Colimex should be given after 6 months of age.
Colimex -DF is safe.
When the baby comes to 3 months,intestine gets matured and there will be less intestinal colic problems.
You must burp him after each feed.
If the baby is not sleeping due to intestinal colicky pain,Colimex DF will help.As the action is for 6 hrs,give it regularly.
For passage of stools regularly,give more fluids to your baby.
Once he passes stools regularly,his discomfort will go and will sleep normally.
Nothing to worry.
If you have any queries,i will clarify further
Wish your baby good health
