    It encourages the wind to come out and is supposed to help ease tummy pains. Not suitable under a month old though. 5mls up to 6 times per day x

    I only use Infacol on Jacob as he just spits all the gripe water out but it seems to work really well on him.

    I wouldnt have thought it was? my mum said it was just mainly fennel based or thats what it used to be?

    We always use infacol with Sophie but sometimes its just not enough. I youtubed colic massage and theres a brilliant video on there that really works. Sophie had bellyache all last night and I did the massage this morning and she was finally farting away :D

    Woodwards Gripe water is alcohol and sugar free, many years ago it was but not now.

    It helped Sophia settle when she had a windy tum, seems to soothe it well and get some extra wind up. It seems as though they spit alot out but somehow it still seems to do the trick x
