When Do I Give Gripe Water to My Baby?
Babies tend to suck in air while feeding. The air bubbles get trapped in the stomach and cause gas and stomach discomfort. Most babies get fussy right after feeding due to gulping too much air or swallowing the food too quickly. It is good practice to administer gripe water after 30 mins from the feeding to allow some time to empty the tummy. When given too soon after feeding, the baby may spit it out as their stomach is full. If the baby does not complete feeding due to gas, administer gripe water to the baby before feeding.
