    It was my absolute Godsend!

    My daughter was crying constantly, was really windy, it was waking her up at night etc, she would just sudednyl start crying and calmed down once she'd farted or burped. Gave her inficol and with in a day was so much better!

    Still a bit windy but she loves the taste of it LOL

    There's nothing to worry about with Infacol. The information leaflet even says that an accidental overdose isn't usually harmful, it's a fairly innoccuous medicine, as medicines go. Basically it has an ingredient that makes all the little air bubbles which are stuck in baby's tummy (causing the pain) join up into big air bubbles which then can come up.

    It can take a few days for it to work (it's a cumulative effect), so don't be surprised if there isn't an improvement straight away. The other thing to consider is gripe water, if you'd prefer that to infacol.

    Hope you find something that helps with your LO's wind soon.

    I used it with my LO and it really helped - don't think there is anything to worry about in regards to its ingredients etc! Good luck

    Yep - used it with Earl since he was 10 days old! Good stuff and he loves the taste of it so now I just use it at night to calm his tummy as his wind has really dropped away!

    It really does work though so I hope it works for your little girl! If not, try gripe water as while it doesn't work for Earl, again it is supposed to be good. Thankfully they're both really cheap so why not give them a try.

    It's fine!! I've used it for weeks now, it's not absorbed into baby's system so it's totally safe.

    Infacol is fine to use, though didn't help much. Try gripe water!

    Infacol was my lifesaver with Austin when he was younger. I would highly reccommend it xxx

    I didn't find it helpful I'm afraid but it can't hurt to give it a try. The one thing i noticed was that LO was pooing less often. Could just have been coincidence but it seemed to go back to normal when i stopped giving him the infacol
