Colief Infant Drops - 7ml

Colief® Infant Drops is formulated to help give you and your baby relief from Transient Lactase Deficiency.


Colief Infant Drops - 7ml

Colief® Infant Drops is formulated to help give you and your baby relief from Transient Lactase Deficiency.

Colief contains lactase, an enzyme naturally occurring in our bodies that helps break down complex sugar lactose found in milk, dairy products, breast milk and infant formulas.

The immature digestive system of babies can have trouble breaking down lactose into more simple sugars causing discomfort commonly known as colic and characterised by lengthy periods of distressed crying in an infant aged under four months.

The technical name for this is Transient Lactase Deficiency. Colief® Infant Drops can help the body break down the lactose into simpler sugars, glucose and galactose, making it easier for your baby to digest their feeds.

Studies have shown that the hours of crying may be greatly reduced when babies are fed their usual milk treated with Colief® Infant Drops.

The drops can be used every time you feed your baby. At around three to four months old a baby's digestive system will naturally cope better with lactose and usually symptoms will disappear. However, if symptoms persist you can use Colief® Infant Drops.

Colief contains an enzyme which is destroyed by heat so for best results use Colief between room temperature and body-heat, which is neither too hot nor too cold. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully when making-up formula milk.

If your baby's crying persists or if you have any concerns regarding your baby's health or wellbeing, you should seek professional medical advice without delay.

How to Use Colief

Colief® is safe to use with babies from birth. It can be used whether a baby is breast or formula-fed. Always follow the instructions to make sure Colief® Infant Drops have the best chance of helping you and your baby.

  • Discard any unused formula.


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.

Colief® is an enzyme and is destroyed by heat. It works best in warm milk. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully when making-up formula milk. Do not add Colief® to milk that is too hot or too cold.

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.
