Woodward's Gripe Water 150ml now 97p @ Sainsburys

21
Found 24th Jun 2011
I think it is the most effective traditional remedy from colic, rapid relief

This is the cheapest price I saw. It is £2.45 @Boots and £1.95 @Asda, Tesco & Ocado

Dual Action.

Gripe is caused by muscle spasms and excess acid created when air bubbles form in a baby's tummy. When the air bubbles get trapped in a baby's stomach, the stomach thinks it is full of food, so acids are produced which would normally break down the food particles. These acids are not needed and can cause irritation. At the same time, because the stomach is full of air bubbles its muscles are unable to relax causing cramps and spasms.



Woodward's Gripe Water contains oil of Dill herb and Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate and brings rapid relief of wind and gripe.

There's no alcohol in this now - that's why it used to work!
Does this work on adults? My mate has always got a nag on about something.
bought some of this today.. My newborn really suffers with wind. We have tried infacol but she still has it bad. Anyone got any suggestions or experiences?
what milk is she on? if she's breastfed make sure you're avoiding anything citrus or spicey, if she's bottle fed maybe change the type of bottle / teat and make sure absolutely no air is in the teat when she feeds.
How old is she and have you spoken to midwife/health visitor yet?

ps, as someone else said, gripe water doesn't work as the alcohol has now been taken out.
Waste of time and money.

try colief, i think, costs about a tenner from chemist. it worked for our nipper
good price
Gripe Water doesn't work. We used infacol, but the best advice is to spend time winding the baby. Upright against a shoulder worked best.
The latest advice being given was, if you are breast feeding you don't need to wind the baby, which is just plain wrong.
Our 5mth old was tortured with wind..nice relaxing warm baths and massage the tummy in circular motions.also moving the legs in a cycling motion whilst baby lies back helps big time with wind and constipation.
Gripe water totally sorts out hiccups with one 2-3ml dose!
when i was abt 5, i downed a whole bottle. i was taken to hospital when my mum found out.

my baby started suffering from colic straight after few days and i had to wait until 1 month so i could start using gripe water (contains dill oil), as i've been told that my mum used to drink dill juce when i was baby and suffered from colic.
the result was positive as i expected.
i started giving 1ml after each feed. after feeding baby falls sleep straight away so i found difficult to winding him up. so gripe water (with dill oil) would bring out big burp even baby is sleeing and also i used give to give it when he is crying and i think gripe water warms up his intestins and give him comfort.
i think all babies different, but we found peace with this gripe water :-). Downside is you can use it only for 14 days after opening
Colief was very expensive for us, but was ready to get it if gripe water would not work. Now my baby is 3 month plus and i am giving gripe water only once in the morning and he is very happy and playful now :-)
I hope you find this useful and good luck

If you have enough space I would advice you to get gym ball (85cm). I bought it from Aldi for £3.99 when I was pregnant to do exercises and it came useful afterwards too.

You may slowly bounce with baby putting tummy to tummy (it warms her tummy and gives comfort) and it will soothe your baby quickly and the best thing is you will not get tired standing upright and useful as exercise to get into shape after delivery :-)

I would recommend it. I think it is more effective for sooting than any swing or bouncer

the only problem with colief is that it's nearly impossible to use if you're breastfeeding as you have to mix it with the milk
I think all babies react differently to different products. While Infacol, Gripe water, Dentinox, Colief etc are common, I recently heard about a so called miracle medicine (for colic) called BioGaia (which was Infacol formerly) available through pcpdirect who are the only distributor in the UK and perhaps that explains the high price. But did anyone try it actually? I don't mind paying extra if it does help.
