  • i dont know if you are BF or not but i thought my DD was showing signs of colic and then i saw the symptoms of lactose allergy and she had almost all of them so we switched to Soy formula and she turned into a different baby!!! she was just not tolerating the lactose in the regular formula...if you ARE BF then you can look up things to change in your diet to cut down on gas in your!!

  • I tried the gas drops with my daughter and they worked ok...then I found all natural tablets at wal-mart for colic...they worked wonders! and put me at ease about what I was giving my child since they are all natural (desolving) tablets.
