    we have used gripe water since DS was a couple weeks old. it worked for EVERYTHING. hiccups, gas, stomach aches, constipation, etc. i swear by it. i dont know what i would have done without it.

    i use gripe water for my dd and love it; she had bad gas cramps and we'd give her some at night and in the morning--it helped so much for us. my dh thinks you can give her some whenever she's cranky (he always tells me she had a stomachache when i was out, but i know she can't magically have a stomachache everytime i leave)

    try it and see if it helps

    I've been just using mylicon drops and they seem to work. But I've been reading alot about gripe water and have had some people say they like it better than the mylicon drops. Should I try them since mylicon is working? Is gripe water cheaper?
    for over a year now!!!

    they're about equal in price, give or take a couple of bucks depending on where you buy from.. the gripe water is harder to find IMO..it's not in the drugstores here, we had to go to an organic grocery store and then ordered online@ amazon b/c it was just easier that way...

    THAT freaks me out! I highly recommend Wellements Organic gripe water! It's so thin and not a nasty color! It's also not sweet.

    That creeps me out about the Colic Calm!!! YUCK!
