Baby Must-Haves for Upset Stomach, Colic, and Sore Gums

By Helen Malkin

Getting through the day with a fussy baby can be exhausting, and it’s even more challenging when fussiness extends throughout the night. There are a number of reasons that can cause a baby to be fussy so it’s important for new parents to know what the issues might be and how to best solve for them. The most common issues are gas, constipation, colic, or sore gums. You can be prepared with a new baby toolkit that includes the following time-tested remedies for those moments when baby (and not to mention yourself!) is in need of some relief.


Gripe Water and Gripe Water Gel

Gripe water is an herbal supplement that has been used for generations to ease infant’s symptoms of gas, colic, hiccups, and fussiness. We like Mommy’s Bliss Gripe Water Original, as it is the number one selling supplement for infant gas & colic relief and because the brand focuses on quality ingredients including fennel seed and ginger root you an start to use this as early as 2 weeks old. To ease the nausea and discomfort caused by stomach gas and other colic symptoms, gripe water is a great first step in trying to sooth your baby’s tummy troubles. You may also try Mommy’s Bliss Gripe Water Night Time, which is made with a bedtime blend of chamomile, lemon balm, and passion flower. These drops are administered directly or in an empty bottle when your baby is in need of digestive and colic relief.


Additionally, Mommy’s Bliss has just added a new, easy-to-administer gel format of both their legendary Original Gripe Water and Night Time version. Gripe Water Original Gel and Gripe Water Night Time Gel are created with the same herbal formulas found in the liquid versions but are even gentler for your new baby and you may find this format to be easier to administer. The gel formula is given in a small, pea-sized amount to your fingertip and applied to the inside of your baby’s cheek or pacifier which allows your baby to consume slowly.


Gas Relief Drops

There are times when you want—need!—the quickest possible solution to your baby’s gas and fussiness. Formulated with a baby-friendly dose of pediatrician-recommended simethicone, Mommy’s Bliss Gas Relief Drops break up gas bubbles gently and quickly to get your baby smiling again. This gentle formula works in minutes and has a sweet flavor that babies love, with no added sugars.


Baby Constipation Ease

Since your baby arrived, you’ve probably talked about poop more than you ever imagined but when your baby stops or has trouble pooping it can be uncomfortable resulting in increased fussiness. Mommy’s Bliss Baby Constipation Ease is a gentle herbal liquid made with organic ingredients including prune juice and non-chemical laxatives that safely ease your baby’s occasional constipation and provide healthy bowel movements.


Baby Probiotic Drops: Colic Support

Colic is the worst. There, we said it. Colic is characterized by crying in a baby that lasts at least 3 hours per day, 3 days per week, for at least 3 weeks. Usually, the crying begins at the same time each day, and has to do with indigestion. While the behavior can be a great stressor on babies and parents alike, you can try Probiotic Supplement Drops: Colic Relief. This liquid formula contains a proven blend of probiotic strains that are clinically studied to help reduce crying time in babies with colic. Comforting your little one from day one will be easier when you have this close by.


Baby Probiotic Drops: Everyday Digestive Health

Trust your gut in taking care of your baby’s gut! Care for your baby’s digestive health in advance by giving them Baby Probiotic Drops: Everyday Digestive Health made from Pure Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG, to help build your baby’s gut microbiome. After your baby is born, their digestive system begins to develop significantly within their first months, and probiotic supplement drops are safe to use from day one. One daily serving given by spoon, mixed into breast milk or formula, or applied to breast during feeding, can help reduce tummy discomfort, eliminate gas, and digestive troubles early on or along the way.


Baby Probiotic Drops: Everyday Digestive Health + Vitamin D

Boost your baby’s health further with Baby Probiotic Drops: Digestive Support + Vitamin D. This new baby must-have serves up the same probiotic formula found in Mommy’s Bliss Baby Probiotic Drops but has the addition of Vitamin D to promote healthy growth and bone development for babies – especially needed for breastfed babies. Its liquid formula is administered with a dropper and has no added sugar, no alcohol, no artificial flavors or colors, and free of the top 8 allergens.


Gum Massage Gel

If you’ve crossed off digestive issues from the possible list of causes for your baby’s fussiness, it may be sore gums. Before your baby can give us their toothy little smile, swollen and tender gums are a common occurrence when baby is in their first stages of developing their baby teeth. When your baby starts to experience fussiness due to tender gums, Mommy’s Bliss Gum Massage Gel is suited to help soothe your fussy baby with inflammation-easing organic ingredients. Apply a small pea-sized amount of gel to your favorite teether or your fingertip and gently massage to relieve your baby’s gums with the gel as needed.

Stocking up on these new baby must-haves will have you ready for those unexpected moments of your infant’s fussiness and discomfort.
