    I was told by my Doctor not to give gripe water. It contains alcohol. When we give gripe water kids will sleep more time and their appearance will be fat. Moreover kids will be little dull and not active compared to those who have not used it.

    Sudha,

    I was advised not to give any liquid other than milk. So no gripe water !! Better they have get used to without giving unnecessary medicines or catalysts for digestions !!! JMO

    Lee,

    I just looked at the ingredients..I did not find "grapes"..The main ingredients are ginger and fennel seeds. Anyways, I will ask my doctor at LO's 6th month visit

    Not all gripe water contains alcohol...I think the ones "Made in Europe" have alcohol but the ones "Made in U.S.A" do not contain alcohol...I have no idea about "Made in India"...

    I use the one "Made in U.S.A"
