  • Gas drops are fine for infants of any age. Just go by dosing instructions on the package.

  • Yes. I gave mine Mylicon when he was 2 days old. They are safe from birth. I like the Target generic infant gas drops. They work just as well and are half the price of Mylicon.

  • its safe to give a baby of any age but nothing can replace burping after every ounce, rubbing the tummy, patting the back...

  • I gave my son Mylecon on the day we brough him home. It says it is safe to use but thankfully we only used it every once in a while. They also have Hylands Colic Tablets that are homepathic.

    If you are using formula add some probiotics to teh formula. If you are nursing you might have to watch what you eat. Gl and Congrats!!
