Feedback from Sleep Store customers is that Rhuger Mixture can be very helpful for babies suffering from wind, and that it makes it easier to burp your baby. It is also useful for babies who become constipated once they start on solids, which can otherwise cause settling issues.
"An effective alternative pharmaceutical treatment for infantile colic, and associated feeding difficulties in babies"
A remedy re-discovered
During the early 1980’s, it was discovered that the widely used silicone based products may have some problems associated with their use in infants. In some premature babies, these products could be contraindicated. Rhuger Drops contain no silicone.
It is most important to follow the dosage instructions for the new Rhuger formulation - the dose must be given with warm water.
"My girl has terrible wind due to a high palate and not being able to feed without getting a belly full of air. I tried ALL the other drops and would spend hours trying to get the wind out so she could sleep only to lay her in bed and have her scream and need to be burped again. I tried the Rhuger when she was 8 weeks and found it worked but gave her a sore stomach. Tried again at 4 months and i LOVE it. Wouldn’t be without it. A few squirts before bath time and relaxing in the bath gets rid of all the wind and baby sleeps 11 hours at night. Happy baby = Happy Mummy"

Erin says ...
"I used Rhuger drops for my son as he had reflux. I had tried other wind medications without success, but felt that using Rhuger alongside other measures such as feeding him in a sitting position, keeping him upright after feeds, tilting his cot and sleeping him on his side we were able to keep it manageable. Eventually we were able to reduce the dose down the dose until after 6 months he no longer needed it!"
Midwest Pharmaceutics manufacturer based at Hastings in New Zealand manufactures Rhuger Mixture for Rhuger Products Limited a company owned by Dunedin Pharmacist Ian Waters.
- Useful for:
- Babies with difficulty in winding
- Slow difficult feeding babies, spilling, reflux
- Constipation when introducing solids
The formulation is a mixture containing the herbal liquid extracts of Rhubarb Root ( rhei pulv) and Ginger Rhizome ( Zingiber Officianale), with Magnesium Carbonate (mag.Carb.lev) in a natural glycerol base.
No preservative, sugar or alcohol or artificial additives are used in the manufacturing process. The alcohol (ethanol ) present , residual from the liquid extracts used is below the 0.1% level required by ANZA to be printed on the label.
The formulation prior to September 2014 contained Methylcellulose and the preservative paraben ( methyl & propyl benzoate), these have been removed and the mixture substrate has been restructured without artificial additives or preservatives.
The shelf life has been extended as a result of the stability enhancement and the use of the reformulated Rhuger mixture substrate.
