How to give Babycalm to a newborn from the refrigerator

Moms, who was on IV, tell me. We were prescribed Baby Calm for colic, but they didn’t explain how to give it (( Anyone experienced, please enlighten me, is it possible to add Baby Calm to the mixture? I want to try this, because firstly, it needs to be stored in the refrigerator and in its pure form the medicine turns out cold, and secondly, because of the specific smell, I think my son won’t appreciate it ((

I wouldn’t mix it) It happens with children - the taste of the mixture changes a little and everything goes wrong, and how to feed it then? In general, you can also give your child dill water to drink - a proven remedy for decades.

The instructions for use say it is possible, so it is possible. But perhaps the taste of the mixture may deteriorate, since the medicine still has some taste. And as a result, the child may not finish this mixture and, as a result, there will be no effect. It’s better if you give Baby Calm yourself

You can also add it to the mixture. But it is better to give it in its natural form. My child was also prescribed it. But I didn't add it to the mixture. And she opened her mouth slightly and, using a pipette, poured in the required dose. Then she gave me some water. And then there’s the mixture. If it's cold, warm it up to room temperature. Nothing bad will happen if it sits out of the refrigerator for two hours.

Why add it to the mixture? There is also a pipette there, which is very convenient to give to the baby just like that, on his own. The only thing: several friends of mine gave their babies this drug for colic, at first it helped, and then the colic returned again. You check, maybe the formula is not suitable for the baby and it is better to change it, but colic has a reason... don’t rush to give dietary supplements right away.

You can, of course, add it to the mixture. If the baby eats well and drinks the entire mixture, then this is a good option to give medicine. My child either drank the formula or not. If you also have such a whim, then it is better to give it separately. The taste of the drug is more or less pleasant, try it. To make it easier to give, put it in a special measuring syringe (I have some left over from other medications), place the child in your arms and lift the upper body. The medicine must be given by the cheek, so they don’t spit it out. If he spits, pinch his nose and he will swallow. It’s better to do this execution with dad.

Hello Nadezhda. Of course you can add Baby Calm to the mixture. In principle, this is even written in the instructions. Read it carefully and see for yourself. It’s all described in detail, what and how and in what proportions should and can be added.

About the drug

Babycalm anti-colic remedy is prepared in the form of a solution. This viscous liquid is a combination of concentrates of vegetable oils of anise, mint and dill (fennel). This versatile composition determines the pharmacological significance of the drug:

  • Mint has a calming effect.
  • Anise stimulates intestinal function.
  • Dill has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, reduces pain and spasms. The carminative effect is also due to the properties of this component.

The interaction of these vegetable oils allows you to quickly cope with flatulence, and the natural composition allows you to use Bebicalm for newborns.

Release form and composition of BabyCalm

The dietary supplement BabyCalm is not a drug and consists of natural ingredients:

  • active ingredients: concentrated oils of mint, anise and fennel;
  • excipients: glycerin.

This product is produced in the form of a mixture of concentrated oils with glycerin in a volume of 15 ml in a dark glass bottle of 50 ml.

Perhaps someone will ask: why do we need glycerin? The answer is simple: this component allows the oils to dissolve in water when you add it before use. This substance is not dangerous, non-toxic and does not harm the body.

How to use babycalm for newborns

Another indicator in favor of the naturalness of BabyCalm is the short shelf life after adding water, namely 1 month. This indicates that the composition does not contain any preservatives.

Indications for use

The use of the medication is prescribed for bloating in the abdomen, pain, and severe gas formation.

Despite the naturalness and safety of the medicine, it is important to remember that diarrhea and constipation are not among the symptoms that Baby Calm relieves. Loose stools can be a sign of dangerous infections, so it is important for parents to consult a pediatrician and not self-medicate. The neonatal period requires professional prescription of pharmacological agents. Also, you should not allow the use of medicine for the purpose of prevention.


  • Recently, children are very often allergic not to artificial components or substances, but more to natural ones. Many doctors do not even recommend that the baby come into contact with various herbs, because... they are considered a source of allergens.
  • Despite the fact that BabyCalm is a natural drug, it can cause allergies quite easily.
  • If your child is allergic to any of the components included in BabyCalm, the drug is contraindicated for use.

  • itching and rashes on the skin;
  • child's irritability;
  • excessive sleepiness;
  • changes in bowel habits (constipation or diarrhea);
  • the appearance of swelling (which is very dangerous).

You should not continue using this supplement.

Adverse reactions

If the dosage regimen is not followed, taken frequently and for a long time, or if an undiluted product is used, the likelihood of an allergy or overdose increases. Allergens contained in plant components can cause rash and itching.

It is advisable to conduct tests for a possible allergic reaction in the newborn. For this purpose, 1–2 drops of the diluted substance should be given to the baby in the morning. For some time (usually 4–5 hours), the mother observes the condition of the child’s skin and notes changes in behavior. Skin rashes or excessive agitation indicate the appearance of negative allergic symptoms.

Mothers really like the medicine because of the rapid onset of the therapeutic effect. The product gently relieves the symptoms of colic.

The cost of the drug is acceptable, 279-349 rubles.

Another disadvantage of the drug is the possibility of an allergic reaction to the components of the drug in newborns.

During this period, infants have weak immunity. If allergies occur, mothers use simethicone-based medications.
