Gas Pain in Infants and Newborns
Symptoms, Causes and Remedies to End a Baby’s Suffering
Angelika Rampal, MD
on July 23, 2013
Gas discomfort upsets almost every baby to some degree and it affects both breast-fed and bottle-fed babies. While gas pain is common and can afflict a child at any age, it is particularly bothersome in newborns and young infants between one and four months of age, as their immature guts are developing. Furthermore, some babies seem to suffer more than others due to inborn and environmental factors.
Gas is a common symptom of intestinal disorders, but it is rarely a sign of a serious problem, according to Donald Schiff, M.D. and Steven Shelov, M.D. at the American Academy of Pediatrics.
When tummy upset strikes a child, a parent’s first instinct is to find a safe and natural solution, but babies obviously can’t tell us the location and nature of their problem. Thus, knowing and observing the signs of intestinal gas is necessary to identify an effective remedy.
What are the Signs and Symptoms of Infant Gas?
Burping and Belching
Burping is a natural way of expelling gas built up in the stomach and you should encourage your child to burp during and immediately after a meal. However, if your baby hiccups, burps, belches or spits up excessively, it may indicate that too much air is being swallowed during feeding.
Spitting up is common in babies and can be normal. Most babies spit up, and it is often accompanied by a burp, during or soon after a baby’s feeding. However, sometimes it can be due to the type of formula, particles in breastmilk, eating too much or too fast, or it can be associated with gas build-up.
What Parents are Saying
Tummy Calm is single handily saving my sanity! My baby – almost 7 weeks old – has had gas troubles in her tummy since the day we brought her home. She would scream out in pain and nothing I tried would really help her. I was doing Mylicon drops religiously and it just didn’t seem to do the trick. Plus I was pumping her full of junk and I just didn’t love that. I tried every single gas remedy I could think of. Nothing helped. The day before yesterday, after she screamed in pain for two days despite my best efforts to help her, I came across Tummy Calm in an internet search on baby gas relief. I went out to CVS and got some, gave her a dose when I got home, and she is a different baby! She’s so much more pleasant when she’s comfortable. THANK YOU Tummy Calm!
Just got this at CVS tonight. Trying everything for my 18 month old screaming and crying nothing was working for his gas. Went to CVS to see what I can do for my son’s gas. They gave me Tummy Calm. I gave it to my son within 10 mins after giving him tummy calm he stop crying and went to sleep. I looked at the box and told my sister best $20 spent and will be using this more. Works fast which is great. I was feeling hopeless when my son was crying and kicking from his gas. he was able to go back to sleep. Thank you for working great and fast. Will get sleep now that my twins are feeling better.
When our kiddos are sick, we always like to try a homeopathic remedy before OTC drugs so we were excited to get to try Tummy Calm. We don’t generally have a stomach pain medicine on hand because neither of our kiddos like the pink stuff and we just haven’t found anything that actually works. Usually, we just give them anise water or a little clear, bubbly soda. That doesn’t always work and of course is usually loaded with extra sugars. I am excited and relieved to say that Tummy Calm is the answer to our stomachache woes. We have used it twice since we received it and both times it has worked quickly to make her stomach feel better. What a relief! Tummy Calm will be a staple in our medicine cabinet from now on:)
My 7 week old son has had trouble with his tummy. Gas/poop. Crying and also weeping little…Dr said extra water than Maalax…but I also tried chamomile tea and prune juice (i prefer natural stuff) and had the Gas-X nothing seemed to relieve the pain. I saw this on the shelf and was like I’ll try it! Gave it to him a little before his 9pm feeding and he slept for 6 hours!!! He usually sleeps 3. It’s an amazing feeling to have a 6 hour stretch of sleep again!!! Thank you tummy calm! Now let’s pray for poop!
I have been using this product for approximately a week now and it works wonders in about a minute. My baby almost never has prolonged gas issues and if he seems uncomfortable and unable to get it out, I give him Tummy Calm and the rest of the night is smooth sailing.
