Hello, gripe water is used in based for abdominal colic, or discomfort, but there are no evidences that they could help baby, formulations containing alcohol or sugar are not good for babies health, and should not be used on regular basis. As long as your baby is gaining normal weight that is, it will be double of birth weight by 5 months and 3 times the birth weight by 1year, you need not worry, natural beast milk is always good for baby (over cows milk), following simple practices like making baby burp after baby takes any food or liquid (putting baby on shoulder tapping gently on back) will prevent vomiting, please avoid any digestive supplements like gripe water.
