Gripe water was a lifesaver for me and my daughter.  I tried all the gas drops and they would work for a bit but it would never last any amount of time and i felt like i was giving her something she really didn't need with the gas drops too.  I felt her tummy hurt but it wasn't always just gas.  The gripe water would calm her down so quick and it would last too.  It would turn off her hiccups and make her tummy feel better.  It would help us drive long distances when i knew her tummy hurt too because she was ready to get out of the car.  It helped her sleep at night and for naps too.  My mom used gripe water with me because we didn't have gas drops when i was little and I used it with my daughter only after the gas drops didn't work.  Had i known about gripe water before hand i would have never used gas drops to begin with.  I will try gripe water before i use gas drops with my next baby. So not only does it help colic but just babies with gas or even acid reflux too.

Little Tummy gripe water not as effective as Woodward's

After what seemed like weeks of evening "colic" cries, my friend suggested I try gripe water.  It had worked wonders for her child. She gave me a bottle of Woodward's gripe water and I tried it with extreme caution and doubt.  Within 15 minutes of the first dose, my infant (7 weeks old) was so calm and happy the entire evening without gas or hiccups.  I only gave her half of the recommended dose twice a day for a week and she responded well! She would give loud adult sounding burps with it.  When that bottle ran out, I bought Little Tummy's version.  My baby does not like the taste of it and cries when I give it to her.  There seems to be some relief but not to the extent of the Woodward's. She still would have hiccups and painful gas.

There is debate on the sodium bicarbonate use in babies so do your research.  I feel like using the smallest effective dose for a limited time probably is not harmful but it is not FDA approved.  Both products contain it but the Woodward's combination works the best!  European countries and Canada have used it regularly for years as first choice of colic relief.  My plan is to only use it 2 to 3 times per day at half dose for a few more weeks when colic symptoms are naturally supposed to resolve.

Tried this for colic, was not very effective.

By 

from USA

Comments about Little Tummy's Gripe Water:

This was my first choice when I was desperate to find a solution for my daughter's colic pain. It may have helped a little with her discomfort but I honestly couldn't tell the difference. She screamed and cried despite anything, and we moved on to try Colic Calm. It was really something she just had to grow out of.

Gripe water stopped hiccups almost immediatly

By 

from Winston Salem, NC

Comments about Little Tummy's Gripe Water:

I bought this as an alternative when my infant was diagnosed with acid reflux. It cut down on the spit up a little, but not enough to keep her off of zantac. It does work great on hiccups. My baby would get deep hiccups that would sometimes last 30min. If I would give her Gripe Water, they would stop almost immediatly.

Amazing how well this works!

By 

from Stafford, VA

Comments about Little Tummy's Gripe Water:

I absolutely love this product and could not possible live without it.  My poor daughter till about 3 months got hiccups pretty much every days and from 3 months on now that she is older everytime she laughs even a little she has hiccups for an hour.  I give her the littlest bit (don't even need the full dosage) and her hiccups are instantly gone! I tried a couple of different cheaper versions of it and not only did they not work but they also clearly tasted horrible because she hated them! I would definetly recommend and any every little tummies products.. The cheaper brands just never do do the trick.

Gripe water helped colicky baby

By 

from Monroe, LA

Comments about Little Tummy's Gripe Water:

My baby had issues with gas when she was 8 weeks old. I am a South Asian and we have gripe water back home and I was not sure if I will be bale to get the same here. After a colicky episode with my little one myself and my husband went to Toys R US and after a little asking around  found Little Tumys Gripe water in the aisles and we were relieved.

It sure did help her tummy and we continued to give gripe water along with mylicon and that seemed to help her a lot.

I felt so lucky to have had found the same kind of product that we used to have back home.

They are a little expensive though.

I believe one of the ingredients is fennel and we called it fennel water back home.

But I guess they dont have any preservatives or artifical flavors hence the price. They are truly worth it.

I would like to get them using coupons though as they are a little  pricier.

So thanks to Little Tummys.

Gripe water can fix your colicky baby in no time!