I will definitely keep a stock of Tummy Calm in the house for my son and recommend it to my friends that are also having babies. This is a truly a wonderful, pure and natural gas relief product for babies, and I am excited that I can also use this on him when he is a toddler and throughout his childhood to help with upset stomach, bloating or any tummy issues he may encounter!
Tummy Calm is great for gas and bloating it is also good for hiccups, teething and upset stomach. We used it about two weeks ago for teething and I was so glad to have it on hand. Jace was working on his eye teeth (three of them were coming in at once!) and he was miserable! It was an easy to use ‘remedy’ and worked pretty fast. I like that it is a natural and fast acting and free of Simethicone.
Gas has buoyancy and trapped gas essentially acts like a cork in the intestines, causing the flow of gastric juices to slow or stop. A swollen abdomen could be a sign that gas is trapped in the intestines, causing built up pressure to accumulate. Built up pressure thus causes bloating of the abdomen, resulting in pain and discomfort. A baby’s immature digestive system may be unable to cope effectively and some babies may experience painful cramps.
It is quite normal for babies to pass gas around 15-20 times per day. Gas can enter the digestive system through several sources including normal digestion of nutrients in milk and formula and air swallowed during feeding and crying. However, an excessive amount of gas may point to incomplete digestion of food due to a newborns’ very immature digestive processes, which have not had time to build up adequate beneficial flora (probiotics) and enzymes in the gut. Bad bacteria, viruses and other infections can also cause excessive gassiness, flatulence and even diarrhea. These infections may require medical attention.
Crying is simply how babies communicate a need. As such, crying occurs frequently and for any number of reasons, like hunger, discomfort, loneliness, pain, tiredness, or gassiness.
According to the “Dunstan Baby Language” system, a baby will cry out with an “Eh” sound if gas is trapped in the stomach and needs to burp, whereas an “Eairh” crying sound will be uttered if gas is trapped in the intestines. Though not scientific, this system or language may be helpful for some parents.
Parents tend to describe a gas cry as sharper and more acute as if a baby is in pain. With intestinal gas, you may notice your baby’s face turn red, fists clench, knees pull up into the chest, or straining and grunting sounds.
If your baby cries for three or more hours per day and at least three times per week he may have colic.
Restlessness or Insomnia
Any form of discomfort will make it more difficult for baby to sleep…likewise for concerned parents.
Gas is a natural by-product of digesting the nutrients in breast milk or formula and the digestive system normally expels it without any discomfort whatsoever. However, since gas is buoyant it creates pressure in the opposite direction of gastric flow. When gas becomes trapped in the intestines it causes a painful pressure build-up. There are several factors that contribute to this:
Incorrect Feeding Technique
A poor latch onto the breast or bottle results in too much air being swallowed at meal times.
Crying can cause your baby to swallow air, especially if he cries in hunger for a long period before a meal. Since crying is both a symptom and a cause of gas it can create a self-reinforcing cycle that worsens the problem.
The human digestive system is so complex that it has its own nervous system, the enteric nervous system, which controls the transportation of gut contents in a wave-like motion called peristalsis. A newborn’s gut is continuing to develop after he is born. The gut may still be learning to process food, gas and stool effectively. Gas may also be present due to immaturity in the gut’s microflora, carbohydrate metabolism and hormonal regulation. Gas may also be a symptom of constipation.
Food Sensitivities and Allergies
Breastmilk contains traces of foods from the mother’s diet. Some babies may be sensitive to these traces of foods according to La Leche League. One study by researchers at the University of Minnesota found a link between maternal diet and colic symptoms. Maternal intake of cow’s milk, onions, cruciferous vegetables (e.g. cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower), and chocolate intake were associated with more colicky symptoms in babies. However, in most cases, there is no reason for a mother to restrict her diet, especially from healthy foods. If you suspect a food sensitivity or intolerance, try keeping a food journal to track symptoms like gas, spit-up or fussiness. If you feel that your baby would benefit from dietary restriction, talk with your doctor. In a formula-fed infant, a trial of a hypo-allergenic formula may help if a baby is reacting to the cow’s milk protein.
