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.
This website provides useful information on infant colic, including answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ's) and advice on how Infacol can help.
Infacol is a clinically proven medicine for treating trapped wind, infant colic and griping pain, and is suitable to give from birth onwards.
Some babies take in more air than others when feeding, whether they are breast or bottle fed.
Wind can be distressing and may prevent adequate intake of nutrients - because your baby's stomach will feel full and feeding will stop.
After and possibly mid-way through a feed you should help your baby to bring up any air that may have been taken in with the milk.
