My baby has really bad gas. I have been rubbing her belly and evertying but nothing works. At the pharmacy*which was conviently sold out of gripe water* an old italian lady told me she use to boil anise seeds and feed the anise water to the baby to help with gas. I have googled this and aparently it works really well. The only problem is where do i get anise seeds? I only found the fresh thing in the grocery store. She hasn't been latching on right and is getting alot of air. any other tips are welcome!!!

My guess would be The Country Way. Give them a call. They have all kinds of loose herbs and stuff.

Try lying her on her back and massaging her tummy and moving her legs up to her tummy. Also lying her face down on your lap so her tummy has some pressure on it.

Gripe water is wonderful stuff! Ovol works well too - get somebody to deliver it to you so you can have peace, and baby can rest.

I saw anise seeds tonite at The Bulk Barn.

Metro might have gripe water.

They were over on the right hand wall towards the back with the herbs.

Another trick is if you hold your baby tummy to tummy with you the heat from your tummy helps pass their gas...
My first born had terrible pain and gas....and I never fed my children gripe water with a spoon like the instructions say i placed it on the their soother...
