When I was a baby, mum gave me gripe water. The Chinese call it Fat Baby water.
When I became a young mum, my daughter cried non stop, I was desperate, and sent my husband to the pharmacy to buy the Fat Baby water. I held my daughter, the dad gave her a spoon. It was like magic, she drank it, and it was like a switch turning the crying off.
Some one told me that gripe water has alcohol. These ones say it is alcohol free. It is dill seed oil. I also saw other brands. The yellow packaging is Infacol wind drops.
