No Gripes With Gripe

This venerable love potion was a must-have for every infant.  They called it Gripe Water.  Well we had no gripes with it, as it did seem to do wonders for those tired-out mums who were driven berserk by babies wailing non-stop for no reason.

It supposedly removed the “wind” from the babies’ insides – colic – and soothed them into a nice sleep.  In later years, it was banned because it was found to have alcoholic content; it seems that a new formula has been developed.  I do not know if the latter-day concoction is just as effective.  Haven’t had a chance to come to grips with it.  LOLX.

Maybe worn-out mums can also try this – helps them to sleep better.
