Some infants have difficulty digesting lactose in breast milk or infant formula. This is called temporary lactose intolerance (TLI). TLI may cause bloating, gas and abdominal pain, which in turn may cause excessive crying, also known as colic. Adding Colief to a baby’s formula or breast milk may help reduce excessive crying time when temporary lactose intolerance (TLI) is the cause of infant colic†.
Problems of “colic” – when healthy infants cry excessively and are extremely fussy and difficult to soothe — often start several weeks after birth, peak at around six weeks, and last for about three or four months. In this moving video, new mom Amy Deel shares her desperation dealing with daughter Julia who had colic.

Colief Infant Digestive Aid is a gluten-free dietary supplement for the reduction of colic-associated crying resulting from temporary lactose intolerance (TLI) in infants.
Colief Infant Digestive Aid may help reduce the crying time associated with colic by breaking down the lactose in breast milk or infant formula, making it easier for infants to digest.
Different from other colic solutions, Colief Infant Digestive Aid is not given directly to the baby, but added to the formula or breast milk before each feeding, making it easier for them to digest the milk by breaking down most of the lactose.
The key ingredient in Colief Infant Digestive Aid is lactase, which is an enzyme that occurs naturally within our bodies. Lactase helps break down the lactose, or milk sugar, in infant formula or breast milk. Some babies may have a temporary inability to completely digest the lactose in milk (formula or breast), which is called “temporary lactose intolerance,” and may contribute to the cause of colic-associated crying. As a baby’s digestive system matures, TLI may resolve in 3-4 months.
Studies have shown that excessive crying associated with temporary lactose intolerance (TLI) may be reduced by up to 40%, when baby’s milk is treated with Colief Infant Digestive Aid.

Did you know that some healthy infants have difficulty digesting lactose in breast milk or infant formula? This is called temporary lactose intolerance – or TLI — which can cause excessive fussiness, tummy discomfort, gassiness and crying, also known as colic. Studies have shown that the hours of crying associated with TLI may be reduced when a baby’s usual milk is treated before feedings with Colief Infant Digestive Aid.
