Colief Infant Drops
“My baby cried so much. I felt that as a physician I should have known better what to do,” says Arleen K. Lamba, MD, a mom of one son, an anesthesiologist, the medical director of Blush Med Institute, and founder of the Blush Blends Skin Care line, in Washington DC. “I tried several products, and nothing helped. Then I heard about Colief Infant Drops.
“I added four drops of Colief to some breast milk. It was life-changing. It worked very effectively, and my baby stopped crying so much. He’s a completely different baby now!”
Colief Infant Drops is an all-natural and gluten-free dietary supplement for the reduction of colic-associated crying resulting from Transient Lactase Deficiency (TLD), which occurs in approximately 40 percent of infants up to age four months. TLD is a temporary lactose intolerance in young infants that causes discomfort and excessive crying. The solution for TLD is simple, replace some of the lactase enzyme and reduce crying time. The key ingredient in Colief Infant Drops is lactase, which is an enzyme that occurs naturally within our bodies and helps break down the lactose, or sugar, in milk-based infant formula or breast milk. Some babies have a temporary inability to completely digest the lactose in breast milk and milk-based formula. Colief replaces 70 percent of the lactase enzyme, giving baby the opportunity to develop their own ability to produce lactase enzyme naturally as they mature. Colief has been clinically proven to reduce colic-associated crying time by up to 45 percent, when caused by TLD.
You add Colief Infant Drops to either breast milk or milk-based formula before it is fed to the baby, which allows moms to preserve their feeding choice and avoid the usual trial and error experimentation traditionally associated with reducing colic related crying. Within 72 hours of use, parents should know if their infant’s colic is due to TLD, because they will see a reduction in crying.
