Gripe water: Beano for babies?

Lots of babies get cranky and colicky in the evening. Our 6-week daughter is one of them. An otherwise incredibly easy and good baby so far,  Francie’s only struggle is crying for a couple hours in the evening. In hopes of turning that witching hour back into happy hour, I plunked down $14 for a bottle of gripe water on the advice of our pediatrician’s nurse practitioner.

Is it a homeopathic hoax? Or life-saver? One night in and she was quiet and content all evening. I am thinking life saver.

And Baby Bliss Gripe Water isn’t even an advertiser.
