Dear Parentune, I am a mother of 7 mths old girl baby. I find your site so useful. My baby sleeps very late at night, around 1 am. Doesn't sleep for a good time in day too. Tried bathing in warm water before sleep too. Please suggest some remedies to make her sleep. She is under mother feed. Find very difficult. Totally exhausted. Best regards, NarmathaYuvaraj

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3356971/ This is an article written by a pediatrician himself (from one of premier medical institutes of India ) mentioning details about gripe water and associated side effects and why WHO spends billions telling every woman on this earth to exclusively breastfeed for first 6 months (GIVE NOTHING ELSE)and preferably till one year of life . I'm not here to justify any homeopathic or ayurveda formulas as I'm an allopathic doctor to be precise .

Hi aditi, I've answered this query before as well. Gripe water should be definitely avoided. Ask your pediatrician , he might advise SIMETHICONE drops (available by names like colicaid etc) with dosage based on age of your baby .
