In brief: It is a habit

Make sure you are giving the right product and check the ingredients.

In brief: It is ok

Gripe water has different herbs in it.
It is not addictive. Sounds like she is a little colicky and the gripe water helps reduce her belly discomfort. Hopefully you will only need the gripe water for a few weeks to a couple months as her digestive system matures and she can digest foods better.
