    Default Gripe water

    Has anyone had any success with using it to help relieve trapped wind in bub? If so, how did you give it to bub? We're trying it bc our LO has always had horrendous trouble with burping enough to get comfortable. She spews less now than she did in the first months, but the trapped wind in tummy is disturbing her sleep more and more. Yes, we've tried every which position to try to get the air out, sometimes for hours on end, and pretty much all the other tips you can think of. Infants friend didn't seem to help much.

    Anyway, my question re gripe water is that the dose is 10ml, which is a lot to get into her. Any suggestions for the best way to administer it?

    Thank you in advance!

    I used to add it into her bottle. I added infacol and infants friend too . I had a reflux bubba. If your LO is on formula try goats milk formula, it’s easier to digest and gentler on bellies.
