  • Is Gripe Water Safe For Newborns: Generally it is used to relieve colic. If the newborn is crying for long but is otherwise healthy, the baby is colicky. The symptoms of colic develop after 3 weeks of birth. It happens because the digestive system is not fully developed and after feeding gas is formed. Though gripe water has all natural and herbal ingredients, like ginger, fennel, peppermint, cinnamon, cardamom, chamomile etc, it’s healthy for babies. It also helps in relieving gas.
