My daughter was a fractious child when she was a very young baby, and the health visitor prescribed 'gripe water' (the HV was Italian and called it grippie water)
- as a result the child developed a taste for alcohol which lasted into adulthood.The original Woodward's Gripe Water contained 3.6% alcohol, dill oil, sodium bicarbonate, sugar, and water.
Prior to alcohol's removal from the recipe, Woodward's maximum recommended dose of gripe water contained an alcohol content equivalent to five tots of whiskey for an 80kg adult.
