I am sure that you have tried all of the usual colic remedies by now. There is no single tretment that is effective for some babies with colic. A combination of treatments using gripe water, telament drops after feeds and a probiotic such as reuteri infant drops daily seems to help the most.In some cases the use of a lactose free formula solves the problem.

Hi, If ur using Telement drops or gripe water - STOP! This made my child 10 times worse! Bennetts is a life saver!
Good Luck

Try Bennetts colic mixture for a start. Unfortunately it didn' t work for me as it made my baby vomit. I then tried Buscopan together with gripe water and the combination really worked for me in the end. Are you using Telament drops in his milk?
