> Hi I am returning your message Gripe water is used on colic babies,
or teething babies to calm there tummies. It contains sodium
Bicarbonate, terpeneless dill seed oil, water, sucrose ginger
tincture, nipasept sodium and flavor._And trust me I know about the
bland food thing but Skittles was refusing it and I wanted to reduce
the stress on him so I alternated with what I had I am back to just
chicken soup again. Some cases of ECE. depending on the strain it can
last 3-6 months with on and off symptoms this is why I am taking him
in tomorrow to either confirm it and deal with it for however long or
see that nothing else is also occurring (god forbid) thank you for
your response it is good to see others want to help :)
