What's the best anti-colic medicine for babies please? X

And also formula if you have any recommendations? I have Cow & Gate but my midwife said Aptimal was better?

I found cranial osteopathy worked wonders. Problem solved in a couple of sessions. At the time (when the manipulation, super gentle, was taking place), I thought I wasted my money but the night after the treatment was the beginning of a new era. The rest (Gripe water, Infacol etc..) did not seem to have any significant impact.

Thanks. I had heard about that. I'll look into it. X

Cow and Gate and Aptamil are made by the same company so there is no difference.

My son had colic for a long time! Tried absolutely everything! Then my mum told me to try gripe water and he's never had it since. I used to give him 5ml before each bottle! Worked a treat smile xx

My DS had colic really bad he slept for less than 1 hour a night it was really awful to see him in pain, then someone recommended coleif - it's expensive for what amount you get but it's so worth it! X

There is no best formula. It is all very tightly regulated so there is very little difference between them. One baby may prefer another brand.

What is your baby's specific problem? Wind, crying, constipation and how old is your baby?
