4 doctors agree
In brief: Doubt any harm
A variety of items have been offered to qwell fussy babys since the 1700's, most implying some sort of stomach upset as the cause.
A variety of gripe waters are available, some monitored by the fda and some not. Most appear to have harmless ingredients & in small amounts are probably fine. I have never recomended them.If i did it would be one monitored by the fda.

Dangerous if it has alcohol in it.