Too Much Lactose
Breastmilk is often thought of as containing foremilk and hindmilk. The foremilk, which comes first, contains more of the sugars, lactose, while the following hindmilk is richer in fat. Some experts believe that too much foremilk may result in a relative lactose overload. This may contribute to gas or fussiness in babies. Many lactation experts recommend attempting to empty each breast before moving on to the next.
Some mothers may have an over-supply of breastmilk, a condition known as hyperlactation syndrome. In this situation, milk letdown is often fast or forceful, causing babies to gag or be fussy with feedings. Please contact your doctor or lactation consultant if you are interested in learning more about milk over-supply or breastmilk composition.
Overfeeding can cause problems if a baby’s tummy can’t cope with too much food at once. “Feeding too fast may produce lactose overload and increased intestinal gas from the breakdown of excessive lactose” says Bill Sears M.D., a renowned pediatrician, professor of pediatrics at the University of Irvine, and author of The Baby Book.
Transient Lactase Deficiency (TLD)
A temporary inability to produce sufficient quantity of the enzyme “lactase”, essential for digestion of “lactose” is a proposed explanation for some cases of colic or infant gassiness but the link is unproven. In general, babies are not lactose intolerant and lactose intolerance does not develop until around age 2, if it is going to develop at all. In fact, the lactose in breastmilk is credited for enhanced absorption of minerals and production of healthy gut flora.
Introduction of New Foods
New foods can make a baby gassy as his gut learns to process them. An excess of high sugar foods, like juices, can also cause a baby to have looser stools or gas.
Our digestions are aided by literally trillions of beneficial bacteria (probiotics) that collaborate with our bodies digestive enzymes to efficiently break down food and nutrients. Emerging evidence suggests that some healthy bacteria, like L. reuteri, may play a role in reducing gas and perhaps even crying and fussiness. L. reuteri preparations are available for pediatric use. Yogurts are also a great source of probiotics. Several studies have shown that the introduction of oral probiotics or probiotic foods can help gassy babies if administered over a period of several weeks. Interestingly, breastfed babies do have a slightly lower incidence of colic, gas and reflux and this could be due to the existence of probiotics in breast milk.
Tips for Relieving Gassiness in Babies and Newborns
Occasional bouts of gassiness in babies are inevitable, but when the condition becomes persistent and uncomfortable a caregiver can choose from several natural remedies:
Improving your feeding technique may help prevent an infant from getting gassy.
- Feed Baby at an Angle: If breastfeeding, keep your baby’s head and neck elevated above his stomach while feeding. If he is bottle fed, feed in a vertical position and tip the bottle slightly so that air can rise to the top, while
milk / formula sink to completely cover the nipple. Using a bottle with a curve or angle can help.
- Burp During and After Feeding: Pediatricians suggest burping in the seated position as an initial option but you can also burp your infant by holding him upright or over the shoulder. Orlando pediatrician Gregory Gordon M.D., suggests burping by rocking baby gently in a seated position. Try burping him in the middle and after a feeding session. Be patient as it may take a few minutes for the bubbles and gasses in infant’s tummy to surface but if a baby does not burp within a few minutes, it is ok to move on.
- Talk to a Lactation Consultant if Breastfeeding: Ensure that your baby’s mouth is latching on properly and that each feeding is neither too fast nor too slow. La Leche league advises that baby should be fed in a comfortable position. Contact a lactation consultant or La Leche League for support.
