DIY 'Gripe' water (XP)

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. Smile

Marie,

I have never tried that. Really sounds interesting. How often do you give it to your little one?

On a side note -- every time I see your signature it makes me grin! Your boys are all adorable!

Thank you. Smile A sure have a wild crew of boys. Heh heh.

So far I've given it 2-3x a day. Always before bedtime! Lol. I've read you can give it 6x a day if needed.
