Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

Q. Does Hartley's Gripe Water contain Sodium Bicarbonate?

Q  How often can each dose be given?
If necessary, Hartley's Gripe Water can be given with (or after) each feed. For example - young baby feeds 3-4 hourly - therefore the medicine can be administered around  6 times in any 24 hour period. Usually, 3-4 doses in each 24 hours is sufficient.

Q Can I dilute the mixture?
Yes, you can dilute by placing into formula, water or juice and the like. This action will not reduce the effectiveness of the preparation. Mixing the preparation into formula or juice can assist in masking the taste or diluting the mixture making it more palatable to baby.

Q Can I mix the preparation with some sugar in the water?
Whilst we have been advised  that some parents have taken this action this is NOT recommended by Hartley's.
If taste is of concern best to mask the preparation in babies normal eating and refreshment regime, such as juice etc.

All Hartley's products have been approved for use by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration for use as directed.
