You should try Gripe Water. I had never heard of it until my baby girl (now 5 weeks old) was born with stomach probs. It is natural and has ginger in it to help settle the stomach. Its also good for colic and really does get rid of hiccups if given to them soon after getting them. You can buy this at toys r us, and other places. The kind I have is made by little tummies

I may actually be facing the same thing in a mater of hours as my 5 year old has a violent stomach virus - Hoping my 6 week old does not get it but I called the Ped and was told that if 6 week old gets the virus use Pedialyte if necessary.

Ask your ped. about Gripe Water it has been doing wonders for my baby girl ( now 12 wks).  Also my ped suggest a little bit of camermele tea (sorry about spelling) to help sooth belly problems but again ask your ped. first.

ummm at 5 weeks thats a hard one... we used gripe water with our daughter for her tummy upsets and it really helped... the fennel in it is an old indian remedy for upset bellies and it works wonders. if you arent keen to use the gripe water you can try to drink some water boiled with fennel seeds in it if she is a boobie baby...but there is no meds in the gripe water and its all natural... so i'd give it a go for her sake.



good luck!! hope your princess feels better soon!!
