When my son was crying without stopping. I went to the nearest pharmacy who told me to use this as a try. Gave some to him, cries go on for another 15 min and stop. It s a good alternative to infant friend but not as effective i think. Always great to have something under the hand for colics.
Helpful for baby wind !
When little one was younger we used infacol with every feed from about a month old till she was 5 months old . She was a very windy and unsettle baby and this really helped. Once she was a bit older I was able to slowly removed it from her feeds, we never had an issue with the product at all.
Helps my baby
This has been affective in helping my daughter release wind and gases. I prefer to give this on its own rather than in her bottle in case she doesn’t finish it.
Having said that I’m going to try Infants friend next to see if that helps also with her colic symptoms.
Overall Good and worth a try.
Our Baby was only mildly suffering for a few weeks and we saw around a 50% improvement.
I have no experience with a baby with more than mild symptoms.
I'd suggest to give it a go and it may well work but remember to always ask a professional:)
Good luck parents at this exhausting/beautiful time in your lives.
Helps baby burp!
We are using this in conjunction with Novalac formula & Dr Brown's bottles and bubs is burping really well at each feed.
We use it every feed (bubs is currently 5 weeks) and will continue to do so until he gets the hang of things. Find it most effective by giving it directly to bubs about 5min before a feed.
Purchased from Woolies.
I've been using this for my baby since she was 2 weeks old. She had alot of trouble with wind and since putting the recommended dose into every bottle she's been so much better. I really recommend it. I got mine from coles supermarket. I hope that they always stock it
Good for new born
Really very useful when my new baby was 2 months old and crying lot.GP suggested and we tried give her surprisingly superb result with in minutes .Really very good and i prefer for new born if they have any stomach pain and they cry lot try with doctor's recommendation. Specially new born and breastfeed baby feel happy after drop.
Great for Colic but not for reflux.
Infacol worked really great for my 1st and 2nd kids who had bad colic. For my 3rd who had server reflux & colic was a no go. It made him projectile after big burps.
So i wouldn't recommend if your baby has reflux.
Other then that great for colic babies.
Helps with wind
Baby struggles with wind but has been able to get it up much easier since we switched to Infacol from another brand of wind drops. It could be a timing coincidence with the change, but it really seems to help -partner can tell when I have forgotten to give them.
Our baby was incredibly windy all the time. He wouldn't sleep during a day almost at all, although slept well at night. When we started using infacol (out of pure desperation) day naps have gotten longer, and he falls asleep really easy now, and generally seems more settled and happy.
Don't need too much of it, only 0.2 ml before each feed
You might need to use it in conjunction with other things like colic massage etc.
Not always needed
my granddaughter is given =it to her by her mother and its not something that she needs as she doesnt have colic or problems with bringing up her wind or any pains in her tummy and poos regulary, this happens when have her as i dont give the wind drops to her, when she does have it she vomits alot, i have told her mother not to give it to her but she continues to do so as well as baby nurofen, i am now getting very concerned on the damaged that contant use and vomiting can cause her down the track, i do believe wind drops are a nessecity for ch...ildren who need it but worry about those who dont but just a mother who doesnt want to take the time and care to help her naturely does anyone have any idea on what i should do xxx Good when needed Not good when not needed
Fantastic, they worked for us to keep our daughters wind pains to a minimum. They were easy to administer and worked straight away. We are more than happy with this product.
I used these drops at most feeds with mu daughter as the medication she was on for reflux gave her terrible wind. They were easy to administer with the included dropper. Having to insert the dropper into the top, turn the bottle upside down and then pull the medicine in to the dropper ensured that no air got in to the dose. My daughter never screwed up her face to these drops, so I assume they taste ok too.
We have not had a problem with these drops so far.
When bub was little she suffered from terrible colic. Some days she would burb well, some days not at all. As you didn't know in advance which it would be, it was hard to know if we should give her some of this beforehand. Most times we did, just to be safe. Sometimes though, this would make the burbs so big in her belly that she didn't want to burb as it hurt too much. Good product though, easy to use as you only have to give a small amount. Seems to work well and didn't smell awful.
Good product - easy to use, smells nice and mustn't taste too bad. Inexpensive and seems to work ok.
Has to be given before food.
I would definitely recommend this product, my Son was suffering from some wind issues in the first few months of his life, I purchased this product hoping that it would help relieve him of some of the pain as he would scream each night and I definitely saw a difference after using the product.
This product was inexpensive, easy to get a hold of and seemed to help with my Son as he was having some wind issues in the first few months of his life.
Nothing I came across, you cant use the product on infants under 1 month old, so you have to wait out those first few weeks before getting this product to aid in any kind of relief.
