What age can this be giving to babies? My little lady is 4 weeks on Thursday and has really bad colic.

4 weeks im sure, but my sil used it before that on advice from hv as her boy had terrible colic - check with ur hv

Ref availibility - after looking into it like others for months!!! Basically woodwards which is main brand stopped distribution due to licencing paperwork - its meant existing supplies in shops dried up a 2 months ago at least. Then boots own version became hot hot hot as substitute - hence zero to be found!

But this past week i found lots in two of my local boots, plus i know another boots nearby had them too so think boots kickstarted a big production overdrive - if its not on the shelves jusr keep checking each time ur in n u will get lucky - i got 4 the other day which should do us till issy is past the wind

Good luck x
