You can use colic drops when your child develops colic around 3 to 4 weeks after
birth. Colic development can be due to various reasons. Consult your
paediatrician before giving anything to your child except breast milk till (s)he
is 6 months old. Colic, gas and reflux usually become evident in babies from as
early as 2 weeks of age. For such young babies, a few colic drops provide relief
to the child in a few minutes.
Crying and colic are not the same thing and so it is important to identify the difference and address it.
