I am a first time grandmother. I used mylicon oral for my children when they were babies and I recommended it to my daughter. We give it to our baby 15 minutes before feeding and occasionally when needed after feeding. We notice the difference within minutes of administering the medication. We couldn't have a peaceful night sleep without it!
