For new mums, a clearly uncomfortable and seemingly inconsolable baby is heartbreaking. Every little bit of you just wants to help your cranky little munchkin feel better and no amount of cuddling or cooing seems to work. But help is at hand.
Infacol has long been a favourite of mums to effectively treat their bub’s windy bellies.
Infant colic affects 1 in 5 babies from birth up to 4 months and can occur in both breastfed and bottle-fed babies. While the causes of colic are unknown, it’s thought babies get wind by swallowing tiny air bubbles during feeding which become trapped, causing pressure and discomfort in the stomach.
Infacol helps relieve infant wind before painful colic can occur.
How does Infacol help relieve colic?
Infacol has been specially formulated to relieve wind, infant colic and griping pain. It contains an active ingredient called Simethicone – a defoaming agent – that breaks down little bubbles in the gut, creating larger ones that are easier for baby to pass.
Suitable for use from birth, it works locally and isn’t absorbed in the bloodstream. With a pleasant orange flavour, the new and improved formula is free from sugar, alcohol and colourants. And a little also goes a long way – you only need to give your poppet 0.5ml before each feed using the handy dropper.
Here’s a summary of what you need to know about Infacol.
- Can be used from birth onwards
- Pleasant orange flavour
- Sugar, alcohol and colourant free
- Comes with an integrated dropper – making it easy to give to your baby
- Each bottle contains enough liquid for up to 100 doses
Always read the label and follow the directions for use. And if bub’s discomfort continues or you are concerned about your baby’s health you should always talk to a doctor.
