Description

For the first few months of life some babies may have difficulty in fully digesting the lactose in milk. This can be an important factor in some babies with colic. Colief® Infant Drops helps to break down the lactose in a baby’s usual milk (breast milk or infant formula) before the baby is fed, making the milk more easily digestible.
Ingredients: Glycerol, Aqueous Lactase Enzyme.
Directions:
Breastfeeding- Express a few tablespoons of breast milk into a sterilised container.Add 4 drops of Colief Infant Drops.Give this to your infant on a sterilised spoon before initiating breastfeeding. Breast feed as normal.

When you commence feeding your baby milk treated with Colief you may notice a change in the stool pattern. This may resemble the stools of a breastfed baby, i.e. looser and more frequent. In these circumstances you may wish to reduce the drops used per feed. If you have any concerns regarding your baby’s health you should seek professional medical advice.By four months old, a baby’s digestive system should have developed sufficiently to be able to digest their feeds properly. Parents can start to wean their babies off Colief, firstly by halving the drops per feed, then using at alternative feeds, then using for just one feed per day before complete removal. If at any stage the signs of discomfort return, revert to previous dosage level.
