Advantages Helps to bring up babies wind
Disadvantages None for us
As you may have seen from previous reviews when my baby was born 3 weeks ago he spent his first week in the Special Care Baby Unit, some of the time he was tube fed due to low blood sugar levels, however when he was moved on to being bottle fed a couple of days later we quickly discovered that like me and my husband as babies he was not very good at bringing his wind up, this would often result in him eventually bringing his wind up with what seemed like half his bottle of milk as well. Once he was home my midwife recommended a couple of things we could try in order to help with this problem, one of which was to try using Infacol on him, this is a product readily available and is designed to help with Colic, griping pain and also bringing up wind. We decided to give this a go, it wasn’t overly expensive so if it didn’t help we hadn’t wasted a lot of money, but on the other hand if it did help it would be worth getting on a regular basis.
My bottle of Infacol came in a small rectangle cardboard box, on the front of the box is the name of the product written in red writing with various pieces of information about the product, the top half of the front of the box is taken up with a picture of a sleeping baby. The other 3 sides of the box are plain white and again contain various bits of information about the product including what Infacol can be used for, directions for use, dosage and ingredients. This is all written in purple writing and is clearly set out and easy to read. The actual product comes in a chunky plain white plastic bottle, this has a label wrapped around the whole thing, and as with the outer box it contains the product name and product information, this is pretty much the same as what is on the box and again written in purple on a plain white background. The bottle has a plain grey plastic lid which has a soft top to it, this doubles up as the dosage dropper and the soft top is used to draw up the correct amount of the Infacol, the whole lid simply screws on and off of the bottle.
About the Product
The Infacol itself is a white syrup type substance, it is of a reasonable thickness and reminds me of Calpol. The product has an orange flavour to it so that it is not unpleasant for your baby and is sugar, alcohol and colorant free which I was pleased to discover as I wasn’t keen on feeding Jayden something that was sugary and bad for him, I have to admit I have tasted it myself when I spilt a bit on my hand and it does have quite a nice taste to it. Infacol is designed to relieve infant colic, griping pains and also helps to bring up wind, for me the main thing was using it to help bring up Jayden’s wind after his bottles. Infacol is suitable to use from birth so again there is no worry about whether you baby is old enough to use this product.
Directions for Use & Dosage
Using Infacol is very simple, this was one thing I was a little concerned about in that how was I going to get Jayden to take it before his bottle especially if he was crying.
