Infant Gas Relief With Mylicon Gas Relief Drops

Updated on May 17, 2009

Before I found the Dr Browns bottles my baby girl would have the hardest time because her belly was full of gas caused by the air bubbles in her bottles. A nurse recommened Mylicon infant gas drops to help with the gas and bloating that was making my daughter so uncomfortable and fussy..

When you shake a bottle to mix formula the top seems to have half an ounce of foam. Then as baby drinks the air bubbles traveling though the milk seem to make the foam even worse. I had this problem and it seemed not only was my gassy baby incredibly gassy and uncomfortable, but she wasn’t even able to drink all of her formula and we were wasting such a large amount of it.

Mylicon Infant's Gas Relief Drops Non-Staining Formula

I started using this for Ally’s infant gas problem by adding the recommened .3 ml for babies under 24 months to each of her bottles while I was making them. Like the packaging says, this is not absorbed by baby’s system so it’s safe to use in every bottle. The Mylicon infant gas drops instantly makes the foam and keeps it from forming while baby is drinking.

I went though a bottle of this stuff quick though. Just 1 fl ounce costs $12.99 so I switched to the Dr Browns bottles as soon as I could afford it for a more long term solution. I still use this when Ally seems to have discomfort by giving directly by the dropper supplied. She almost instantly seems happier.

Taste and Scent
I haven’t tried it but being that the only thing my baby girl has had is breast milk and formula, she didn’t seem to mind this at all. In fact when she’s really fussy I can give her some of this and she will stop crying just to move it in her mouth and taste it. She really seems to enjoy it. I bought the non-staining version, it has a sweet smell to it but is clear and doesn’t have any color added so no staining.

Dosage and Directions

Taken directly from

  • Shake well before using
  • All dosages may be repeated as needed, after meals and at bedtime, or as directed by a physician. Do not exceed 12 doses per day.

  • Dosage can also be mixed with 1 oz. of cool water, infant formula or other suitable liquids
  • For best results, clean dropper after each use and replace original cap

I talked to my doctor and she said that Mylicon Infant's Gas Relief Drops travel straight through baby’s system never being absorbed so there’s no worry of over dosage.
