I have to say...this stuff just pissed me off!! I had no idea it was BLACK, and it got all over Ruby's clothes too...I've tried it now making sure she has a bib in, but now I have a bunch of ruined bibs. It also turned her mouth, and poops black. I did notice a SLIGHT difference, but not worth the hassle...I will only use it now if I am totally desperate...The only thing that has helped is a product called "Cocyntal" by Boiron. You can get it from Whole Foods...it doesn't cure my baby's colic, but it calms her down during the bad times, as it seems to really help her tummy.
Then be a better consumer than I was and send back the colic calm. They have a money back guarantee. I think the only reason we kept it was because for some stupid f'ing reason, my stupid MIL used it on my 4 yr old and it made her feel better. Go figure, it should have. So I guess I'll keep it for the older kids.
Beware of the Colic Calm postings. like the one from hugsfromtrina. These are affiliate links and Colic Calm PAYS these people to make postings, run blogs and websites, and indirectly recommend their product. See noLinks://www.coliccalm.com/affiliates/index.html .
This does not mean that the product is not helpful or that these people did not have good experiences with it, but as a consumer relying on their advice and recommendations, be skeptical.
thank you for your advice, but trust me, the moms on here do NOT rely entirely on any homeopathic method to "fix" our babies colic now or ever, we all have had good and bad experiences with any and all things tried and true. Sadly, I did look at the link you provided and if they are paying people, that is their prerogative, not ours, we can not say what other people do. The ladies here on this site rely on each others advice and help with our babies to get through what should be the best time of our lives and has turned into a very tough time for everyone involved.
If you have a baby with colic or have had any experiences personally we would love to hear from you, we don't get to hear from Dad's very often. Thanks again.

Hello Everyone! I am new to the group, and I just ordered Colic Calm. I hope it works. I tried the Colic product by wellement and it did not work consistantly, I am almost finished with the bottle and we may have had three good nights out of 10. If anyone else has exerience with Colic Calm please weigh in. To know that it stains is a bummer, I will find some old bibs.
I just wanted to add that colic calm may not be for everyone, but what it has done for my sons reflux is amazing. We worked with his pedi and went through several medicines and nothing was working. Finally his pedi told me to try colic calm, it worked. It worked very well. My son stopped vomiting up everything he ate and was actually able to sleep. We give him 1/4 tsp instead of 1/2, and it works just as well. It is black, and does stain. But I would rather have every outfit of my sons stained, than to see my son go through what he did before we tried colic calm. But like I said before this was not just something I saw online and ordered to try to help with my son. My sons pedi told me to get this after everything else had failed. I just wanted to post to say that if all else fails, try colic calm. lets not worry about stains! but if it really is such a big deal a little vinegar and soda paste on a toothbrush removes it pretty well.
