~~About Woodwards Gripe Water and how it works
This medicine helps relieve the pain and discomfort associated with trapped wind in children who are under one year of age. It contains two main ingredients: sodium bicarbonate and dill seed oil. Sodium bicarbonate neutralises excess acid. Dill seed oil warms and relaxes your baby's tummy and breaks down trapped air bubbles which are passed out as wind.
This medicine is available as a liquid which is given by mouth. It can be given during or after each feed or up to six times in 24 hours.
Consult your doctor if your baby’s symptoms do not improve or if they get worse during treatment with this medicine.
