The colief drops contain the natural enzyme lactase, which breaks down the lactose in the milk by up to 70 percent, making it more easily digestible.
Colic is a common, but temporary, condition which causes excessive crying in an otherwise healthy baby. The exact causes of colic are unknown, but it’s thought that it can be caused by milk sensitivity. This is because in the first months of life, some babies are unable to break down lactose, a complex sugar in breast and formula milk. This is called temporary lactase intolerance.
It can cause wind, bloating and discomfort, and one of the main symptoms is inconsolable crying. The condition affects up to one in five babies and although the crying is not harmful, it can be incredibly distressing for parents.
