Moms that use mylicon or gripe water

Do you use them both? At the same time? Before or after feeding?

Re: Moms that use mylicon or gripe water

We used gripe water all the time...mylicon never seemed to help DD. We gave it to her if she was very fussy or if she had the hiccups. It worked great!! We never used it at a specific time...only when she needed it.

Re: Moms that use mylicon or gripe water

I used to use gripe water with every bottle. I would add it to the formula. (I don't think it worked..but she was so colicky all of the time I was desperate). I also used mylicon whenever I felt she was gassy or just didn't want to burp.
both of those things are all natural and don't have anything in them that can hurt the baby..or so I was told by my ped.

Re: Moms that use mylicon or gripe water

I use mylicon in every bottle and can tell the difference if I don't use it. I have not used gripe water but heard it is great for hiccups. My doctor said it was okay to use the mylicon in every bottle.

We used mylicon with every feeding. We'd put it right into his bottle.
