Gripe water and gas drops


Can you give gripe water and gas drops together?

I would say no. I use only gripe water when LO needs a little more help with removing gas.

Have you tried only using one or the other? They are intended to be used on their own.

I purchased both because I couldn't decide which worked better (first time ) I"m currently using the gas drops and it seems to be working a little.. I figured if I haven't seen any real results by the end of next week I'd switch to the gripe water to see what happens.

We put gas drops in every bottle and have supplemented with gripe water occasionally. No harm done.

hungry, does your LO ever get constipated from the drops?

Sophia is constipated today and the only thing I can think of is it's because we put gas drops in all of her bottles.

Not yet - thank goodness. She has about 1 bm/day. Sometimes she'll go 48 hours...but that's only ever happened once or twice. I can't recall if she went 48 hrs after we 1st started using the drops, though. A lot of times I don't even put the full dose in her bottle. Just a drop or two - or we do see a big difference. She's a tooter, for sure (like her daddy.)

We use generic versions from our drugstores here.