By 

from Lascassas, TN

Comments about Little Tummy's Gripe Water:

A friend of mine intoduced me to gripe water. My son was a very gassy baby. All he did was cry and cry and I coud not get him to feel better. His stomach was always hurting him. I tried all the gas drops they have out in th store and that never seemed to work. So when she told me about gripe water, I went right to the store. As soon as I got home, I put it in the fridge to let get cold and gave him some. As soon as I gave him some, he calmed down and went right to sleep! This stuff was a life saver! Everytime he would cry, Id just get th gripe water out and give him a dose. The good thing about this stuff, is it is all natural. Its made from all herbs and perfectly safe for any age baby. They say it works best in the fridge. The only thing I did not like about the product was that it expires like a month after you buy it or well mine did. I wish I would of known about this stuff when my oldest was born, he cried all day and night!! This is the only medication that has ever helped out my little on now. I would recommend it to anyone.

You Don't Need a Spoonful of Sugar to Help This Medicine Go Down

By 

from Grand Prairie, TX

Comments about Little Tummy's Gripe Water:

After searching A LONG time for a healthy tummy soothing medicine for my preschoolers, I finally came across Little Tummy's Gripe Water. Keep it refrigerated after opening and whenever you are awakened in the middle of the night by a tiny tummy-ached toddler, you can feel good giving them a dropper of this. Safe for babies 2 weeks and older, with colic, upset stomach, and hiccups. All of the LittleRemedies products are made without unnecessary additives so babies have less side effects and parents less worries!

My children had no problem with the taste.

The only downside that I have found is that it is recommended to discard six weeks after opening, due to reduced potency.

I recommend getting a smaller bottle so you have less chance of wasting.

I, personally, didn't think Little Tummies Gripe Water was to pricey, especially when you take into consideration the cost of typical over-the-counter medicines.

Not as good as others but it works for us

By 

from Herrin, IL

Comments about Little Tummy's Gripe Water:

I have found that this is one of the cheaper of the gripe waters. The only one that I haven't tried was the 20.00 one its called colic calm. From reading the ingredients on it it seems to have more stuff compared to little tummy's Kroger brand walmart brand and a couple others. I have noticed the cheaper one have only like 2 ingredients in them. As far as for colic my son has it bad and it was touch and go if it worked for him. But for gas and hiccups and upset stomach it seemed to work pretty well. I would recommended it to anyone that asked about it. I find it works well with stomach issues and such. I think if it had more than two ingredients it in that it might have full effect on colic. Like mentioned Colic Calm has more stuff in it all natural that seems like it would work better than the cheaper ones as when looking into the ingredients they seem to have relaxing effects so it might actually work. As I know that its not FDA approved im pretty sure none of them actually are. Its a matter of opinion on wither or not you want to use something like this. I personally dont mind since it is all natural and my pediatrician said that if we want to we can use it. So if you feel uneasy you can ask your dr.

Also it tastes horrible espically if you dont like the taste of licirous. But babies seem to not mind the taste of it. 

And from what i have heard that it also works on adults. And if your pregnant it might help since it has ginger in it and thats what they say that helps settle your stomach when you have morning sickness

I is pretty good.

By 

from Grosse Pointe, MI

Comments about Little Tummy's Gripe Water:

This is the kind of product that most people want to try, but the cost is just too much.  It is worth it if it works, but a giant waste if it does not.  I tried this product and I liked it.  I do think that the cost is too much though.  The cost has kept me from buying it a lot.  I have two children and I have bought three bottles total of it.  One of those bottles was for a friend's baby as part of her shower gift.  My youngest child ( twenty two months) likes the taste and the smell, so I am willing to buy it again.  He has no problem taking it with juice or by itself.  My oldest child won't take anything.  Once in a while you can find a store coupon for it, but not much. I think that the product did work a little bit for my kids.   My baby is still young to ask, but it seemed to at least take the edge off of their tummy aches.  I am lucky, because I never had to use it for chronic colic or anything like that.  I would buy another bottle again.

A miracle potion.

By 

from Omaha, NE

Comments about Little Tummy's Gripe Water:

We use it constantly from the birth till 5 months and every time it makes our daughter stop crying within 5-10 minutes. It works!!!! This stuff is some kind of a miracle potion - especially if you think that it can be his tummy bothering him. We actually give it to our daughter when nothing else seemed to make her stop crying. And I should say that about halfway through the dose and my baby starts to smile to me.This stuff is crazy good. And I should add that our baby was diagnosed with the reflux-disease so maybe because of that it works so well for as. It has Chamomile in it and it helps with reflux. We give it to our daughter when she has hiccups as well and it works all the way. And I love the fact that it has not unnecessary additives in it such as sugar like other gripe water do. So overall we love this stuff and can not live without it and can recommend it for every new moms. I buy this product to add to our baby shower gifts as must have product.
