Gripe water?

[deleted account] ( 2 moms have responded )

On several posts I've seen people recommending Gripe water. What is that? Until I joined here, I've never heard of it. What is it used for and what ages?

Gripe water is a natural liquid solution which provides relief for babies and children suffering from minor stomach discomforts due to gas, colic and hiccups. Handed down from generation to generation, it has been used in many parts of the world, particularly Europe, for more than one hundred years.

It contains

* Anise to aid digestion

* Angelica to soothe upset stomach

* Caraway to relieve flatulence and indigestion

* Chamomile to settle the stomach

* Fennel for stomach upset, hiccups, gas

* Ginger to ease nausea and other digestive problems

some also contain Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to decrease stomach acidity and Cinnamon bark to aid digestion and relieve flatulence and vomiting
