Painful tummy? Fussy?

I swear by gripe water. In case you aren't familiar with it it is an English homeopathic remedy for babies with colic, hiccups, teething pain, upset stomach and or gas. The ingredients usually include fennel, chamomile, ginger and a little bicarbonate. On occasion I've been known to take some as well. Check out my Amazon store and you'll see it under Essentials -and buy it from there (no added cost to you and a few pennies in my tip jar).

Hmmm...in preparation for my (no doubt cranky) baby's arrival in July I'd like to stock up on this stuff. Is there anywhere you can get it in Italy?

Grant -I can't find it for sale here :-(
Kata-
In order to get it I ordered through Amazon -which luckily the post always assumes it is books.
I also found this cool store:

Also, with all the people sure to visit I would ask them to bring it (I've even found it in at the Dutch Chemists) Good Luck!
