What is Gripe Water?

Based on an original formula developed by English nannies during the middle of the 19th century, Gripe Water is a liquid herbal supplement that contains a combination of soothing and calming herbs used to treat babies suffering from colic and other issues of stomach discomfort.

Unfortunately many modern Gripe Water formulations contain excess sugar, unnecessary preservatives (such as benzoates, sorbates or parabens), artificial colouring, flavours and sweeteners, and even alcohol. As Gripe Water is often the first liquid a baby experiences beyond breast milk or formula, it is vitally important that it be free of impurities and unnecessary chemicals, and that it contain only safe, natural and time tested ingredients.

Created by Dr Murray Clarke, ChildLife® Organic Gripe Water combines the gentle effectiveness of ginger, fennel, dill and kiwifruit from New Zealand and provides your baby with natural, soothing relief from bloating and stomach discomfort often associated with colic, teething  and hiccups.

Organic Ginger – Helps relieve nausea, indigestion, bloating, and stomach cramps.
Organic Fennel – Used to relax a spasmodic colon and release trapped gas.
Organic Dill – Helps dispel flatulence, settle the stomach, and calm the digestive tract.
Organic Kiwifruit Extract – Sourced from right here in New Zealand, kiwifruit extract helps maintain bowel regularity, as well as the natural ecology of “good” bacteria in your child’s digestive tract.

ChildLife® uses only the highest quality ingredients. ​This formula is gluten-free, casein-free and alcohol-free. It contains no milk, eggs, wheat, yeast, peanuts, tree nuts, fish or shellfish. No artificial colourings, flavourings or sweeteners.
Proprietary Blend: Organic Ginger Root, Organic Dill Essential Oil, Organic Kiwifruit Extract, Organic Fennel Seed Essential Oil
Other Ingredients: Organic Vegetable Glycerin, Purified Water.
Suggested Dosage
For infants from birth – 6 months: 2 ml as needed
6 months and older:  2 – 4 ml as needed

    Been using it for over 6 days now and am glad my bubba takes it well. She cries less now in the evening and not pulling her legs up anymore after being fed. (She used to alot).. She is also teething at the moment and will see if this will help with easing her teething pain too. It would be lovely if it could help ease her pain..oh and I like it how it’s not very sweet too. Just great to have at home.

    The gripe water arrived just as we were headed out the door for a weekend away for a family wedding, so I took it with us and I’m so glad I did. I think the change in routines and the business of things made our 10 week old feed differently and take in a little more gas. She is both breastfed and formula fed and seemed uncomfortable after each meal with a lot of bubbles in her tummy. The Child Life Gripe Water smells quite nice, and not as sweet as other children’s medications. It was fairly easy to administer, although I did need to refill the dropper 4 times to get her the correct amount. My daughter didn’t mind the taste, and seemed to settle down a few minutes after each administration (helpful just before the wedding). It’s a great product to have on hand. I also like that it’s in a glass bottle, and therefore recyclable.

    Ive been using the organic gripe water for couple of days. Its easy to use it has a dropper measurement right there as a lid, great for in the dark. My baby is 5 weeks old and suffers from trapped wind, hiccups, bloating and stomach pains. I was using normal gripe water. This product is much better he even likes to swallow it 🙂 its been great for trapped wind and helps with his bloating and pains. It does this by helping wind move through his intestines and then bowel. I highly recommend this product 😀

    Found the organic gripe water amazing! My boy stopped crying the minute I gave him the gripe water and his whole little body relaxed! I also feel much better giving my boy an organic natural product, thank you for the opoortunity to try your awesome product!

  5. Chanae 14/04/2018 at 5:05 am

    Yes please I have a 3 week old baby that could really do with trying organic gripe water. He’s got bad gas and been really struggling with geting any sleep. Plz help me

  6. teresahoskins 11/04/2018 at 7:47 pm

    Yes please! The idea of a natural, organic product for my 13 week old bub

  7. lisarusden 11/04/2018 at 6:42 pm

    We would love to try this for our son who is 9 weeks old! He has had issues with tummy pain, hiccups and wind since he was about 2 weeks old!
    Poor little guy! We have tried everything but nothing seems to be helping him 🙁 We look like a walking chemist shop in our place with all the colic/wind products!!!
    Love that it is organic too! 🙂

  8. Mutianga 11/04/2018 at 3:26 pm

    Would love to try this with my 3 month baby. Daily he is constantly getting rhe hiccups and takes a while for him to bring up his wind. This could be helpful

    Hi , I would love to try organic gripe water for my 10 months old summer .
    My baby is on formula since she was 2 months old, I have to tell other mothers as well that gripe water is very important and helpful for babies. I remember taking my daughter to doctor when she cried day to night and doctor said it’s normal for babies, but luckily my told me to give her gripe water , which worked as a magic and helped baby to calm down in few minutes. Please give to your babies gripe water as per the instructions on the bottle and it really helps.

