My poor little baby suffered with terrible wind as a newborn and he would always be uncomfortable and crying in pain. He found it really difficult to bring his wind up no matter what method of winding we tried and all i can say is thank goodness for Infacol! It was the first thing a family friend suggested when i told her about my sons wind and apparently it seems to work well for most babies.
I would give my baby two drops of Infacol before each bottle and when he was done feeding he would nearly always bring his wind up practically straight away whereas before it would take him ages. You do have to be persistent with it because to begin with it can seem like it's not having much effect, but once it becomes part of your babys feeding routine and your baby is used to having it, it works a treat.
It is perfectly safe and healthy for your baby too and it's Sugar free. Infacol is the medicine that most Health professionals and Health visitors reccomend first. It has a natural Orange flavour which my baby seemed to really enjoy.
Infacol comes in different sizes but i think a 40ml bottle costs around £4.50. We did find that we were buying it quite a lot because of how regularly my baby had it. But by 3 months old my baby was managing much better with his wind and could bring it up without the infacol so we no longer need it, but what a lifesaver it is for newborns!

relieve wind, infant colic and griping pain from birth onwards. It is sugar, alcohol and colourant free with a natural orange flavour. Infant colic is a common condition, affecting around 1 in 5 infants in the UK in their first month of life. Although it is not a serious medical condition and usually resolves by the age of 3-4 months, it is possible to alleviate the distress caused to both infant and parent. Any parent who experiences the distress of trying to console a baby with colic will want to help ease their baby's discomfort. How can I tell if my baby has colic? Your baby may have colic if she cries continuously for no specific reason and you are unable to comfort her. Colic most commonly occurs in the late afternoon and evening; your baby will cry out in pain and may draw her knees up to her chest and go red in the face. Her tummy may be swollen or bloated as if she has swallowed a lot of air, and she may pass wind more than usual. Symptoms not associated with colic include diarrhoea, vomiting or a raised temperature (over 38 C/100 F). If your baby suffers from any of these or if you are uncertain whether your baby is suffering from colic you should seek guidance from your health visitor, midwife or family doctor. What is the cause of infant colic? Despite medical research, no one is certain what causes infant colic. A likely explanation may be the build up of trapped wind in your baby's bowel, which may cause them to cry out in pain and discomfort. What can I do to help ease my baby's colic? Try giving your baby Infacol- which is clinically proven to treat colic from birth onwards. Other products used for helping to relieve the symptoms of colic are gripe waters for babies 1 month old and over and herbal remedies. You could also try to soothe your baby by rocking her gently or taking her out for a walk in a pram.
