I’m not griping

20111213-194116.jpg

I would like to officially endorse gripe water. It’s something I never really knew about before baby. So for the preggers and soon-to-be preggers, add it to the list. It’s basically an all natural calming tonic touted for gas, tummy aches, colic and hiccups.
We use Mommy’s Bliss from Walgreens but there are several and Dupois in St. Martinville is supposed to be the best (it’s not called gripe water but colic medicine and you can order it online).
Thus far the best use I’ve had for it is in curing hiccups. I give him half a dose and it usually stops them immediately.
If you think hiccups are no biggie you haven’t dealt with a hungry inconsolable baby a three in the morning who wants to eat but can’t latch on due to incessant hiccups. Or worse (wince) hiccups while nursing … It ain’t pretty.

About Amanda Jean Elliott

I am a joyful believer in Jesus Christ, a mother, a sister, a writer, a maker of gluten free roux and a style editor. I love my son Wilder and the wild life that comes with a 4-year-old who has the energy of a pack of wolves. I also love naps (a lot). I love to cook and create my favorite dishes without gluten not because I'm trendy and anti-gluten so much as it makes me feel like I've been run over by a pack of wolves. I teach 5th and 6th grade girls Sunday School and have a classroom of the greatest girls I could imagine. Girls who often teach me more than I teach them. I believe these girls and many others are the spark to start a fire for The Lord the likes of which this world has never seen. I see more and more girls learning about more than just who God is ... but, learning about who God says THEY are. It is my prayer for every woman to know without doubt that we have a good good Father in heaven and whatever is not right on this earth, He will make right in this life or the next.