  10. Joanne 05/04/2018 at 1:09 pm

    My son is 5 months old and gets the hiccups and is a bit windy on a daily basis. He has also started teething. I have been taking fennel tablets for bf support, which has helped a little with his gas (and mine ha ha) so I would love to try this product to see if it will help him!!

  11. k1234 04/04/2018 at 1:12 pm

    I would love to try this with my 7 month old, who is often gassy and has tummy discomfort

  12. Lesley Keenab 29/03/2018 at 4:00 pm

    I would love yo try this product. In fact I wish I would have found it the first time around… you probably get told that a lot though 😉

  13. Ashleigh 29/03/2018 at 1:49 pm

    Would love to try this for my 8 month old, she is struggling to settle to sleep and I often get her up again and it’s usually trapped wind keeping her awake and waking her! Would also be great to help her bowels get going

  14. Sexcpinkplayboy 28/03/2018 at 7:59 pm

    I would love to try this for my 11 month old boy we have always had many issues with tummy upsets diareah and wind, would love to try this to see how it can help my son

  15. Steph 28/03/2018 at 9:46 am

    My daughter is 5 weeks old. She gets hiccups a lot and they seem to make her really uncomfortable. I’d love to see if this product could relieve her.

  16. MarleyKade 27/03/2018 at 7:48 pm

    I would like to be part of this trial as my 10 week old son has a really hard time with wind and a sore tummy, we are using Colic Calm but it is so expensive it would be great to see if this works.

  17. KatvT 27/03/2018 at 6:18 pm

    My baby has just turned 10 months old. I would love to try this product out. I like to try and only use natural products unless really necessary. This product looks great!

  18. kirsty86 27/03/2018 at 4:37 pm

    yes please would love to try this for mr 5 weeks he has multiple episodes of hiccups a day sometimes lasting 30 mins or more hate seeing my baby so uncomfortable

  19. nzalice 27/03/2018 at 4:07 pm

    We would love to give this product a try, our 5 week old struggles with my overactive letdown, causing her to get constant hiccups, gas and tummy bloat.
    Any product that could help reduce these symptoms would be a godsend & help our little girl sleep better.

  20. Kayeew 27/03/2018 at 2:09 pm

    Would love to give this a try on my second baby who is 10 weeks old. She cries every evening around the same time for no reason.. We guess it could be colic and I heard gripe water might help with her colic.. But the ones in the supermarkets are always full of unnecessary chemicals. We tried something else to help with her colic but never worked.. It’s indeed very stressful for us because I have an older toddler at home too and my baby’s crying always wakes my older one up 🙁
    So this natural gripe water would be really good on my newborn baby

  21. Seth Holten 27/03/2018 at 1:20 pm

    My little one has just turned 6 months old. She is super gassy and I struggle at nap time. More so at night. I have to hold her until she falls asleep because she takes ages to release her wind. I use regular gripe water on occasion but try to limit it as the ingredients aren’t the best. I’d love to try the organic brand being on one income Money is tight, we have tried almost all wind products so being able to try this and to see if it works before we purchase would be a God send as we cant afford to keep purchasing items we won’t use.

  22. chloepichay 27/03/2018 at 12:20 pm

    i noticed that my 2yo son recently have a tummy pain, i put on some oil. i hope this sample will work him.

  23. mumofsuperheroes 27/03/2018 at 12:20 pm

    My young daughter has suffered from tummy troubles since starting with solids and she is the worst teether in the world. I swear it’s all linked to her tum. I’d be so appreciative if we could give this a go!

  24. Carla Thorpe 27/03/2018 at 12:11 pm

    Please! Mr 3wrrks has terrible wind pain, wakes himself when he farts. Very spilly. Would love to try this please!

  25. LAlexander 27/03/2018 at 12:01 pm

    Would love to try this for my boy who’s coming up 3 months old. He struggles with an upset tummy that wakes him up. I have been reluctant to give any of the other products on the market with nasty ingredients so this sounds perfect!

  26. Madsid123_ 27/03/2018 at 11:45 am

    My 19 months old boy still cries in night due to stomach cramps and wind. I am giving him one over the counter medicine which does not seems to help much until I give him doses 2-3 times during sleep. I would like to be considered to try out ChildLife Organic Gripe Water made with organic ingredients. I would like to see if it works any better than the current one. Thanks.

  27. RachTee 27/03/2018 at 11:30 am

    11 Weeks old 🙂

  28. Jodz33 27/03/2018 at 11:18 am

    I still have to give my 18 month old gripe water every night after dinner! Would be nice to try something a bit more natural sounding!

  29. courtneyevans91 27/03/2018 at 11:14 am

    My baby is due this week so I would love the opportunity to try this organic product with her especially if it is the first thing she tries apart from breast milk

  30. Hannah Rutland 26/03/2018 at 4:55 pm

    My son is nearly 6 months old. He has always had gas and bowel movement issues. This would be great to try to help ease his regularly occurring discomfort.
