Crying Baby? Help With Colic

 

Help ease colic symptoms with Colief

​Infant colic can have many causes. In some cases, it is caused by temporary lactose intolerance. This is when babies are unable to fully break down lactose, a complex sugar in breast milk and infant formula. This can cause discomfort commonly known as colic and characterised by lengthy periods of distressed crying. Suitable from birth, Colief Infant Drops are completely natural and help break down lactose into simpler sugars, glucose and galactose, making it easier for your baby to digest their feeds and reducing their discomfort.

Trusted by mums and recommended by healthcare professionals for over twenty years, Colief Infant Drops contains lactase enzyme and can be used every time you feed your baby, either in expressed breast milk or infant formula. At around three to four months a baby’s digestive system will naturally cope better with lactose and usually symptoms will disappear. However, if symptoms persist you can continue to use Colief Infant Drops for as long as it is needed.

What is Colic?

Colic is defined as repeated episodes of excessive and inconsolable crying in a new-born baby who otherwise appears to be perfectly healthy. The condition can affect up to one in five babies, so you’re not alone.

Symptoms Of Colic

3+ hours of crying

Drawing up of the knees

Arched back

Flushed cheeks

Inconsolable

Could It Be Something Else?

Other conditions can cause excessive crying, such as constipation and gastro-oesophageal reflux (GORD). If your baby has other symptoms, such as blood in the stools and vomiting, speak to your GP.

Top Tips For Dealing With Colic

1. Although it is distressing, the most important thing to remember if your baby is affected by colic is to remain calm.

2. Introduce a soothing routine around the time of the day when your baby’s colic is usually at its worst, this is typically in the evenings.

3. Keep a log of the times when your baby’s colic is at its worst – you may be able to find a pattern associated with any triggers, allowing you to understand better how to ease the symptoms.

4. Try a one-week trial of Colief Infant Drops to help diagnose whether temporary lactose intolerance could be the cause of your baby’s colic symptoms.
