This seems to work alright for my 9-month-old, but he sure does hate the taste. I tend to buy him Little Remedies from Amazon, because Walmart stopped carrying it in-store (YMMV) and my baby likes the taste considerably better.

This is such a great deal. My daughter is 5 and has gastrointestinal issues because of her disorder. So gas always causes her a lot of pain, and we go through a lot of this medicine. I typically buy generic to save a little money so this is amazing for us! Thank you for sharing this deal!!! You just saved me money and stress!

We are in the same situation for my disabled son that is now almost 20. He is tube fed and cannot take anything orally. For some reason, simethicone doesn't come in liquid for adults, so we buy a lot of this. (Not that anyone will ask, but it is also very difficult to find tablets that will dissolve enough to go through a g-tube.)
Best wishes to you and your family and a big thank you to the original posterApplauseApplauseApplause

My guess is that the adult pills are way cheaper. The only reason they can get away with charging these prices are because they are for "infants"...even though it's the same thing except in different form

Have you tried looking for the chewable tablets? Should be easier to dissolve.

Great timing for this SD. I have a one-month old and spend a considerable amount of time trying to get him to burp and fart.

A summary of my experiences with a gassy baby the past 40 days:

Mix this (and any other brands) into a warm water bottle(I use my zojirushi bottle since it maintains perfect temp all day and night) first in proportional dosage, so you can save time while mixing it into your expressed milk/formula. This stuff clumps and that is a pain at 3am.

Feed with a low-flow bottle if using bottles, such as the Dr Browns. If baby downs the stuff too quickly, you'll have massive gas issues.

If using bottle, fill nipple totally hole feeding to prevent gulping of air. This seemed not a big deal but he really has less gas to burp out once I considered this.

Do bicycle kicks with baby's legs and bring the knees to the chest to encourage farting. If you're doing it right, the gas will come right out his/her rear as you do it.

Elevate baby for a few mins (sit him/her up) after finishing the meal. When I use these drops, he burps on his own within maybe 5 mins.

When burping, rub back up and down, pressing belly against your shoulder. You'll get some huge belches this way.


Finally... Lactose may be causing the gas. Bring a stool sample to your pediatrician to examine for possible lactose intolerance /sensitivity. If you're breastfeeding, you'll need to change your diet, and using formula, you'll need one of the "sensitive" formulas. You'll know it as well if you got some explosive diahereas.

Aside from benefits for immunity... Breast milk has more whey and is quicker to digest...this has the double sides effect of bring less prone to gas and spitting up... Also means baby gets hungry more.

Indeed. For example we have an infant that is prone to eczema. We've found what works is the Aveeno (brand) eczema cream (nightly - it keeps the eczema at bay). The infant version is around $12 for a tube but the adult version (or rather, not-specifically-baby-branded) is $10 (both 7.3 oz). The ingredients are the same, in the same order. So yeah they're slapping "baby" on one tube and charging a 20% premium for it.

Anyway, having twins we went through a lot of this for a few months - but I started buying the generic version @ WM ("Parent's Choice" which is their store brand baby line) which according to the grocery app is going for $3.62 for 1oz - nearly the same price as this deal but the generic price is every day, not a special sale.
