Is Organic Gripe Water safe for my baby?
Absolutely. Organic Gripe Water is completely safe. Our products are made in certified facilities using organic ingredients whenever possible. In our Organic Gripe Water, we use an age-old herbal formula that’s been around for hundreds of years. Your grandma’s grandmother probably used it too!
When should I give my baby Organic Gripe Water?
All babies are different, so there’s no hard or fast rule as to when you should give your baby Organic Gripe Water. Some babies need Organic Gripe Water before a feeding to avoid gas that could cut a feeding short. Others might need it about 30 minutes after a feeding to avoid spitting it up. You can give your baby Organic Gripe Water as needed, so trying different times will help you find the best results for your baby. Just make sure you don’t give your baby Organic Gripe Water more than 6 times in a 24-hour period.
How quickly does Organic Gripe Water work?
Our Organic Gripe Water can start working immediately, but could take up to 20 minutes to kick in. It varies from fussy baby to fussy baby.
Can Organic Gripe Water make my baby sleepy?
Occasional stomach upsets, colic, gas and all that crying can be draining, so it’s not uncommon for your baby to become sleepy after a dose of Organic Gripe Water.
Is Organic Gripe Water FDA approved?
Since Organic Gripe Water falls under the category of dietary supplements, it doesn’t require FDA approval. We are always compliant with every FDA regulation for dietary supplements. Your baby’s safety is our top priority!
How do I give it to my baby, and how often should I give it to them?
Before using Organic Gripe Water, give the bottle a good shake. Fill the syringe provided with the recommended dose and then slowly administer toward your baby’s inner cheek. Organic Gripe Water can also be mixed in a bottle with breast milk or formula.
Be sure to refrigerate your bottle after opening and wash and dry the syringe thoroughly after each use.
For fussy and colicky babies, go ahead and use it up to 6 times in a 24-hour period as needed.
What is “sodium bicarbonate” and is it safe for my baby?
Sodium bicarbonate is an ingredient that is well known to help reduce stomach acid, and it’s completely safe for your baby.* We use a small amount in our herbal blend to help your baby’s tummy feel better, and to balance and maintain the pH of our product.* Sodium bicarbonate is on the GRAS list of ingredients, also know as ingredients that are generally recognized as safe by the FDA, and the amount we use is far below the recommended daily allowance for infants.
Does Organic Gripe Water need to be refrigerated?
Yes. We are proud to say our product requires refrigeration because it is free from preservatives — Just the way nature designed and the way it should be for your little one! Consider it similar to juice or milk that need to stay refrigerated to ensure they don’t spoil. We think it’s worth it to keep your little ones away from unnecessary ingredients.
Should I throw away my bottle if I opened it and forgot to put it in the refrigerator?
If your Organic Gripe Water has been left unrefrigerated for more than a couple of hours, or left in high heat, then we highly recommend you toss it. Think of Organic Gripe Water like milk or juice: if you left it out for the same amount of time, would you toss it? If the answer is yes, then the same applies to your Organic Gripe Water.
How long can I keep my bottle of Organic Gripe Water?
Check the date on the bottle to know how long to keep an unopened bottle. An opened bottle should be used or discarded within 4 weeks.
Help! I think there’s mold in my Organic Gripe Water!
Mold?! Ugh, now that’s something to gripe about. No one wants mold in their Organic Gripe Water. But just like your favorite organic strawberries or piece of bread, it is possible to find mold because our products are made without the use of preservatives. Preservatives are used to make products last longer but we aren’t convinced that’s a good thing. Without chemicals, nature can take over, which is a possibility we at Wellements are willing to face, after all, nature is our business.
We value your trust and stand behind the safety of our products 100%. If you experience an issue, please contact us at 1-800-255-2690 and we’ll work with you to fix it.
What makes Wellements Organic Gripe Water different from other gripe waters?
We’re proud to be the only organic, preservative-free and Non GMO Project Verified gripe water in the market. That means we’ve gone the extra mile to make sure there is nothing but pure, clean goodness in our product. Why buy another brand with unnecessary preservatives when you don’t have to? While this does mean you have to keep your Organic Gripe Water refrigerated it also means you don’t have to worry about the things you’re putting in your baby’s body.
