It's stinky, but mostly normal

Your baby’s gas is mostly just a normal part of life.

It may be audible and odorless, or silent and stinky, but overall, your baby’s gas is and will always be a normal part of life. In fact, babies can pass gas between 13 and 21 times per day, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, because they are spending so much time digesting their frequent meals and tend to take in excess amounts of air during routine activities.

Infants’ MYLICON® Drops relieve the discomfort of infant gas frequently caused by air swallowing or by certain formulas or foods. They are safe because the drops are not absorbed into your baby’s system. MYLICON® drops are safe enough for even the newest of newborns and can be given with every feeding*. (*Use only as directed, do not exceed 12 doses per day.)
