Brief Answer:
They are safe

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I understand your concerns but don't worry. Mylicon infant drops are safe for this age. You may give 0.3 ml if required.

Ensure exclusive breastfeeding and proper burping in between and after feeds to prevent colics. Avoid any medications for mild discomfort and gassiness.

Hopefully it will be of help. I would be happy to help you in any further questions.
Take care
