Important to mothers
I’ve been wondering for a while what Gripe Water is because I suddenly remember I used to like it when I was a child. (And there is nothing wrong in skimming ideas from other blogs to write something for your own).
Apparently, Gripe Water is given to colicky babies. I must have been very colicky then, because I think I took the stuff almost daily. Tastes real nice too. Might go get a bottle.
In India, Woodward’s Celebrated Gripe Water used to be (though I dunno about now) marketed with a slight adaptation. Woodward’s logo depicts Hercules strangling a snake, but the promotional posters in India show a fat little baby Lord Krishna subjugating quite a fierce looking serpent.
There are grateful Hindu cows in the background
Other than that, there really isn’t much to talk about. I’d tell you how much fun I had at brunch this morning with Hamsup’s Owner if I could. But I can’t.
