Doesn't work. But you'll be so desperate that you'll buy it just in case it might.

It helped my daughter so i would reccomend it

Found this really good and when you have a "screamer" on the go, its cheap at 10times the price.

I didn't think this helped until we ran out of it.

If you feel your baby has colic, it may well be a degree of reflux, discuss with your doctor, especially if its worse immediately post feed and onlying down, infant gaviscon works well in these situations

My mum gives this stuff to the dog and swears by it (Border terrier - sensitive tummy).

Thank god these days are over. Works sometimes but worth £1. HEat

Ours has reflux but infant gaviscon made him constipated, paedeatrician prescribed ranitidine & domperidone, he's still puking loads but he isn't in pain anymore.

This is nothing more than a placebo to give desperate parents false hope. Don't waste your time or money.

I have to disagree. Definitely worked for our baby. Not even sure how the placebo affect can apply to a baby!

I guess for some babies it works and for others it doesn't.

As a doctor I can assure people it doesn't work. Nor does colief, or special feeds. As to the placebo effect - it could apply to parents e.g. you could attribute your baby getting better on his/ her own as evidence that the infacol/ others are working. On the other hand it's your money and your baby so feel free to ignore this advice...

I for one will be investing in good old fashioned paracetamol/ other things for my 15 week old.

Other doctors must disagree with you or they wouldn't put it on prescription.

Stocked up on these from Manchester
Normally £3.04 at Tesco so bought the lot.

Paracetamol for colic? You ain't no doctor.

We used this for our son when he was a baby (8 years ago now!), and it helped, but not a cure. He used to get it bad, and its horrible when they scream and there isn't much you can do for them.

The thing we found that helped massively, was to use Dr Brown's bottles, and once we staretd using them, he didn't suffer from Colic again.

Totally agree. Dr Brown's bottles made a huge difference. Would definitely recommend them if you have a colic baby.

I guess it's your child and your money... However trust me when I say we now think it is ineffective. I suspect other doctors do it due to pushy parents/ lack of any other options as nothing has been shown to work.

PS would be more than happy to change my mind if you can show one good trial that supports these snake oils...
