Hi Dear

Welcome to the Health Care Magic.

Habit of two hourly feed is said to be normal. It gives sufficient time to the mother for effective lactation. So that the baby gets required amount of milk and does not disturb the mother for feed frequently.

Bottle fed babies do engulf lot of air during feed which causes which is the important cause of colic.

Bottle fed babies also are prone to get some amount of infection recurrently. which in turn also a cause of colic.

Once or twice giving the dicyclomine drops is not going to harm,But better to avoid of making habit.

Hope the query is answered
