I was recently asked where to buy gripe water in Vancouver - :) what did you think I was writing about this time!
Most drug stores/pharmacies should have it in the baby section. I’m pretty sure all have no alcohol now but check just in case. Some have different flavours (though not stated on the bottle), e.g., a licorice or dill flavour (!)
I've been doing some searching online for "gripe water" and I'm surprised that what I'm finding for the most part are sites that sell it but not a whole lot of information on it! Even my trusted Dr. Sears has nothing on the topic. Maybe this is a sign?
Other remedies for colicy (don't like the term!) babies are infant massage and wearing your baby. I found the latter out when my son was 4 months old and as soon as I put him in a sling he was asleep in 2 minutes! Grrr!
If anyone else has any hints to share, please do so!
