Colief® offers a range of gentle products that provide soothing comfort to babies, children and new mothers. Colief’s scientific knowledge and proven expertise in colic caused by temporary lactose intolerance informed the development of Colief Infant Drops two decades ago. Now, the brand offers an extended mum and baby care range.
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 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.
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.
