This is pretty could
My baby started having colics on his 2nd week of life, I did not want to give him actual medicine so I started with homeopathic colic calm, which helped him to evacuate but not immediately with the pain. I jumped to infacol when he turned 1 month old, but I am only giving it to him before the first night feed and the first morning feed, he hates it but it is helping a lot with the pain itself, unfortunately he takes a couple of hours to evacuate (poop), but he does. I am very happy that the pain goes away, as it was the most heartbreaking for me.

Works wonders if used correctly - go to site and don’t just rely on instruction sheet.
Educate yourself on how to use product. Go to infacol site and research somethicone which is main ingredient (As a nurse, I’m always reading into these things). Take before feeds and try your best to burp baby afterwards. Sometimes you’ll see instant results and takes a good week to work.
And as per other review. It doesn’t make babies drunk. Ridiculous.

This save my sleep
This wind drops saved me with my daughter. When she was 1 month old she screamed with pain. I was about to change Formulas but a friend recomended this. I gave it to my daughter from 1 month old in every bottle until she was able to roll and be more active. It helped her burp faster. You just have to be aware that some kids might be allergic and vomit or something. Always check with your GP
Couldn't live without this product
Being a first time mum I was so skeptical about giving my newborn "medicine" but when she was struggling with wind and I could see her little legs pull pull up I knew I had to do something to help her. After being recommended Infacol I thought I would give it a try....reluctantly but Infacol was the only product that could help with my daughters wind. Without this product I may have gone crazy! Thanks a million!
Review collected in partnership with Infacol
I was looking for a simethicone product when I stumbled on Infacol. The packaging says it can be used from 1 month onwards but our pharmacist said it was ok for newborns (ours is 3 weeks old). Infacol has really helped our baby girl with her colic, she used to have terrible colic and would not burp, she now burps really easily with Infacol. We add a drop of Infacol to every bottle top-up and it has been great, but don't use it excessively as it can cause diarrhea (we only feed bottle less than twice a day).
My now 4 month old was born with sever colic and this was a lifesaver at 3am in the morning when he'd been up screaming for hours due to pain and I'd add it into his bottle and he'd release all his wind/gas and sleep for hours. It's a product that actually works
Really worked for us!
Our little bub was crying in pain for hours but after using infacol for a couple of days we had a much happier bub - it was such a relief for us. We used it with every feed for about 6-8 weeks. When bub reached 3.5 months all her tummy issues seemed to settle.
So glad we found it!
We started our baby on infacol at one month, she had been up for hours with colic. We tried stacks of natural products, they did nothing. With infacol it's like she's a different baby, the colic is pretty much non existent and now we both sleep through the night. Such a godsend!!
my baby was suffering a lot and pharmacist suggested infacol over Gripe water. It's tested product and it worked for my baby. We give him 0.2 ml before every feed. Highly recommended if nothing is working, this might work for your baby. nothing wrong in trying. you can also apply little asafoetida around naval along with this and it will help to release gas.
A tried and tested remedy that has stood the test of time
I am so glad to see this product still on the market.
When l had my first baby in 1988, he had wind that bad; that every time I fed him he would scream in pain for hours while l gently massaged his tummy, put warm flannels on his tummy, gave him warm baths to try to settle him and nothing l tried seemed to work Example: Gripe Water which had a nasty sour taste and he would pull and aweful face before he spat it out and promptly went to sleep straight away only to wake up 10 minutes later screaming in pain
(l later found out it had alcohol in...
Infacol worked brilliantly for my son, he instantly changed into a happier baby. I like how its such a small dose needed and the included syringe has only the needed doseage lines which makes it much less confusing to administer along with the cap that allows you to turn the bottle upward whilst measuring. My son burps easiky after every feed when given infacol before a feed.
measuring device, reliable, cheap
Our little newborn girl had a lot of trouble with wind, intense reactions to her gut movement (poos, wind) to the point that she would not feed well, wouldn't sleep well and vicious circle with her getting overtired - typical colic symptoms. Was usually early evening for 3hrs or so but as she was getting to 6wks it was starting to get worse, starting from about noon with frothy air bubble poo. It was so hard to see her suffer (and us). We were desperate to try anything, already trying to wind her well leading up to that. On recommendation of la...ctation consultant we tried iberogast (can get at chemist) mixed with small amount of breast milk in syringe and also tried infacol with each feed (before or mid-feed). We noticed easier burping straight away, then a much larger poo then ever before few hours later and a much more settled baby rest of the day. I was pinching myself when she had an hour nap at 5:30pm that day (the cry o'clock time before). There were many more smiles between feeds. Not perfect next day still a bit unsettled with feeds or passing stool but could be settled (as opposed to screaming days before and very difficult to settle). I would recommend trial of this to anyone along with iberogast (herbal medicine)- neither particularly expensive. It has changed our little girl and saved our sanity. No problem with taste, very easy to give. Inexpensive, immediate effect, saved our sanity Nothing
A different baby!
Immediate change the first night we used them .. Amazing!
Great product. Would recommend to any new parents that has a baby up all night with sore tummy/wind. Easy to administer and its reassuring to only have to give such a small volume... Don't know what we'd do without them. All the best
Amazing.. Highly recommend you at least try..
Our son had really bad reflux and wind..he would keep us up for at least an hour after ever bottle. I tried Infacol and it was amazing! He was doing massive burps just from sitting him up straight after his feeds! It saved our sanity and made our bub comfortable.. Worth a try!!!!
Absolute god sent!!!!
Can't fault this product!!
My daughter is 8 weeks old she had been extremely miserable for weeks. She was always full of wind, we had tried gripe water, infants friend etc and nothing worked. One night at 10:00pm I was at breaking point so I ended up at Coles and brought infacol. it was amazing! It worked straight away and with each she become more happier! Love this product
Worked straight away and cheap!
