    Hello ladies :hugs:

    Does anyone know why babies cant have gripe water before 4 weeks ?

    I have some in the cupboard ready for friday lol. Also my DD was born 3 weeks early at 37+2 weeks. As 37 weeks is classed as term is it right that i can give it to her at 4 weeks or do i have to adjust the age and give it to her 4 weeks after her due date ? Sorry if this is a very silly question. I have never had an early baby before :blush:
