Description

What is Colief?

The active ingredient in Colief Infant Drops is lactase, an enzyme which occurs naturally within the body.

What is Lactase?

Milk, dairy products, infant formulas and breast milk all contain a complex sugar called lactose.  Lactase is the enzyme our bodies normally produce to break down lactose into the simpler sugars, glucose ad galactose, so that we can absorb it.

Undigested Lactose

Transient Lactase Deficiency can result in the temporary digestive discomfort caused by undigested lactose in food.  This can be an important factor in some babies with colic.  As your baby's digestive system matures at around 3 months, you should be able to gradually withdraw Colief Infant Drops from use.

What does Colief do?

Colief works by breaking down most of the lactose in your baby's usual milk before the baby is fed, making the feed more easily digestible. Studies have shown that the hours of crying may be greatly reduced when babies are fed their usual milk treated with Colief Infant Drops.

Directions

When can Colief be used?

You can use Colief Infant Drops every time you feed your baby until the baby is approx. 3-4 months old.  You should then be able to withdraw Colief gradually from use, ie; firstly by halving the drops used per feed, then by using Colief Infant Drops only at alternative feeds, then t only one feed a day before complete withdrawal.  If at any stage the signs of discomfort return, revert to previous dosage level.
