For the symptomatic relief of distress associated with wind and gripe in infants up to one year old.
Gripe is caused by muscle spasms and excess acid created when air bubbles form in baby's tummy. When the air bubbles get trapped in a baby's stomach the stomach thinks it is full of food, so acids are produced which would normally break down the food particles. These acids are not needed and can cause irritation. At the same time, because the stomach is full of air bubbles, its muscles are unable to relax causing cramps and spasms. Woodward's gripe water contains oil of dill herb and sodium bicarbonate and brings rapid relief of wind and gripe.
