    • Dear Lorna, Sorry to learn your baby suffers from Colic. The garlic jam would certainly help you but I cannot guarantee it would cure your baby’s colic. Moreover, if somebody can make the garlic for you that would be great as it would be quite a tedious process for a new mother.

      Some of the following may help provide some relief to your baby. Put your baby to sleep on his/her tummy. Give Gripe-water or Balkadu syrup twice a day, ideally morning after bath and night before bed. I have three children all adults now, one of my children was prescibed Piptal drops for colic which had to be given half hour before a feed and another of my children was prescribed arrowroot kanji to be given mixed with formula i.e. you make a light kanji of arrowroot powder and use half kanji and half water to the formula for each feed. These two were used till the problem lasted and both were prescribed by Paediatricians (one in Kuwait and the other in India) and would recommend you consult for your baby’s specific problem if the gripe-water etc does not work. Having said that, colic is very common in new born babies
      and hope you are able to find a solution soon. I can imagine how difficult it must be for you. Do write if you require any further assistance.

    • Dec 31, 2016 : Thank you for viewing my blog and for your query.
      At room temperature it has a shelf-life of about 2 to 3 days in a cool place. I usually bottle it in a glass jar when it has cooled down.
      In the refrigerator it can be stored for 2 to 4 weeks.
      Serving size is approx. one tablespoon, served warm.
      Hope this answers your query.
