Product Details


Colief Infant Digestive Aid has been shown to help reduce colic-associated crying time caused by temporary lactose intolerance (TLI) in infants.

Lactose intolerance is a condition of one or more of the following symptoms after the ingestion of lactose or lactose-containing food substances: abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, flatulence and/or bloating. The amount of lactose that will cause symptoms varies from individual to individual, depending on: amount of lactose consumed, the degree of lactase deficiency, and the form of food substance in which the lactose is ingested.


Colief is a lactase enzyme dietary supplement that is added to infant milk ( formula or breast milk)before feeding
Colief is safe, contains natural ingredients and is not a medication.
The active ingredient in Colief is lactase,a safe and natural occurring enzyme that aids in the digestion of lactose (milk sugar) which is produced within the small intestine.

Transient lactose intolerance (TLI) may soothe a infant by adding lactase to baby’s milk enabling digestion of lactose and continued breast feeding.

Colief is added to infant or breast milk. Do not give Colief drops directly to baby.
Colief works best in warm milk (body temperature).
Do not add Colief to expressed breast milk and/or infant formula that is too hot or too cold.

Proper Handling and Storage of Breast Milk
By following safe preparation and storage techniques, nursing mothers and caretakers of breastfed infants and children can maintain the high quality of expressed breast milk and the health of the baby.

Safely Preparing and Storing Expressed Breast Milk
Be sure to wash your hands before expressing or handling breast milk.
When collecting milk, be sure to store it in clean containers, such as screw cap bottles, hard plastic cups with tight caps, or heavy-duty bags that fit directly into nursery bottles. Avoid using ordinary plastic storage bags or formula bottle bags, as these could easily leak or spill.

If delivering breast milk to a child care provider, clearly label the container with the child’s name and date.
Clearly label the milk with the date it was expressed to facilitate using the oldest milk first.
Do not add fresh milk to already frozen milk within a storage container. It is best not to mix the two.
Do not save milk from a used bottle for use at another feeding.

Safely Thawing Breast Milk
As time permits, thaw frozen breast milk by transferring it to the refrigerator for thawing or by swirling it in a bowl of warm water.
Avoid using a microwave oven to thaw or heat bottles of breast milk
Microwave ovens do not heat liquids evenly. Uneven heating could easily scald a baby or damage the milk
Bottles may explode if left in the microwave too long.
Excess heat can destroy the nutrient quality of the expressed milk.
Do not re-freeze breast milk once it has been thawed.
