    Does anyone use gripe water in the bottles? I use oval drops right now , but was wondering if I could use gripe water instead?

    Yup i use gripe water, i put it in just before feeding.
    I prepare all bottles in advance but add the gripe water after ive heated the bottle as i have to unscrew the top anway to heat..

    Hi, sorry for the ignorance, I'm new to the whole bottle feeding, do you use gripe water to avoid wind?
    Does everyone use it? How much go you put into each bottle? Thanks so much!

    Its used for wind but not everyone uses it and not everyone uses it for every feed.
    Under 1 month its not meant to be used
    1-6 months is 5ml per feed
    6-12 months is 10ml per feed

    Thank you ladies! Do you notice a difference with burps? with the gripe water? Ava is such a difficult burper at times. Also have any of you tried the oval drops (or other drops) before switching to gripe water? Did it make any difference?

    I tried infacol but she burped so violently with it she was sick..
    With gripe water i just sit her up and she burps, then rub her back for a few mins and she burps.. Where as before i was there a good 20 mins to get a burp. Xx

    Kaybea- IS there a maximum amount to add to feeds a day? sometimes Lo has 5 feeds a day others 6 I know with oval drops she can only have max 1.5 ml a day. So if she does have a 6 bottle its without the drops as shes at her max!

    You can give it upto 6 times in 24 hours..
    I only use it in every other feed though as LO's wind is getting much better and shes bringing it up easier now.
