What are your thoughts on infacol?

In what way?
Infacol is good but I wouldn't rely on it

My lo never had colic thankfully. But I've heard it's quite good. Why?

Ok, but Colief is better.

Lots of people o speak to don't rate it and say it's pointless. Our baby is extremely gassy and the doctor recommended it to us to try.

I was just after other parents opinions to see what you thought of it or if there is anything else out there.

I found it great and used a lot.

Yes good if your bubs needs it. i would if I were there again.

It was the only thing that worked for my DS. Colief didn't work and I couldn't get him to take enough gripebwayer for it to be effective.

There is no medical evidence for the use of infacol or colief. Our local children's hospital pharmacy doesn't even stock it! You will always find anecdotal reports of success, however it's more likely that simultaneous methods people try such as using a dummy, wearing a sling, movement are what helps.
Having said all that, my first child was colicky and I gave infacol a try, ha ha! It won't do any harm apart from to your wallet - colief is very costly too.
This is a good article on colic.
At the end of the day it will improve and causes your baby no long term harm. I hope it settles soon for you.

Will your baby take a bottle? If they will; dentinox colic stuff can be added to the feed so you don't need them to swallow it, I find it helps, DD2 and now new baby have it in early evening/ night feeds- when they are sleepy so less likely to wind as well so it doesn't build up and lead to an unsettled night.

DD used to scream in the evenings arching back etc. Tried infacol and that had all stopped within a couple of days. I mentioned it to dsis and she said 'oh yeah that stuffs great did I not mention it?' No you bloody didn't after 3 weeks of screaming!

Didn't work on my first. Felt a bit pointless so we gave up with it after 3 weeks.

Heirhelp Thu 26-Jan-17 07:14:28

Did nothing for my baby but that was because the problem was reflux. Gripe water did wonders for wind but they have to be 4 weeks for that.

Worked for us in conjunction with anti colic bottles. We tried colief first but found it very fiddly.
