Has anyone ever made their own Gripe water, or Tummy Tea for babies? I just started making some for Philip and it is great! There are so many recipes out there, I was curious if anyone had tried to make there own, what worked for you? How often did you give it, and how much?
I've been making mine with Chamomile, dill seeds, and fennel seeds. Then a little corn syrup to sweeten it up. He seems to like it alright, and pretty quickly after drinking a bit (about 10-15ml per dosage) he's finally smiling again. I have to say, I'm a true believer in this 'tea'. I don't know what we'd do without it.

Interesting idea, I never thought about making my own. I'm going to have to look into a few recipes now.
