Is My Child Old Enough For Children’s Mylicon?

What’s The DIfference Between Infants’ Mylicon and Children’s Mylicon?
Infants’ Mylicon Gas Relief Drops work quickly to break down gas bubbles to help your baby naturally expel them by either burping or tooting. They’re safe to give infants—even the newest of newborns—at every feeding, up to 12 times a day. The active ingredient is simethicone, which is never absorbed into your baby’s system.
Children’s Mylicon Multi-Symptom Tummy Relief for Kids chewable tablets treat acid indigestion, heartburn, and discomfort from overeating in addition to gas and bloating. Children’s Mylicon similarly contains simethicone, like our #1 doctor-recommended gas drops, in addition to an antacid called calcium carbonate.
We also have a third product: Infants’ Mylicon Daily Probiotic Drops. Our probiotic supports healthy digestion and immunity. And, if you have a colicky baby, it helps reduce crying and fussiness by 50% or more over time!

CHILDREN’S MYLICON USE
How Much Children’s Mylicon Should I Give My Kid?
If your child is 2 to 5 years old and weighs between 24 and 47 pounds, the recommended dose is one tablet. Just don’t exceed three tablets in a 24-hour period.
If your kid is 6 to 11 years old and weighs 48 to 95 pounds, it’s two tablets, but not more than six in 24 hours. If their age and weight don’t align, ask your pediatrician what dose you should give them.
How Do I Give Children’s Mylicon?
Our product comes in chewable tablets, so simply give your toddler or older child the recommended dose, and have them thoroughly chew and swallow it.
How Often Can I Give Children’s Mylicon?
You can give your child our Children’s Mylicon every few hours as needed. However, if they’re 2 to 5 and weigh between 24 and 47 pounds, don’t exceed three tablets in 24 hours.
If they’re 6 to 11 and weigh 48 to 95 pounds, don’t give them more than six tablets in 24 hours.
For persistent symptoms, please speak with your pediatrician.
Up To What Age Can I Give Children’s Mylicon To My Kid?
Our product is only intended for children ages 2 to 11. If your child is 12 or older, talk to your doctor about what’s appropriate to give them for tummy issues.
What Should I Do If I Accidentally Give My Child Too Much Children’s Mylicon?
If your child has received more than the recommended dose, seek medical help right away or call the Poison Control Helpline at 1-800-222-1222.
How Should I Store Children’s Mylicon?
To maintain maximum effectiveness, store Mylicon around room temperature (between 68° and 77° F). We don’t recommend using it if it’s stored outside of those parameters.
Any Advice On How To Keep It Out of Children’s Reach?
Absolutely! Although the packaging is child-resistant, you can help keep it out of little hands’ way by storing them in a place they can’t reach. Some children can climb, such as on a toilet or counter—and Children’s Mylicon has a sweet taste—so a locked cabinet is the safest place to store any medicines. Try to remember to put them away after every use. And, dispose of old medicine in a way your child can’t reach it—like by taking it to a medication drop off location such as your local pharmacy.
