hello.. i'm looking for any feedback about gripe water..anyone used it, know whether it's safe, etc?
my 5 week old has been tentatively diagnosed w/ reflux..she has been getting fussy at the breast, hiccuping after almost every feeding, crying and grimacing when trying to sleep, UNABLE to sleep/stay asleep, etc.. her ped started us on mylanta yesterday.
we also bought baby's bliss brand gripe water and used it last night..she slept 3 hrs, woke to feed, slept another 3.5, woke to feed, and is currently working on another 2hrs of sleep.. OMG. she hasn't slept for more than 45 min at a time in almost a week.
i'm sort of unsure about the gripe water b/c i see it has a little sodium bicarbonate in it, and i want to be sure it's okay to take it with the mylanta. i'm having a hard time getting a pharm or dr. to "okay" the gripe water since it's homeopathic and therefore not FDA-approved.
