Infacol is simethicone. There are no known interactions between these two medications. Good luck to you. Colic is tough to deal with it. But remember, it does eventually pass.

Colds+breastfeeding: Avoid taking decongestants such as pseudoephedrine (the D component in combo antihistamine-decongestant) as that will decrease breast milk production. Antihistamines such as zyrtec, allegra or claritin are fine. Your body is creating antibodies against the cold which will be excreted into the breastmilk. Your baby may end up with a cold but no need to stop breastfeeding. ...Read more
