How often did you give gas drops to your little one per day?

It says you can give them after each feeding or just before bedtime. About 2-3 times in a 24hr period she deals with painful gas that keeps her up when she's tired. I feel weird giving her those drops all day, so I've only been giving them to her before bedtime. I just wanted to know if it's common for people to use them all day and how much they actually help.

  • i had this trouble with my little one too , I used to do the drops in every feeding and it seem to help him burp alot after his feedings , I also would brew up some chamomile tea and give them that before bedtime it helps with gassy feeling and sooths them too. so it was perfect , my mom used to put the tea in our milk bottles she said when we were little ones , she is the one that told me about the tea

  • Did you notice a significant difference when you used the drops at every feeding compared to when you didn't? I just want to know if it's worth it.

  • Are all brands basically the same?

  • I never used them. Are you sure your baby really needs them? Are you sure they are harmless? No infant should ever be given tea in a bottle. I am a grandmother and we knew 30 years ago that babies shouldn't be given tea. Just because someone tells you that is what they did doesn't make it safe.