- Use the Right Bottle and Formula if Bottle Feeding: The best kind of bottle will have a soft nipple that contours along your baby’s mouth and lips thus preventing air from flowing along with the milk. The milk should flow gradually and slowly so the baby has time to drink and swallow without gulping excessively. Sometimes, switching formulas may help reduce gas symptoms.
Even with perfect feeding protocol a baby may still feel discomfort from trapped gas and hiccups. Burping is not always effective because gas forms in the intestines as well as the stomach. If your little one still appears gassy, the following external therapies may help expel gas when applied approximately 30 minutes after feeding or upon onset of symptoms.
- Football Hold: Carry your baby face down with the tummy resting on your forearm, legs straddling your wrist and chin resting near your elbow. Kathy Moore from About.com demonstrates here. Gravity will help apply pressure on the little tummy, which can help soothe and release gas. Give him a gentle back rub for additional pressure. A similar result can also be achieved by putting him face down on your leg, whilst you are seated.
- Tummy Time: Let your baby spend time on his tummy while he is awake and you are observing. Gravity’s gentle pressure can help push out trapped gas. This will also help your baby develop core, arm and neck strength!
- Tummy Massage: While your baby is laying on his back, gently rub baby’s tummy in a clockwise motion and then pull your hands down the curve of baby’s belly. Some pediatric nurses use the “I Love You” massage – use two or three fingers and apply mild pressure around the abdomen and spell out the letters “I”, “L”, and “U”. Repeat several times to help move trapped gas. “Tidley Pom,” an infant spa line, demonstrates some infant massage techniques here.
- Bicycling Baby’s Legs: While your baby is laying face-up, slowly pump both legs back and forth as if riding a bicycle. The gentle circular motion creates movement in the intestines, which can help loosen trapped gas. New York pediatrician, Cheryl Wu MD, demonstrates.
- Swaddling: Many babies are soothed by wrapping them up snugly in a blanket. Pediatrician Harvey Karp, MD, believes that swaddling simulates a sensation newborns experience in the womb. Many parents and child care providers swear by this method but in a controversial move, the American Academy of Pediatrics recently cautioned against swaddling. Parents should ultimately weigh the risks and benefits.
- Baby Wearing: In many cultures, babies are constantly “worn” by caregivers. Your baby may like to be in an infant carrier. Please ensure the baby is able to comfortably move his head and breathe while in a carrier.
- Pacifiers: Some babies are soothed by sucking on a pacifier, but vigorous sucking on a pacifier may contribute to swallowed air and subsequent gas. Make sure your baby is not hungry or asking for something else when you use a pacifier.
There are four types of gas drops and each works in different ways:
- Simethicone: Simethicone is a drug that is marketed as an anti-flatulent remedy for gas relief. Simethicone is a defoaming agent that binds gas bubbles together on theory that they can be more easily passed. Simethicone preparations usually contain synthetic ingredients such as artificial colors and flavors, as well as emulsifiers and fillers. Simethicone has not proven particularly effective in several studies.
What Parents are Saying
I love Tummy Calm. It works great!
Lorena R. – Phoenix, AZ
Your products saved my sanity… thank you!
Erin E. – Lake Forest, CA
“I am a HUGE fan of Tummy Calm! Since our son was born, he would wake around 4 a.m. with horrible gas (and he would stay up grunting and twisting until around 6 a.m.). We tried everything to try to eliminate it, including Simethicone double dosed per my pediatricians recommendation, without success. I googled infant gas and stumbled across your useful website, and thought it was worth a shot to try it. The first time we gave him the tummy calm at 4 a.m. he was relaxed and asleep by 4:05 a.m.! I was in awe! Since then we have had equally good success with it for gas. Then, the past two days we have been battling with teething pain, reluctance to eat, and broken sleep patterns. I read on the box it helps with teething, and gave him a dose last night. Promptly after the dosage, he quit fussing and he ate his first large meal of the day and fell asleep for 7 hours straight (he is going on 4 months old). Tummy Calm is a must have for every medicine cabinet for anyone who has an infant! Great stuff!!”

