Woodward's Gripe Water is the world's first brand of Gripe Water. The result is usually a resounding and satisfied burp from your baby. This dual action soothes the baby's tummy and provides relief from stomach pain.

Gripe water is AMAZING! our first time using it was 4am when my husband and i had spent the entire night trying to help our sons tummy ache but no matter what we did he screamed in pain. we looked up remedies on the internet and thats where we found gripe water.. he ran to all te 24 hour places until he found it at walgreens as soon as we gave it to him we heard his belly gurgle then he burped and farted.. then fell asleep .. it was amazing!. walgreens has the baby remedies brand on sale for 3.00 a bottle. which its usually 10.00 - 13.00 so if you have one nearby i would stock up.

I use gripe water in every single bottle it is a miracle for me and my baby boy, he just screams for hours sometimes but ever since i have used this he is a new baby, I would recommend this gripe water to anyone whose baby has colic!!!!!!

We used it a lot along with the Mylicon drops. My little guy had hiccups all the time and it helps get rid of those also. My lactation consultant actually recommended it. Great product, I used Baby Bliss and it does have an expiration date.

Gripe water is the best!!! It soothed my sons tummy aches, cured hiccups and worked like a dream during his colicky time. I also use Oval Drops, or Lil Tummy's works great as well to help with extra gas he gets when he power feeds. I never leave home without it now. I just bought whatever the brand was at the local walmart or pharamacy. Definately go for it. Its non addictive and you can use if for years. I even gave it to my step daughter when she got a real bad case of the hiccups one day and she was 2!

OMG......I love gripe water!! Benjamin, now 4 months old, was such a colicky baby and I hadn't that problem with my first child. A friend suggested it to me and I was willing to try anything. Much to my surprise, it really seemed to soothe his belly and allowed him to be comfortable. I had to use it quite often during the first 2 months and I'm glad I did! Baby Bliss was the brand name that I found helped the most. I hope it works for you if you choose to try it.

Absolutely loved it. If my keyboards exclamation point worked, there'd be several after that. My now 10 month old daughter had some serious belly issues (we had to use Enfamil Gentlease with her) and the Mylicon just wasn't helping enough. We started putting Gripe Water in her bottle at each feeding and it was a life saver. We gave it to her at every feeding and she went from screaming till she was red in the face from her belly hurting to calmly eating her meals. Complete 180 for her. It helped my daughter better than I'd have ever believed and was a sanity saver for myself and husband. I will say that it was hard to find in my area, so I had to buy several bottles at once. I could only find it at a local pharmacy (which I happened to work at) at not at Walmart. Target carries it but they're about an hour from us. If this is your case too, stock up and always ALWAYS be sure to have them keep it on hand for you. Lots of pharmacies (usually locally owned ones) will be happy to order it for you.
There's a Baby Bliss Gripe Water and I believe Little Tummies Gripe Water. Good luck and hope this helps.
