I gave Gripe Water to my son when he was 6 weeks old. I adopted my son, and he was born addicted to drugs. He had all kinds of stomach problems. I tried Mylicon, and he cried more. When I gave him the Gripe Water, within 5-10 minutes he stopped crying. He had colic that started at about 8 weeks, but I gave him Gripe Water at night. He was always fine after getting Gripe Water. Before we discovered Gripe Water, he would cry almost the whole time he was awake. After we dicovered Gripe Water, he would cry a few times a day. I have told all my friends, and family about Gripe Water. Some of my friends have now tried Gripe Water with their babies, and all had the same results that I have had. For us Gripe Water was the cure for a baby who had a rough beginning, and needed something soothing. I hope this helps.
