“One product I found to be very helpful my baby’s first year was Mylicon,” says Lezli Braswell, MD, a mom of one daughter and two sons and a family physician, in Columbus, GA. “I gave it to my baby when he was fussy and I couldn’t identify any reason other than a tummyache. Mylicon is not absorbed into the bloodstream, so it is generally considered to be quite safe. I’d try administering a dropperful, and sometimes it would be followed by a big burp and then less fussiness.”
You can buy Mylicon in stores and online for around $7 for a 1/2-ounce bottle. (Talk with your doctor before giving your baby this or any medication.) Visit Mylicon.com for more information.
