It’s that time of the year again where we say goodbye (or perhaps a sigh of relief!) to the summer holidays and see our little ones return to school for the new academic year, or for some of you it might be your child’s first day at school. If you’re feeling nervous or unprepared –
Help with colic
Colic is defined as repeated episodes of excessive and inconsolable crying in a new-born baby who otherwise appears to be perfectly healthy. The condition can affect up to one in five babies, so you’re not alone.
Infant colic can have many causes. In some cases it is believed to be caused by temporary lactose intolerance. This is because in the first months of life, some babies are unable to fully break down lactose, a complex sugar in breast and formula milk. It can produce wind, bloating and cause discomfort, and one of the main symptoms is inconsolable crying.
Colds and sniffles?
Children commonly suffer from colds because their immune system is still developing. Eucalyptus oil is one of the best natural remedies for congestion, as it has an anti-inflammatory effect on the airways, relieving the blocked or runny noses experienced by many children. Containing eucalyptus, peppermint and lemon and suitable for children aged 3+ years Colief Breathe Easy Patch is a gentle decongestant patch which can be worn on clothing or bedding to offer a comfortable solution for easy breathing. New to the range Colief Breathe Easy Vapour Rub is a gentle and safe decongestant for babies aged 3+ months. Available in a convenient stick format Colief Breathe Easy Vapour Rub contains a unique formulation of natural ingredients including eucalyptus and menthol.
Dry or flaky scalp?
Cradle Cap Care
Babies are known for their super-soft skin, but they can often develop dry or flaky scalps, particularly in their first year. While cradle cap rarely troubles your baby and may clear up on its own, most parents look for gentle solutions to treat it. Made with nourishing rosehip oil, healing chamomile and vitamin E to protect, Colief Baby Scalp Oil moisturises and soothes your baby’s skin and scalp – naturally soothing the symptoms of cradle cap. It is suitable for use on infants from birth (from full term date).
Daily Vitamin D
Having too little vitamin D can be detrimental to the absorption of calcium and phosphorous in the body. This can lead to bone deformities such as rickets in children, and bone pain and tenderness as a result of a condition called osteomalacia in adults. Some people get enough vitamin D through exposure to sunlight, but 30−40% of people in the UK are deficient in winter. Colief Vitamin D3 Drops is a natural food supplement providing the reassurance that both you and your baby are getting the right amount of vitamin D, vital for developing strong teeth and bones and a healthy immune system.
Daily Immune Boost
Vitamin C Drops
When it comes to supporting the general health of young children, Vitamin C plays an important role. Suitable for all the family, Colief® Vitamin C Drops is a food supplement rich in vitamin C and is free from artificial flavours, artificial colours or preservatives.
In addition to supporting the immune system and the absorption of iron, Vitamin C also helps with collagen production, which is needed for the formation of blood vessels, bones, cartilage, gums, skin and teeth. All important for the development of young children.
