Ease colic with Colief Infant Drops

Colief Infant Drops

It’s upsetting for you and your baby when he shows signs of colic, but thankfully Colief® Infant Drops offer effective relief.

We know how distressing it can be when your baby cries because of colic. Add in all those sleepless nights and it can sometimes feel like you have nowhere to turn to for help.

Colic can be caused by a temporary sensitivity to lactose, the sugar found in milk, and is common as your baby’s digestive system develops. It can be easily treated by Colief® Infant Drops, which contain lactase, a naturally occurring enzyme that helps relieve the symptoms of colic by breaking down the lactose in the milk, making it easier to digest.

Simply add the drops to your baby’s feeds, either in expressed breast milk or formula, 30 minutes before he has his milk, to allow time for the lactase to break down the lactose. It’s important to wait 30 minutes.

If your baby feeds before this, only a small amount of the lactose will be broken down, which reduces the effectiveness of the treatment.

With 20 years’ of experience, the experts at Colief know that all babies are different and not every case of colic is caused by temporary lactose intolerance. You can try a one-week trial of Colief Infant Drops to help diagnose whether lactose could be what’s causing the problem for your little one.

You can also find extra help from the Colief Expert Panel and the Ask Colief section at