Tummy Calm® is an FDA-listed, homeopathic gas relief preparation. An over-the-counter alternative to gas drops with synthetic ingredients, Tummy Calm uses natural active ingredients to provide safe and effective relief to gassy babies, usually within five minutes or less. Unlike simethicone, Tummy Calm does not require constant dosing and does not contain any artificial colors or flavors. For more information about Tummy Calm visit our home page.
- Gripe Water: For more than one hundred years, gripe water has been a trusted remedy to treat infant gas. Pediatricians, nannies and millions of parents all over the world have used it. The highest quality of gripe water should be FDA listed, contain natural active ingredients and be manufactured according to FDA guidelines for good manufacturing practices (GMP) for homeopathic medicines. Colic Calm is the only gripe water that meets these high standards, and it works quickly – usually within five minutes or less, providing safe and effective relief.
- Probiotics: New Research suggests that supplementing with a pediatric probiotic may help ease some infant gastric problems if administered over a period of several weeks. If your baby has started eating solids, introducing a bit of yogurt into baby’s diet will also introduce your baby’s gut to different strains of intestinal bacteria.

Tummy Calm was developed by the makers of Colic Calm, already proven so successful in the treatment of infant gas. Here is what parents have been saying about Colic Calm, the precursor of Tummy Calm.
I love this product. From the time I brought my son home from the hospital he has been very gassy. Nothing seemed to soothe him. Being a mother of three under the age of three, I was going nuts until I tried Colic Calm. I was willing to try anything. I am very glad I chose this. I highly recommend it.
Megan L. – Smithville, TN
It truly has been a miracle in a bottle. Whenever Michaela gets fussy and acts like she has gas, we just give her a dropper full and it calms her down immediately. We are so grateful to have found your product, it has really made our lives less stressful, so thank you, very very much!!
Tammerin B. – Grand Junction, CO
This product turned out to be a dream come true! I have a 8 wk old and we have been having problems since birth with gas & acid reflux. I was desperate so I got on the internet & found this product after 2 doctors told me I’d have to wait and eventually he’d grow out of it. Since I am a new mom, they didn’t take me seriously. Well I am happy to announce I walk the halls a LOT less now & it DOES work almost instantly! The gas bubbles dramatically drop off in about 5 minutes and the hiccups are gone within 30 seconds tops!!! I have recommended this to all my friends with children and am ordering my second batch now.
Latricha N. – Billings, MT
Colic Calm is the only thing that helps my son’s acid reflux and intestinal gas. We are leaving for the holidays this weekend and didn’t realize we were almost out of Colic Calm until today. Our Christmas would have been ruined if we had to watch our son scream and writhe in pain the entire time. Thank you again for shipping this immediately…you saved our Christmas!
Sarah B. – Murfreesboro, TN
I happened to come across your product and am so glad I did! It has been a miracle worker. It helps our daughter to relax and relieves the gas and stomach discomfort that she experiences almost instantaneously! We are proud to say that she even sleeps through the night at only 2 months old! We could not be happier. Thanks again!!
Kristyn D. – Staten Island, NY
The product is great! It has helped our son tremendously. Colic Calm eliminates his gas pains in minutes, and he loves the taste of it. My wife was skeptical but I bought it because the testimonials sounded genuine. They are! Thanks!
Adam W. – Sherman Oaks, CA
It’s absolutely heart-wrenching to watch your tiny baby doubled up in pain from gas, bloating, and all the other uglies that come along with having an immature digestive system. I’m very glad we found Colic Calm, it really does work. We had tried a different gripe water but it wasn’t quite as well-roundedly effective in treating all the symptoms, plus it contains Sodium Bicarbonate — something we definitely weren’t interested in putting in our child. My husband and I are now ordering our 4th and 5th bottles of Colic Calm. It’s worth every penny.
