  • I have no experience with the medication, but have you tried different types of bottles? I loved the ones with the replaceable liners, really limited the amount of air ingested. When mine were that little I would swaddle them tightly on their tummies, and burp them like that to help release the gas.

  • yes....we have tried everything the med is a last resort. we tried every bottle and nipple-playtex drop ins are the best for him. we tried mylicon- didnt work. we bicycle, massage, etc- doesnt work. he is only having problems during his bottle. his zantac was recently increased- no help... i just dont want him to be in pain

  • Did you try the Gentle Naturals for Colic? Your baby doesn't have to have colic, it's good for gas. We used Mylicon on my first son and that made it worse sometimes. The all natural stuff worked much better.
