Managing infantile colic

Colic is one of the most common FGIDs in infancy affecting 20% of infants.7 It’s also one of the most common concerns for which parents seek advice from healthcare professionals.3,5

Signs and symptoms

Clenching of fists
Extended periods of inconsolable crying
Pulling the legs up into the chest

In a trial of infants diagnosed with colic, those receiving a partially hydrolysed formula with reduced lactose, beta-palmitate and scGOS/lcFOS, demonstrated a 71% reduction in colic after two weeks compared to 39% in infants given standard formula with added simethicone.8

Managing infantile constipation

Constipation in infants, as in adults, is the passing of a hard stool with some pain and discomfort.

Signs and symptoms


Clinically proven to significantly improve gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms such as constipation and abdominal discomfort compared to standard infant formula.1


Infants fed a formula containing prebiotic oligosaccharides comprised of 90% GOS and 10% FOS, partially hydrolysed protein and a high beta-palmitic acid level produced softer stools and had a microflora with a higher proportion of beneficial bifidobacteria compared with infants given a standard infant formula.2*

Studies with a specialised formula containing prebiotic oligosaccharides (90% GOS and 10% FOS) demonstrated softer and more frequent stools with less constipation.4
