Does anyone use colief drops? Do you really have to wait 30mins from making the bottle until feeding? I think that will be a struggle at night.

Have you tried Dentnox? That can be added straight to the bottle Smile

Is it gas that he's struggling with? Have you tried the Tiger in the Tree hold? There's some videos on YouTube.

No nappy time on his change may might help too Smile

You do have to wait the 30 mins as it needs time to breakdown the lactose if i remember correctly.. have you tried infacol and gripe water?

I had an terribly colicy baby, you have my sympathies Sad

I honestly believe that a lot of the remedies make no difference, but you will try anything when you are desperate, we did!

The only thing we did was cranial osteopathy, if you have a google a lot of other people rate it too.

I used colief but only waited 5/10 minutes. I was breastfeeding so expressed a big and added the colief. It’s trial and error.
By the way I tried everything else, cranial osteopathy etc etc colief was the only thing g that helped (not a cure for colic but enough to keep me sane for the first year - yes, mine had it for that long).

To my memory we ignored the 'rules' and pre made bottles that we put in the fridge. Added the Colief to them (I think it was best to do it when still warm) so it was working on the lactose then (and to a lesser extent when cool in the fridge).
