What are Lacteeze Infant Drops used for?

The arrival of a newborn is a joyous occasion, but for many parents, the presence of colic can create a challenging and emotionally taxing experience. The persistent crying, fussiness, and discomfort associated with colic often leave parents searching for gentle and effective solutions. Enter Lacteeze Infant Drops, a specially formulated remedy designed to ease colic symptoms by addressing potential lactose intolerance symptoms. In this article, we delve into the connection between an immature digestive system in babies and colic, and how Lacteeze Infant Drops can offer relief.

What is Colic? 

Colic is a mysterious condition that affects many infants, typically starting around the second week of life and often resolving by the fourth month. Colic is diagnosed by symptoms, it is not a medical condition with a specific cause. There may be several causes of colic and clinical trials have shown that developmental lactose intolerance or transient lactose intolerance is a common cause, impacting 40% of babies medically diagnosed with colic. This is termed “colic associated with lactose intolerance”.

Many babies are born with digestive systems that are still developing and adapting to the outside world. The immaturity of their gastrointestinal tract can lead to difficulties in digesting certain components of breast milk or formula, potentially triggering colic associated with lactose intolerance. The complex interplay of factors like gas production, gut microbiota development, and enzyme production can contribute to the discomfort experienced by infants during colic episodes.

Lactose, the complex sugar found in milk, formula and breast milk requires the enzyme lactase for proper digestion. In some cases, babies do not produce sufficient amounts of lactase, leading to lactose intolerance – the inability to fully digest lactose in dairy. This lactose sensitivity can manifest as gas, bloating, abdominal discomfort and excessive crying, which are classic symptoms of colic. Studies have shown up to 40% of babies medically diagnosed with colic actually suffer from transient lactase intolerance or otherwise known as Developmental lactose intolerance.

Lacteeze Infant Drops come into play by reducing the amount of lactose in babies’ feeds by converting it into simple sugars that babies can easily digest. Studies show that this can reduce symptoms associated with lactose intolerance considerably, particularly reducing crying time in babies whose colic is associated with transient lactose intolerance by a staggering 45%!

How do you use Lacteeze Infant Drops?
