What are Dentinox Infant Colic Drops for? 

Dentinox Infant Colic Drops are for the gentle relief of wind and griping pains caused by an excess of trapped air. The drops help the baby to burp. 

Baby can swallow too much air if he/she:

  • Eats too quickly.
  • Uses a dummy a lot.
  • Sucks his/her fingers.
  • Cries hard .

The swallowed air forms bubbles. These get stuck in the baby’s tummy, making it swollen and painful. Baby will probably cry, often with legs drawn up and fists clenched. It may be difficult for you to calm the baby down.

These symptoms are often worse in the early evening. The activated dimethicone in Dentinox Infant Colic Drops is a “surface active agent”. This means it can burst the air bubbles trapped in the baby’s tummy, which are the cause of colic.
