Made my baby worse than where we started

I changed from the brand Karicare to this because it was recommended for colic and what a load of crock. It did not but made my little man extremely gassed and upset his tummy to the point of having to go to hospital. It didn’t make him constipated but man he was worse than ever.
I left him on it for a few weeks to see if it got better but it didn’t and when we went to hospital I stopped use and went back to Karicare.
He’s doing a lot better since the switch back and it was an instant for him Show details

Worst formula for constipation

Brought this to help with the colic for out 3 weeks old. This formula, I thought was great for the colic, but sadly, on the other hand, constipated my baby, very bad to the point, she would scream to poo. Wouldn’t recommend. I would rather put up with the wind pains than the constipation pains. Show details

Constipation is WORSE than COLIC

I am so regret that I purchased this formula after i read a few positive comments. Was so worried about the colic and ignored the other negative reviews about the constipation. Now, it’s becoming worse than colic.
With colic at least, baby doesn’t cry with the pain, But now, it caused the other pain. Definitely not a way to solve colic problem with changing formulas. Show details

Novalac colic caused constipation

Our 6week baby boy suffered from severe colic so bought this thinking it would help not reading any reviews prior. Only used for 4 days and he went from pooping every second change to once per day and you could see him struggling. It’s such a gamble when you’re stuck and are trying to find a fix for your baby. Need to speak to my GP now. Show details

Good for colic but causes constipation

It is Very Good for colic but causes constipation for my son...side effects were shown after 3, 4 weeks...not sure why they don't add the constipation formula to this one... Show details

No Good!!

We used this formula for just over 3 weeks it made our 5 week twin boys both constipated which was recommended by a family member. It didn’t work for our babes, It Made them feel so much worse than making them feel better. Spoke with professionals advised that this is all marketing. Have changed formula and now my babies are not constipated. Will never use this formula again. Show details

Didn’t work for us

Unfortunately this formula didn’t work for us. I had great hope after reading the positive reviews (clearly works for a lot of babies), I used it for a few days, didn’t notice any difference. Then my son (4 weeks old) became constipated. Back to Aptamil Colic and Constipation formula for us. Aptamil hasn’t helped with the colic either, but at least it hasn’t made him constipated. Posting this if there are others out there looking for a solution for their colic/constipated bubs. Show details

Worked fantastic - game changer

Novolac colic worked wonders for my baby. We tried various formulas for his wind. Poor thing was letting off wind with lots of pain. Novolac colic helped tremendously. We noticed a difference within a few days and within a few weeks he was pain free. It’s a little more expensive than the usual formula but worth every penny. Unlike other formula this one needs to be prepared with warm water which is a must.  Show details

Saved us from Colic hell

We tried about several formulas and she screamed in pain. We just couldn’t figure out what suited her. Until we tried Novalac Colic. We saw almost instant change. She calmed down a lot more and after about a week on it she was a happy baby. At first her poop was a bit thick but we just gave her some infants friend with her feeds and she’s totally normal now. Show details

Hi, my 3 month old is drinking 120ml currently. She developed reflux recently. She was on Novalac AC for the past 2 months and it went well, however now she brings up most of her feed. Started her on Novalac SD a day ago and the cramps are back and she seems constipated too. Can I mix 2 scoops AC and 2 scoops SD in one feed?

Hi Nazmira, as soon as our baby experienced the stomach pain, we used prune juice, mix with plain water. Then he was able to poop. Hope it helps.
