When Kayla brought her precious newborn baby home, she didn’t realize how difficult the first few weeks were going to be. Her little girl, Riley, would scream for hours every night and they had no idea why. Kayla told us, “We finally realized it was dairy and soy in my diet that was contributing to Riley’s discomfort.” She said, “Even with a strict diet it is nearly impossible to avoid soy and dairy at all times.”
At 3 months old Riley was still suffering with digestive discomfort so Kayla sent her husband to CVS to purchase some gas drops and an infant probiotic to help. He was unable to find any probiotics that were soy and dairy free and that is when he came across Tummy Calm. He brought the Tummy Calm home, happy he had found something all natural for his little girl. Kayla told us, “I was a little leery at first having tried other “all natural” gas drops and gripe waters with no relief for my baby.” “We hate giving her anything because we worry about side effects.”
Kayla was thrilled to finally find something that worked. “We began using Tummy Calm for Riley’s food sensitivities and have found that it also works great for her teething and other gas pains.” She told us, “We give it to her anytime she feels discomfort and we also give it to her before long car rides to help as a preventative.” “Tummy Calm has been a lifesaver for us!” Kayla tells us that Riley is now 4 ½ months old and they are still using Tummy Calm regularly now that her teeth are coming in.
After spending months preparing for the birth of her son, first time mom Busisiwe was not prepared for the long hours of Kuhlesibonge Moeng crying. Her beautiful new son was experiencing so much discomfort from colic and reflux and nothing she tried–not even the probiotic the doctor prescribed– was providing any relief.
When we asked Busisiwe what led her to Colic Calm she told us, “After weeks of sleepless nights I found Colic Calm on the internet when searching the word colic. I finally found the answer to my sleepless nights and most importantly, relief for my son’s colic.” She told us, “Kuhlesibonge Moeng was around six weeks old when we began using Colic Calm. I would give it to him before feeding or anytime he was showing symptoms of reflux or colic.”
Kuhlesibonge Moeng is now three months old and still uses Colic Calm on occasion. Busisiwe is happy to report, “He doesn’t need it very often anymore and is now ever so happy and cheerful.”

When we become parents for the first time, we find ourselves in a world of joy, love and self-doubt. As mothers, we want to make sure that we are doing everything we possibly can for our children, and we do. But if our newborn baby cries and cries, and there’s nothing we can do soothe him, the self-doubt creeps in. “What am I doing wrong?” “What am I NOT doing?” are constant questions that float across our minds.

I contacted Megan, who runs the blog, A Moment Like This, after reading her post on Facebook that Colic Calm worked like a charm for her baby, Greyson. Below, in her own words, is the story of Greyson and how Colic Calm helped soothe his cries.
Before I found Colic Calm, I researched all kinds of gripe water used for infants. I was surprised to find ingredients in them used for reflux that weren’t even recommended for babies or kids under five-years-old! I didn’t want to give my baby something that could potentially be harmful to him, but I wanted to have something Continue reading
Having Baby #2 is a whole lot easier—you know what to expect with the delivery, you have a handle on nursing, and you don’t have to buy all the equipment. For Aimee, it also meant she knew the signs of reflux. Her eldest child, Katie, was diagnosed with reflux, but as Aimee says, “My daughter had reflux as an infant and was put on Zantac. It did work, but I hated giving such a little baby prescription medication everyday.” So when Ryan, her second child, would cry and showed signs of distress, she knew that, once again, it could be a result of reflux.
Katie describes those times. . . Continue reading

Markeitha says, “She [Cyniah] screamed bloody murder for hours at a time. Everyone in the home would be frustrated. My older children (ages 10, 6, 4 and 2) would Continue reading
“Life was chaos.” That’s how poor Kristina describes the first two weeks of her son, David’s, life. David was crying—crying a lot. Kristina and her husband felt terrible, because they could see from David’s distress that he was uncomfortable, but they couldn’t figure out how to make him feel better. “He would cry after every feeding, arch is back and there were plenty of times he’d throw up after feeding. It was miserable for him and for us. We could tell he was uncomfortable. He hardly ever burped, so we knew Continue reading
