Woodward’s Gripe Water, alcohol free and sugar free. Rapid relief of wind and gripe.
Gripe is caused by muscle spasms and excess acid created when air bubbles form in a baby’s tummy. Whenthe air bubbles get trapped in a baby’s stomach, the stomach think it is full of food, so acids are produced which would normally break down the food particles. 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.
Woodward’s Gripe Water contains oil of Dill herb and Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate and brings rapid relief of wind and gripe.
Dill Oil warms and relaxes the tummy, breaking down trapped air bubbles. Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate neutralises acid in the baby’s tummy. The results are usually a resounding burp.
Babies 1 month to 12 months.
