Question: Hi. My baby is 2 months old. He sometimes faces gas problem. Dr. advised colic aid for that. I wanted to know if I can use Bonnison drops instead of colic aid?

Brief Answer:
Colicaid drops will be better

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM.
Can understand your concerns.

For gas problem we usually recommend colicaid drops which contains Simethicone.

Bonnison is a ayurvedic medicine so contents cannot be verified.

I suggest you to give colicaid drops when required.

I hope this will help you.
Wishing your child good health.
Take care.
