, gas, teething and hiccups. Mommy’s Bliss’ gentle liquid formula contains fennel, ginger and sodium bicarbonate, which are historically known to ease the nausea and discomfort caused by stomach gas and other colic symptoms. Fennel and ginger are also effective for easing the discomforts of infant teething.
How Fast Does It Work?
That all sounds great, but how fast does it work? Mommy’s Bliss Gripe Water has been known to work in as little as five minutes after it is administered. That’s serious success! Most babies will need gripe water 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 spit up 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.
Bonus…you can take Mommy’s Bliss Gripe Water too! a 2 tb serving works great for gas, stomach upsets, nausea and hangovers, too!
