How To Identify And Treat Colic

Have you tried just about every trick in the book to console your baby, but they’re still crying? They could be suffering from Colic, which is a very common condition that can cause your baby to cry for no apparent reason. 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 caused by temporary lactose intolerance. This is when babies are unable to fully break down lactose, a complex sugar in breast milk and infant formula. This can cause discomfort commonly known as colic and characterised by lengthy periods of distressed crying. Suitable from birth, Colief Infant Drops are completely natural and help break down lactose into simpler sugars, glucose and galactose, making it easier for your baby to digest their feeds and reducing their discomfort.

Top Tips For Dealing With Colic

  1. Although it is distressing, the most important thing to remember if your baby is affected by colic is to remain calm.
  2. Introduce a soothing routine around the time of the day when your baby’s colic is usually at its worst, this is typically in the evenings.
  3. Keep a log of the times when your baby’s colic is at its worst – you may be able to find a pattern associated with any triggers, allowing you to understand better how to ease the symptoms.
  4. Try a one-week trial of Colief Infant Drops to help diagnose whether temporary lactose intolerance could be the cause of your baby’s colic symptoms.
