What Does A Baby Have To Gripe About?
When air bubbles get trapped in a baby's stomach, the stomach thinks it is full of food, so acids that would normally break down the food particles are produced. These acids are not needed and can cause irritation.
At the same time, because the stomach is full of air bubbles, its muscles are unable to relax causing cramps and spasms.
How Can Woodward’s Help?
Woodward's Gripe Water’s contains oil of Dill herb and Sodium Bicarbonate and brings rapid relief of wind and gripe. Dill Seed Oil warms and relaxes the tummy, breaking down trapped air bubbles. Sodium Bicarbonate neutralises acid in the baby's tummy.
Feeding your baby one teaspoon of alcohol-free Woodward’s™ Gripe Water everyday can help prevent those stressful wind attacks before they happen.
The results are usually a resounding and satisfying burp! Woodward’s Gripe Water has been used by generations of mothers for over 150 years to soothe baby’s distress and stomach gripes and discomfort brought on by trapped wind in the stomach.
