Uses for gripe water for a newborn
When my daughter was born, we decided to breastfeed, and I didn't want to put anything else in her body except breast milk. If I ever have another baby, I will make an exception for gripe water.
Gripe water is an herbal liquid supplement that contains often contains ginger, fennel, or both. It is indicated to be used to ease gas and stomach discomfort often associated with colic, gas, hiccups, and teething.
For us, it stops hiccups on the spot. It's amazing--I'll even take a swig when I have hiccups, and they stop immediately. It appears to be safe after baby is about two weeks old, and the dosage is scalable based on age and weight. My personal favorite brand is Mommy's Bliss.