Jodi D. – Kirkland, WA
We couldn’t live without Colic Calm. My baby girl cried 24/7 with horrible painful gas. We found out 15.5 weeks later that she is lactose intolerant. We used Colic Calm for her gas and it was the only thing that helped and we tried everything. Now we are on lactose free formula and use it to keep her from getting constipated.
Hilary V. – Woodside, CA
Thank you, for a wonderful, natural product that does what it says it will. I bought Colic Calm for my grandson. Every time he’s needed relief from gas pains, Colic Calm works almost immediately. Thank you for making my grandson his happy self again.
Katrina J. – Glen Ellyn, IL
Colic Calm was the greatest thing created for babies. My son is nine months and still gets gassy because he is just starting to eat real food. I can give him only one dose of Colic Calm and he goes right to sleep. My husband was a bit skeptical when he was smaller and I used it for the first time. Once he saw the results he became a true believer. I now tell all my friends.
Shamika C. – South Gate, CA
Colic Calm is excellent. My daughter from 2 weeks old, now 2 months, has some issues with colic. She is breastfed and this reflects on what I am eating. Thru the process of elimination, I have cut out salads and most dairy. This seems to help (just like her mother’s). I was using Mylicon and that would only help a little. I started using Colic Calm and I could hear it working instantly. Her gas gets expelled easier and she is so much more comfortable. It is priceless. When I asked my pediatrician about it she was excited to know this “old fashioned gripe water is still out there”. She was totally for using this, especially over Mylicon. It mayl take 20 minutes for the baby to start releasing the gas but, when they do, they will feel so much more comfortable. No more sudden wake ups from gas cramps.
Lisa M. – Brookhaven, PA
I started giving Colic Calm when my baby started suffering from gas at 2 weeks of age. It seems to be pretty close to a miracle. It works as soon as it is given and my baby loves the taste! It’s great piece of mind to know that I have something that will ease his crying. Thanks!
Genni B. – Key West, FL
I love Colic Calm. I wish I had discovered it for my first baby who had colic. For this, our third, the gas is horrendous and after I give it to him I can actually hear the gurgling stop in his little tummy. It also helps with his constipation and when I stop using it I can tell because he has harder bowel movements and much more painful gas. It has been a lifesaver for me and my husband. I would absolutely recommend coliccalm to anyone who has a colicky baby or one who has issues with gas and constipation. It really has made a huge difference in our lives.
Lorraine M. – Newington, CT
I am so glad that I found Colic Calm. My two week old was having horrible gas pains that were keeping us both up nights. The very first dose made a tremendous difference. He was a new baby and I am so grateful for your product. He is now 10 weeks and very happy. We are still using the gripe water, mostly before bed. I have told everyone I know about this product and what a difference it made. I think you should automatically package a first time user with the pacifier dispenser, it really helps with the mess. Thank you for your product and I will keep recommending it to anyone who has a grumpy baby.
Christa W. – Carthage, IN
I am happy to say that we are thrilled with Colic Calm! Our baby Madeline loves it too. We are first time parents, and when Maddie was crying with gas pain, we could not bear it. The first time we gave it to her for hiccups, we were so impressed, it cured them right away. She had them all the time when I was pregnant with her, and she still gets them all of the time, so it is so nice to have something to give her for all of her digestive problems that is both safe and effective. I plan on giving Colic Calm as a gift for the next baby shower I attend. I am sure it will be the best gift received.
Kimberly F. – Chaptico, MD
For the first three months, Hayden was waking up 4-5 times a night with gas. Since giving your product to him, he sleeps soundly all night. We will buy this for all future children and shower gifts! Thank you so much!
Nicki B. – Big Beak Lake, CA
Your product has worked wonders with my son. Most of the time it is the only thing that will help him. He has really bad bouts of gas and acid reflux, Colic Calm works better for him than the prescription medicines he has been prescribed. Thanks So Much.
