Yes, you can use these two treatments together for colic.. Try your baby on Lactogen1 rather than NAN1. This should help with his constipation.

Bennetts contains over 4% alcohol! Isn't this the same as a beer? Who in their right mind would give alcohol to their baby, and even worse, what unethical manufacturer puts alcohol into a remedy without giving clear warning of this first? Very few people look at the ingredients. My paed said he has had 2 babies that stop breathing using Bennets. Buyer beware!

Please do yourself a favour and read the side effects of the Bennetts Colic Mixture. One of them is constipation, so I really wouldn''t recommend using it!

When using Telament Drops with my first baby, they really didn''t seem to work. The drops are too heavy and don''t break up. I then started diluting them with a teaspoon of boiled water, and it worked wonders. Also make sure that you are giving the drops to baby before feeds.

Good luck!

Hi Simone. You said you dilute the telament drops with 1 teaspoon of water. So how many drops and teaspoons would you give baby?
