    Apparently, Gripe water mixed with gin used to be quite a popular tipple :)

    It used to be 4.4% alcohol too!

    i think it smells horrible! lol


    while we on this subject tho, it says on the box that you can only give it with a feed, but if your baby is colicy in the evenings, do you think its ok to give it to tehm on its own?
    it really helps to bring wind up but its not always at feed times he has trouble with it

    I always give it to Rubie if she has hiccups (tip from Yvonne) and it stops them instantly. She's always been ok afterwards so I assume it's ok???

    Rubie loves it, she licks her lips when I give it to her lol

    I know!! How pants is that??!! I would never use a full bottle in 2 weeks, does anyone keep it longer? I have to throw mine out on Tuesday :(

    Never kept it - I guess the guideline is there for a good reason. I got a bottke when Damo just turned a month, used it once then he went onto loats of meds etc and i didnt use it afterwards! Wasted.

    Used to love it as a kid... used to nick it when mom wasn't looking. It's been taken off the market here though...