Donna H. – Newport News, VA
When my son was 3 weeks old he started having discomfort from gas. I purchased 5 different feeding bottles thinking that it may be part of the problem. Nothing seemed to help. That is when I began searching the internet, and found your product. Of course, I asked the doctor and he said there weren’t too many studies done with gripe water, so I should read the testimonials. I was skeptical but was willing to try anything. With the very first dose it worked! I was estatic with the results! I recommend this to my friends with children. Thank you for having wonderful service representatives that only add to the positive experience of your already fantastic product.
Christina M. – Boynton Beach, FL
Thank-you for giving us our sanity back. Preston is my husband and a great father. Our first two children had no problems with food, gas, etc. or not that bad. They both just happen to be adopted. Then we had a biological child that cried about 3-6 hours a day with BAD gas. This kept up for about 4 months. I was reaching the end of my rope. Two toddlers and a crying baby, one night I couldn’t take anymore. I went to 4 different pharmacies and looked for something to help my baby. Meanwhile Preston was on the computer looking also. He found Coliccalm and ordered it. We acted like it was gold when it arrived. It has been the ONLY thing to help. It helps our littlest one when she’s been out in the wind, or sour stomach, or gas-it’s a miracle. She is now 7 months and we just ordered another bottle to use now and then, but it’s FANTASTIC to know we have a solution to our problems. God Bless you for inventing such an all natural, neat product, that WORKS!!
Sharon B. – Gardners, PA
The Colic Calm has worked great for us. Our little guy has always seemed to have pretty bad gas that doesn’t always want to come out as a burp. Therefore, his tummy is upset for longer than we would like because the gas needs time to work its way out of his system. After we give him a dosage of colic calm (which he doesn’t mind at all) he is passing the gas within 5-10 minutes and feeling much better. We had tried two other brands of drops before I found out about this product through a web search, and neither one of those worked as well. This has become a staple in our nighttime routine as well as something we keep handy just in case he needs it during other times in the day.
Angela M. – Colorado Springs, CO
We love ColicCalm. Ever since our little son was born, he was exclusively breastfed and so when he was always gassy and colicky we tried everything from massages, gripe waters, to changing my diet completely. After researching on the Internet, we found this product,and it is the only thing that works. Great product.
Shilpi D. – Fremont, CA
WOW! That pretty much sums it up! I have to say this is a miracle worker. I have a 3 week old, and her tummy gets tight and she’ll have gas real bad, and just cry like she’s in pain at least once a week and when i give her Colic Calm its like an instant relief for her. She’s back to her joyful, sweet, loving self. I must thank you for inventing such a wonderful product, I honestly can say there is nothing better out there to give your child. It’s so great that there is a product that is all natural, no side effects, and safe to give children of all ages! I recommend this product to every parent out there! Thank you once again for sharing this wonderful product with all of us!!
Cassie L. – Zebulon, NC
Well, I just ordered bottles 4 & 5 for my granddaughter. My son and his wife feel that the Colic Calm helps Allison (baby) to be more comfortable most of the time and I have to say when I see her she is very contented. She is only 7 weeks right now, so as she gets into the 3 month potential colic stage I hope first that she doesn’t have colic but if she does, I am sure it will help. Wish I had this when I had babies. She seems to have gas with cramps and uncomfortable burping and it does help. I also told my niece about the product and she ordered it and said she couldn’t thank me enough, her newborn was in real agony and she said it helps him immediately! We all like the fact that the product is FDA listed and natural. I have used charcoal before for my own GI upsets and I know it works. Thank you for a good product and good customer service.
Barbara C. – Garden Grove, CA
I don’t know what we would do without colic calm!! My daughter has horrible gas attacks several times a day, which causes her so much pain. We tried everything from massages, to baths, to mylicon, to gripe water and nothing worked. Colic calm works every time! I did have concern that it would stain all our clothes, but it has come out of everything. My only complaint is not knowing about it sooner! We can’t thank you enough!
