To answer your question about comfort and colief drops. My 2 month old son at the time (now 4 months) had a really bad time with reflux, we thought he had colic, so first he had infant gaviscon fom doctors,and it was making him constipated. took him off that, we changed his milk from cow and gate premium formula to comfort and added colief drops then we realised that the comfort milk says not to be used with other thickning agents as comfort milk contains thickners, as my son became very constipated and had rubbery poo's! when we introduced the cloief drops, it was only when we read the colief drops info again realised that it must be the thickner so changed his milk back to premium which was much better although in the end he had very bad acid reflux and cause he was rushed to hospital which was thought was a fit, the doctors actually now think he had a very bad case of reflux and was in pain with it, so prescribed him domperidone and ranitidine for his problem.so i wouldnt recommend comfort with colief, my sons special care commuitiy nurse said comfort was causing problems with other thickners and recommended going back on premuim milk which is alot thinner. we tried infacol too but like yourself only worked for a short time although i believe it is a build up of infacol and doesnt work on an as and when basis.although it wasnt our sons real problem in the end 'colic' we did find colief to be th best though..... hope this helps.
