  • People don’t know exactly why gripe water works to , but those who say it does swear by it. An links the efficacy of gripe water to its sweetness, noting that giving a baby a taste of anything sweet might help to calm him down.

    The original gripe water was quite a concoction — it included alcohol, sugar, water, dill oil and sodium bicarbonate. Quite surprisingly, alcohol was taken out of the gripe water formulation only as recently as 1992, probably because there were some reports of adults becoming addicted to gripe water. (And of course, the minor issue of giving alcohol to children).

  • Many companies produce their own gripe water these days, but in Britain, Woodward’s Gripe Water is still the most popular, with some mothers buying numerous bottles at a time to soothe their crying infants. Here is the U.S., gripe water is manufactured by Mommy’s Bliss, Colic Calm, and Little Remedies, among others.

    I’ve tried gripe water and Mylicon myself, and I’ve found both to be mildly effective. I also found that giving my son weak chamomile tea (cooled down first, of course) just before he goes to bed for the night to be just as effective (and a lot less expensive). To be honest, as any parent who is in the throes of caring for a colicky newborn baby knows — even a little relief is appreciated.

    Gripe water originated as a remedy for colicky babies in England in the mid-1800s. Pharmacist William Woodward adapted it from a remedy to treat “fen fever” — a fever that plagued many babies and resembled malaria in its symptoms. Woodward had discovered that the remedy also worked to effectively relieve gassy babies — and so gripe water was born. The original Woodward’s Gripe Water featured a baby Hercules in his cradle wrestling with two snakes, a fitting image since a colicky baby may appear to be fighting off snakes, and features the same emblem today (check it out at right).