Vanessa H. – From Our Facebook Page
OMG! COLIC CALM IS A GOD SEND!!! MY SON HAS BEEN BOTH COLICY AND GASSY SINCE HE WAS ABOUT A WEEK OLD. WE HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING FROM MYLICON DROPS TO GRIPE WATER TO TUMMY SOOTHERS AND NOTHING WORKED AFTER ABOUT 2 WKS. APPARENTLY HE BECAME IMMUNE TO THEM. I FOUND COLIC CALM WHILE DOING A WEB SEARCH ABOUT A MONTH AGO AND WATCHED THE VIDEO. I FIGURED I WOULD ORDER 1 BOTTLE AND SEE IF IT WORKED ON MY SON. ONCE I RECIEVED IT, I GAVE HIM SOME AND IT WAS LIKE A DIFFERENT BABY IN FRONT OF ME WITHIN MINUTES!! IT WORKED SO WELL THAT I ENDED UP ORDERING ANOTHER 4 BOTTLES AND HAD THEM SENT 2DAY AIR, JUST SO I HAD BACK UP!!! THANK YOU COLIC CALM FOR LETTING MY HUSBAND AND I KNOW OUR CHILD’S TRUE PERSONALITY, INSTEAD OF JUST A SCREAMING CHILD!!
Renee P. – From Our Facebook Page
This stuff is amazing! My son would cry for a few hours each evening, could never pass gas and was becoming constipated. Pepcid prescribed by the pediatrician helped a little put he was still miserable. I saw an add for colic calm and decided to give it a try. We gave the first dose when the crying began that evening. We were abl…e to put the baby down while we ate dinner, which we weren’t usually able to do. As we finished eating, my husband made a funny face at the baby, who got a huge grin across his face-he had only smiled once before! He has been a different baby since. We don’t even have to give it to him every night anymore. Occasionally cries, but only last a few minutes. Has 2-3 good bowel movements a day. I have and will recommend this to everyone!

I cannot say enough good things about this product. One night after being up almost all night for a week I stumbled across your website, I was a little hesistant at first because of the price but decided to give it a shot. My son has horrible belly issues and the nights it gets extremely bad and he cant sleep, I give him a little and dont hear a peep out of him after that. At times I’ve actually heard it popping the bubbles in his little belly. I ♥ you Colic Calm.

I absolutely love Colic Calm! I have never had an issue with my other babies being fussy and gassy but fourth baby was a different story! The first few weeks were rough and I felt so bad that he was crying and full of gas all the time. I found this product on the internet and what a blessing it has been, he loves this stuff and is a happy baby. When I ran out I tried to give him a different brand thinking it would do the same thing and he refused it. He really prefers colic calm to any other stuff I could give him. Worth the price and I do recommend this to everyone i know!!!!

Hi there. As a first time mom, I’ve learned a lot- and since our pediatrician suggested that Ollie had acid reflux and gas issues, I am so thankful that I found Colic calm. It not only helps relieve gas pain and indigestion, it also lulls him to sleep. He’s five months now and a happy healthy baby!

I have a three and a half week old that began having symptoms at 2 weeks. Ear peircing screaming, drawing legs up to belly and terrible gas. The symptoms occurred during feeding and lasted until our little baby would fall asleep only to wake up in pain. I started colic calm last evening. It worked with in 5 mins. This morning she star…ted to have the pains again and I gave her a dose…she has taken three naps after each feeding, fallen asleep by herself (in her crib-while FLAT) and slept peacefully. This product is a miracle. Thank you so much. Because of colic calm we have our happy little baby back. Thank you thank you thank you.

Thank you so much for being a product that honestly works like it says it will!!! I was skeptical about purchasing especially since Colic Calm costs about twice as much as other infant gas relief meds. But i am so glad i bought it! I used the others with my previous kids but they never worked this well or this fast!
