Homemade Colic-Aid

T’s been suffering from a little colic off late. So I decided to put together a gripe water recipe to soothe his little troubled tum. Most mums are aware that Ajwain (carom seeds) is an old ‘Naani ka Nuskha’ for easing colic. Here’s a combination of a few other ingredients that have seemed to help.

  • Dil (shepu, savaa)
  • Ajwain (carom seeds)
  • Saunf (fennel seeds)
  • Adrak (ginger)
  • A little bit of sugar (optional)

Put the ingredients together and bring to a boil. Let the mix cool. Strain and give spoonfuls (10ml) through the day. on some days I also mix a bit in his regular water that he has from the sippy cup.
