Neopeptine drops for infants with gas

Okay, like I said that the baby’s loose bowel motions got sorted by Bonnisan, the other helpful miracle we had with the infant gas and colic was Neopeptine drops for infants. We had been asked not to give gripe water to Nisarga. Opinions vary on this from gripe water containing something that is risky for infants to accusations of doctors wanting to promote branded medicines instead of traditional remedies. Whatever the truth is (and we never investigated) we were not giving him gripe water to prevent infant gas. However, considering that a friend who gave her child gripe water regularly had similar problems to ours, so I’m not certain the gripe water helps.

There are two things you need to know about infant gas. The first is that it is very painful and a leading cause of sleep deprivation for new parents. The other is that while medicines help, the biggest thing you can do is burp the baby and often. This simply cannot be repeated often enough.

Neopeptine drops have digestive enzymes, and really helped cut the amount of abdominal pain from gas discomfort the baby goes through. Unfortunately, it took us a while to discover how to use it.

Neopeptine drops for infants are available over the counter at most medical shops. So, if you are using Neopeptine drops for infant gas, here are some tips, which we wish someone had given us:

  • You have likely been advised to give Neopeptine drops only for extreme colic and exhaust other methods of soothing abdominal pain first. This makes you tend to wait for quite some time before the baby’s distress forces you to use it. You end up with a baby too worked up to patiently take drops and then too worn out and fussy to simply settle quietly. Don’t wait. Use it at the first sign of gas.
  • If your baby is suffering from intestinal gas, don’t give Neopeptine drops only when he is suffering abdominal pain. Give them for a day or two after getting relief from stomach pain as well, as long as you aren’t giving him more than three times, though we have given him four or even five doses once on the first day, when he was in a lot of trouble.
  • Give the drops before feeding. Pause. Then feed. Burp. Feed. Burp. Feed…. did I mention burp?
  • Neopeptine helps baby move the gas easier, but you can help it along. Give drops, burp, feed, burp, wait for some time, burp again.
  • Moving the baby’s legs will also help him pass gas, which will not hurt your situation.

Have you used Neopeptine? How did you use it? How was your experience?

    Hi Ujjal,

    I’m no doctor, but I don’t think you should be giving this regularly. However, you should try Bonnisan, if you think there is a need to support his digestion with something regular. It worked miracles for us.

    Hi Amrita,

    I don’t know what you should do, because every baby is different, but vomitting in itself is not such a big deal for a 5 week old. Nisarga used to quite regularly drink far more than he could cope with and return some, so to say. Our supply is also quite strong at that time, so its quite easy for the little one to throw up some. Very likely, if its on its way up, adding neopeptine only hastens the process.

    Burping helps a lot with this. If you burp him well, the chances become far less that he will throw up. Hang in there. Before you know it, you’ll have found your feet.

    You could try both ways it isn’t a medicine with risks of overdose as such, but it will probably help more to rub clockwise circles on his back very gently – use fingertips – that gently. Also try moving his legs like he was cycling and squatting. All this will help the gas move.

    As far as I know, they shouldn’t harm, but it is best to ask a doctor. Also remember a lot of the problem can be solved with good old holding upright and burping.

    My baby is 42 days old. ..She used to cry a lot in the night n thus the doc has suggested to give neopeptine drops everyday around 8 drops. .I give ber only 5 drops out even lesser than that. Isomehow get the feeling that she gets drowsy after that. . Will it affect her in any way and make her habituated to the medicine.

    To the best of my knowledge, there is no harm as such. There doesn’t seem to be any reason to get habituated to it other than getting relief from gas – which is a good thing. Will help her sleep better if she isn’t troubled by gas.

    de sakte hain, but it may not help so much. Depends on reason for vomiting. If it is gas, then it will help, but often while teething babies will put things in their mouth, which can be unclean and cause stomach upsets. Neopeptine may not help with that.

    My child is 50 days old she is suffering from loose motion of green watery should i give neopeptine drops and how much dose is adequate in emergency as my doctor is not available for some days

    I don’t think Neopeptine will help with loose motions. These are common with newborns. I’d recommend exclusive breastfeeding and giving nothing else – exclusive breastfeeding is best and ignore the loose motions unless she also seems ill in other ways – less alert or in pain for more than a few hours.

    This is how it is, pretty much. They take a while to settle. Keeping room dark, rocking him may help. Hold him upright on your shoulder so it helps him burp. Have a routine. He will settle in slowly. Never show impatience. Agitation will further wake him.
