We look at Colief Infant Drops and break down how it works!
For your baby to grow well, healthy digestion of their feed is crucial. But whether you’re feeding your little one breast milk or infant formula, lactose intolerance can sometimes cause discomfort. We wouldn’t want that! So, we’re looking to Colief Infant Drops to ease the symptoms.
An established formula
The original lactase enzyme, Colief Infant Drops have been on the market for over two decades. This is an established brand from the UK, with the Infant Drops being trusted by mums and – most importantly – recommended by healthcare professionals.
How does it work?
The active ingredient in the clinically-proven formula is lactase. This is a naturally occurring enzyme that is produced in the small intestine. At the start of their development, babies may not produce enough lactase enzymes on their own – hence the discomfort after feeding! Thankfully, you can add Colief Infant Drops to breast milk or infant formula, to help break down lactose into simpler sugars like glucose and galactose. This does the digestive heavy work for bubs, making it easier to digest their milk.
What age group is it suitable for?
Colief Infant Drops are safe from birth, even for preemies! You can use them at every feeding sesh until your little one is around three to four months old. After which, your baby’s body should be able to produce enough lactase on its own. Make the transition gradual: slowly decrease the amount of Colief Infant Drops added to each feed until your little one doesn’t need it anymore.
But what if my little one still has symptoms of lactose intolerance, you ask? Fret not: the experts at Colief say that you can continue to use the Infant Drops for as long as necessary.
