Parents are Getting Curious to Know and Use Gripe Water for Babies




Gripe Water is a traditional supplement and treatment of many problems in babies mainly colic, indigestion, teething pain, flatulence, and hiccup. It is a thin liquid which mothers have been giving their babies since a long time ago. In earlier times, its ingredients were water, dill oil, sodium bicarbonate, sugar and a small amount of alcohol. Currently, this baby product is in more refined form when alcohol as an ingredient was objected by doctors and parents.

New parents are keen to know what is gripe water, because some people around them suggest them to give gripe water to their baby, while some found no benefits of this baby product.Some studies have shown that gripe water with alcohol ingredient is unsafe for babies and gripe water with sodium bicarbonate is safer and effective to cure acidity in babies.

According to the doctors, the continuous consumption of gripe water by the baby should be avoided because excess consumption of sodium bicarbonate can cause milk-alkali syndrome. It is a condition where the amount of calcium and alkali in the blood get increased. Babies younger than six months should be avoided to give more gripe water, since it can affect their kidney in the future.

Doctors advise parents to give gripe water only when the babies start showing symptoms of colic, indigestion, teething pain and flatulence. And they must avoid giving gripe water in the empty stomach because baby’s stomach lining is very soft and could be affected by the alkaline sodium bicarbonate. Breastfeeding and soft tummy massage can avoid the use of gripe water.

Tips for Working out during Periods by Harman Sidhu

  1. Always Listen to Your Body: If you are not feeling good or well, there is absolutely no need to work out. Its absolutely fine to take a 3 or 4-day break and let your body recover.
  2. Your hard work is not undone: If you decide to take a break, your previous hard work is not undone during these 4 or 5 days.
  3. Train your legs Before your Periods: Legs are the hardest to train during your Periods. So if you are regular with your periods and know when they are going to come, its always a good idea to train your legs the preceding week. So that you don’t have to worry about training them during your periods.
  4. Training Legs During Period can make your flow heavier: If you decide to train your legs during your periods, make sure you do it on the last day.
