gripe water is safe. we were given gripe water by our parents. plus I m an ayurvedic doctor and can say it's safe. I m giving multivitamin and gripe water to my 2 mth old son. My husband is MBBS and working with peaditrician since 5 yrs and multivitamin is safe. If you are taking it and iron and calcium then don't give to baby.

For food sorry please don't start anything other than milk right now. it may be formula milk or skimmed buffalo milk. To wake him during day : Don't feed him immediately as soon as he starts crying. its tough thing to do but try. after around 3 minutes give him his dose let's say gripe water but drop by drop. next time when he gets up let's say multivitamin drops next time calcium drops so multivitamin is given twice daily and gripe water 3 times. when he cries make noise with his toys. they should be colorful and make loud noise. kids are attracted towards color and noise. these things at initial stage may make them irritated but gradually sets there routine. irritated here is they will sleep for like 10 min and with slight sound will wake up again.

Hello Priyanka Badagavi if you are only breastfeeding then make sure his tummy is full. if not then start either formula milk or skimmed buffalo milk. Put off the lights entirely when you wanna sleep. A single beam of light attracts these little ones. when he wakes up even then don't turn on lights and avoid reacting. if he cries then react else avoid. This is how my elder son came in routine.
