Care Co-Lactase Infant Drops 10ml

Description

NICE Guidelines and the NHS Choices Website both suggest that although the cause or causes of infantile colic are unknown, in some cases transient intolerance to lactose may be responsible. Both bodies also advise that if parents feel unable to cope despite advice and reassurance, treatment with lactose drops may be appropriate. Lactose is a complex sugar found in milk, dairy products, infant formulas and breast milk. Lactase is the enzyme usually produced by our bodies to break down lactose into more simple sugars so our bodies can absorb it. The immature digestive system of babies can have trouble breaking down the lactose in milk into more simple sugars. 

Sugar Free Lactase enzyme drops for adding to both breast milk and infant formula

The World Health Authority recommends that where possible, all babies should be exclusively breast fed for the first 6 months of life. Some infant formulas already have lactose-free options but for many mothers that won’t be much help. Care Co-Lactase Infant Drops can be used for babies who are being breast-fed and also those being given infant formula – without interfering with the feeding process. 

Suitable from birth

Care Co-lactase Infant Drops can be taken from birth onwards and should be used for as long as it takes the baby to grow out of its lactase deficiency – usually three or four months. Care Co-Lactase is sugar free, preservative free and flavour free.

Directions

Breast-feeding: After expressing a few tablespoons of breast milk into a sterilised container, 4 drops of Care Co-Lactase are added. This should be given to baby on a sterilised plastic spoon or syringe. Breast-feeding can then continue as normal. 

Infant formula: 4 drops of Care Co-Lactase should be added to the made-up feed/ready-to-feed formula when warm (not when hot). The formula should then be shaken and feeding can proceed as normal. 

Making formula in advance: 2 drops of Care Co-Lactase are added to the warm, made up formula. This is stored in the refrigerator for a minimum of 4 hours and should be used within 12 hours. It should be warmed to usual feeding temperature before use.
