Telement drops

The dosage instruction on the Telement colc drops bottle states 8-12 drops in each feed. If my baby has 6 bottles per24hours , can I use d drops in each bottle or should this dose of 8-12 drops only b given 3x in a 24hr period? Please HELP ! Thank u

The Telament drops should be added to each feed. Eight drops per feed is enough.

Hi there,

I have two boys (now 2 and 4) and i used telament drops for both. You give 8 drops in each feed for two weeks and then you start taking it away slowly (i.e put it in every second bottle, then every second day then every third day, etc) until you don t use it anymore. you then just use it when your baby struggles with winds.

When I told my paed that I was giving it with every feed, he told me to stop! He said I shoud rather only give it once a day, with the feed at which time she experiences the most cramping. For example if u notice that the period of cramping is worst in the evening...then only give it to her (for relief) at that feed.
He was not happy at all that I was giving it with every feed!
