Did you know that in this year alone 1 in 5 babies will experience Colic?

What is colic you may ask?

Colic is defined as repeated episodes of excessive and inconsolable crying in a newborn that is in otherwise perfect health. An infant who cries for a total of three hours per day, more than three days in any one week for three weeks in a row is more than likely experiencing colic.  Colic tends to set in around the second week of infancy and can last straight through to the third month of infancy. Recent research has shown that 38% of colic cases can be attributed to gas, bloating and discomfort from a temporary lactose intolerance known as transient lactase deficiency.

My son suffered from a bad case of colic and severe Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). His symptoms lingered until almost 9 months of age. We tried the process of elimination by modifying my diet. We tried many different forms of colic infant drops and gripe water. Nothing seemed to work. The one thing I refused to give up on was breastfeeding.

Recently I was introduced to Colief Infant Drops.

Colief Infant Drops are a safe, all-natural and gluten free dietary supplement that is meant to be used for the reduction of colic-associated crying resulting from transient lactase deficiency. Colief contains three ingredients: glycerol, water and lactase enzyme. Lactase being the key ingredient in Colief. Lactase is an enzyme that occurs naturally within our bodies. Lactase helps to break down the lactose or sugar, which can commonly be found in infant formula or breast milk. Some infants experience a temporary inability to digest lactose. This condition is what we refer to as transient lactase deficiency. Transient Lactase Deficiency is often a common culprit that causes colic.

Each box of Colief Infant Drops provides 90 servings.

What makes Colief such a great product for relieving symptoms of Colic?

  • The lactase enzyme is delivered through the baby’s milk, vs. given directly to the infant; nursing moms express a little milk, add Colief, then nurse as normal. Bottle feeding moms, just add a few drop of Colief to each bottle per package instructions.

  • Colief acts as a first step in solving the colic mystery, helping to identify if transient lactase deficiency is the cause of colic without mom having to change her diet, switch to formula, etc. Within 48 hours of trying Colief, fussiness and crying time should be reduced by 45% if caused by transient lactase deficiency.

  • Colief is A Mommy MD Guide Recommended and Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA) product

Colief Infant Drops is definitely one product I will keep in the back of my mind when my wee bundle joins our family in March.

    One of our three children had colic – man, was it tough to get him to settle. It lasted for about six months. Love him to bits, but those first months were brutal! Wouldn’t wish it on anyone!
