What is Gripe Water?
Gripe Water is an old formula that has been used for over 100 years throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, India, and the Caribbean to remedy the discomforts of babies with colic, gas, teething and hiccups. Previously Gripe Water was being imported to the states but it did not gain approval because many of the formulas had alcohol in them. Bliss By Mom introduced all- natural, alcohol-free Baby's Bliss Gripe Water to the American market over 6 years ago.
What's in Gripe Water?
The active ingredients in Baby's Bliss Gripe Water are fennel, ginger, and sodium bicarbonate. All three have been known to be beneficial in easing nausea and pain due to baby stomach gas and other colic symptoms. Fennel and ginger are also effective for easing the discomforts of infant teething. Baby's Bliss Gripe Water does NOT contain any of the following: Gluten, Soy, Starch, Dairy products, Wheat, Yeast, Dill, Chamomile, Alcohol, Parabens, Artificial colors, Artificial flavors, Binders, Sucrose (table sugar), Fillers, Petroleum-based products.
Why does Gripe Water contain Sodium Bicarbonate?
There are two main reasons why we include Sodium Bicarbonate in Baby's Bliss Gripe Water. First, the Sodium Bicarbonate acts to balance and maintain the Ph of the Gripe Water. Second, the Sodium Bicarbonate acts in conjunction with the Ginger and Fennel to facilitate and aid digestion. Its properties to reduce gastric irritations are well known by Doctors and Pharmacists.
Is the Sodium Bicarbonate safe to give my baby?
The Sodium Bicarbonate used in the Gripe Water was specifically formulated for infants and babies and the amount contained is minimal (14 mg or less than 1% of the daily recommended amount for Infants). All ingredients in the Baby's Bliss Gripe Water are listed on the FDA's "Generally Recognized As Safe" (GRAS) list. Sodium Bicarbonate is also included in the GRAS list as well as the FDA Inactive Ingredients Guide. Sodium Bicarbonate's properties to reduce gastric irritations are well known by Doctors and Pharmacists.
Isn't Fructose sugar?
Fructose is not sugar. Fructose is a food based sweetener that is appropriate for small children and metabolized slowly. Sugar is truly sucrose and therefore Baby's Bliss Gripe Water is sugar free.
Is Baby's Bliss Gripe Water FDA approved?
Baby's Bliss Gripe Water is not regulated by the FDA as it is not considered a "medicine", but a nutritional supplement rather. The product is however manufactured in an FDA approved lab in Washington State.
Is Baby's Bliss Gripe Water safe?
Our product is manufactured by an FDA approved laboratory which follows strict manufacturing standards, guidelines, and procedures for quality and safety. All the ingredients used are listed on the FDA's "Generally Recognized As Safe" (GRAS) list. The ingredients are carefully selected and must meet our quality assurance requirements prior to their use. After the product has been manufactured it is held until additional analytical and microbiology tests have been conducted to assure the safety of the product. Only when a "Certificate of Analysis" has been issued, the product is then released for sale. Our product is also protected by a safety seal.
Can my baby be allergic to the ingredients?
Like any foods that are introduced for the first time to a baby there may be an allergic reaction such as hives, vomiting, diarrhea, irritability. If there is a history of food allergies in either parent then you may want to give half the dose.
When should I give it?
Baby's Bliss Gripe Water is given as needed, and may be given no more than once every 4 hours in a 24-hour period. NEVER exceed dosage and keep out of the reach of children.
Should I give it as a preventative measure or just when needed?
It is only necessary to give it as needed when you recognize that your baby is starting to become uncomfortable as it generally works quickly.
How does it help with teething?
Babies cry a lot when teething take in more air which makes them gassy. Baby's Bliss can often relieve them from the gas discomfort making them cry.
How do I give it?
Baby's Bliss Gripe Water may be administered orally by a dropper or directly in a bottle, prior, during, or after feedings. Please keep in mind that the baby must consume all of the formula in order to receive the full dose. Most babies will need it after feedings when they get gassy from eating too fast or gulping in air while feeding. It is a good idea to wait thirty minutes after a feeding to administer Gripe Water as it will help the food digest. If given too soon, the baby may vomit because he is too full or the ingredients don't mix well with the stomach contents. If a baby is not able to complete a feeding due to gas he or she may need it prior to the feeding. You will know what works best for your baby through giving it at different times.
The dosages are as follows:
|2 weeks - 1 month of age
||1/2 tsp. (2.5 ml)
||1 tsp. (5 ml)
|Children 6 months and older
||2 tsp. (10 ml)
||2 Tbsp. (30 ml)
Adults can use Baby's Bliss Gripe Water for gas, stomach upsets, and hiccups as well.
Can I give half the dose and more often?
It is recommended that you follow the instructions on the bottle. You may need to give it more often as you are only giving half the dose and therefore not getting the results your baby needs.
Why can't we give it more than 6 times in 24 hours?
This is our recommendation as with any product that contains sodium bicarbonate it is not safe to give more than the recommended dose, especially for babies.
How long will it take before my baby feels better?
Baby's Bliss has been known to work in 5-20 minutes - no kidding!
Can I give it with mylicon drops or other drugs?
By combining Baby's Bliss with other products it is difficult to determine which one is providing relief for your baby. I suggest giving Baby's Bliss on its own to see what the results are. This way if your baby gets relief, then you can discontinue other medications. You may want to consult your pediatrician first as some babies need to remain on Zantac and do fairly well with both but first try Baby's Bliss on its own to determine the results.
Will it work for my baby?
In a recent survey 85% of parents said they would recommend Baby's Bliss Gripe Water. You may want to check our feedback page on our website for more information from our customers. However, there are cases when the product didn't work for a baby and that may be because the baby was allergic to the ingredients, was uncomfortable for other reasons or the liquid was not administered as recommended.
Will my baby's bowel movements be easier to pass?
Some reports indicate that some babies have had less trouble with their bowel movements and were not as constipated as previously.
How long does it last?
Baby's Bliss Gripe Water has a 2-year shelf life when stored at room temperature. We recommend discarding it six weeks after opening it due to reduced potency and an increase in the potential for bacteria.
Does it need to be refrigerated?
No. Baby's Bliss Gripe Water contains natural preservatives making refrigeration unnecessary.
Is there any reason I shouldn't give it to my baby?
The product should not be given to babies under 7 pounds as small baby may react to ingredients differently. Neither should it be given if there is a history of food allergies in the family. Do not administer the product if your baby experiences increased discomfort or changes that you are not familiar with after taking Baby's Bliss Gripe Water i.e. baby becomes more irritable after taking a dose, or breaks out in hives or a rash. Contact your doctor if the baby experiences any of these things. Baby's Bliss Gripe Water should not be given if there is a history of kidney failure, heart disease or renal problems, as the product contains sodium bicarbonate. The amount of sodium bicarbonate is small and most likely will be harmless, but you must check with your doctor if either of the latter conditions exists.
