I had my little on on tellement drops since she was two weeks old and I want to take her off it now. I am worried that she might depend on the drops to help her burp.

Telament drops are a silicone derivative known as simethacone. Telament drops are used to release excessive amounts of gas in the gastro-intestinal tract in infants. These drops are not actually absorbed into the body.They have been used for many,many years and have an excellent safety record. It is highly unlikely that a baby could become dependent on these drops.

My baby is on telament drops and she developed an allergy, runny nose and watery eyes. The dr thought it was her formula and changed it to Nan HA. At the same time we stopped the drops as well and the allergy disappeared. She was however developing excessive wind in her tummy and we re-introduced the drops and the allergy re-surfaced. Is it possible that the drops are causing this.
Thank you

My daughter was on telement drops (every bottle from about 2 weeks to 5 months) and she was a very happy baby and didnt change at all (like she would have if she was dependent) when we took her off.....I am a firm believer of telemint drops...in their bottles.
