You can find gripe water at target, walmart, baby's r us. My daughter had colic sooo bad! She slept in her swing the first 4 months of her life, and i even had to put her on liquid zantac for acid reflux. What worked for me is wrapping her up tight and getting her nice and warm. Never layed her down flat, and giving her mylicon. But the gripe water was the best. You cannot over dose her on it. I would take one of her blankets, get it warm in the dryer, not hot, just warm, and wrap it round her belly. keep her head elevated above her tummy as much a possible.

I have been giving some bifidus just before each feeding this has helped some. I have been giving a massage each night at bath time. Where do I find Gripe water?
