How does Woodward’s Gripe Water work?

Mothers and nannies first used the original gripe water in England in the 1850s, it contained alcohol, which people used to think relaxed babies. Of course, modern science suggests that giving alcohol to babies can be toxic. In recent times, believers in Grip Water believe the ingredients in some gripe water formulas such as liquorice, dill, ginger and fennel help relieve gas and stomach discomfort (and in turn may be beneficial for infants with colic, which is thought to be caused at least in part by gas). Some experts believe gripe water might be effective at soothing fussy babies simply because it tastes sweet.

Woodward’s Gripe Water should be given to babies when they cry. Woodward’s gripe water should not be provided more than 6 times in 24 hours. If after giving 6 doses of Woodward’s gripe water, a baby does not relax, then speak to a paediatrician or doctor.

When shouldn’t I take Woodward’s Gripe Water?

Woodward’s gripe water should not be given to babies who suffer from impaired kidney function or hypersensitivity to hydroxybenzoate. Babies with rare hereditary problems such as fructose intolerance must not be given Woodward’s gripe water.

What is the difference between Woodward’s Gripe Water and Mylicon?
