Gripe

So I was just reading through random lists of what to do before baby comes...and what you have to have.  Granted, I think I know most of the stuff, but I'm bored with nothing else I can really do.  So I'm reading things to get me (even more!) excited about our little baby-on-the-way.

Wow.  My enter key just stopped working.  It's working again, obviously, because I've moved on to another paragraph.  Anyway.

(It worked this time.)  One of the things I should have on hand is gripe water.  I've heard this term before, but never really knew what it was, or what it was used for.  This article says it's used to calm babies with colic.  Okay, cool.  It also says it contains alcohol.  What?!  Isn't that a little...strange?  That people give this to newborns with alcohol in it? 

Maybe they don't all contain alcohol.  Who knows.  Does anybody use this?  Does it work?  Does the baby wake up with a hang over???
