Does Colief help with colic/silent reflux??

She wasn’t a mass of help tbh and I’m more confused than I was. The content of this web site is offered only for general information purposes. The web site and content are not offered or intended as a replacement for professional advice.If your baby’s crying persists or if you have any concerns regarding your baby’s health or wellbeing, you should seek professional medical advice without delay. Colief® was tested at Cork University Hospital, Ireland, by Professor Kearney in the early 1990s to demonstrate that a lactose-reduced feed was effective in reducing infant colic. His results were presented to the Royal College of Pediatricians at its annual meeting in spring 1994 and published in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics in September 1998.

Work on the causes of the reflux if you can, rather than medicating it away. Reflux medications alter pH of the GI tract, and make digesting and absorbing food harder. They also shift your baby’s gut micro-biome away from ideal species of bacteria that help the immune system “learn”, protect from viruses, and digest food.

then We started again with frisolac , on which he was before novalac. nothing changed , constipation was still there. We went to doctor he gave frisolac comfort formula for colic, refulx and hard stools.


Instead, reflux medicines favor fungal microbes and detrimental bacteria such as klebsiella or clostridia. These microbes produce toxins of their own that further alter the gut’s pH. They can injure the gut wall, and circulate to your baby’s brain to alter behavior or even trigger seizures. It’s November 2017 and I’ve got a 6 week old baby boy, who has been diagnosed with reflux. It’s been a difficult few weeks.

Warm the formula, add 4 drops of Colief® to the warm (not hot) formula. Wait 30 minutes, shaking the formula occasionally, then feed the baby as normal, making sure the formula is at the correct temperature.

Babies with colic often respond well to being held. Being close to you is comforting.

This is safer. If you and your daughter have followed the vaccination schedule so far, this may disrupt her feeding and eliminating.

Silent Reflux is often missed by so many, as it does exactly what it says on the tin…it is silent. That does not mean the baby, the baby is often screaming in pain and massively uncomfortable, but often if you do not know the symptoms, it can go totally missed for a long period of time. Reflux occurs when the stomach acid travels back up the oesophagus, causing pain, burning and sometimes causing the milk/stomach acid to mix to go into the mouth.

This would be helpful to assess. Conventional MDs poo poo (no pun intended!) this test, often used by functional medicine practitioners.

Wind & reflux remedies

If your baby had no gas or other issues while not moving his bowels more than once a week, that might be fine. But all these things together are in my opinion not good. Your baby can be more comfortable, without gas, reflux, or constipation.

Reflux, or gastro-oesophageal reflux, is a common problem in babies, especially premature babies. Reflux occurs when some of the partly digested milk or food in the stomach comes back up into the food pipe (oesophagus) and sometimes into the mouth. As the stomach contains acid that helps to digest food, the acidity can cause some discomfort and burning sensations within the food pipe. This can be painful for babies and they may become irritable during and after feeding times. Infant Drops can help a parent identify if a temporary sensitivity to lactose is the cause of their baby’s colic symptoms.

the belly issues are ongoing. fussing at the breast, pulling away, seeming to need feeding constantly, then eating too much and vomitting it all up, writhing around in discomfort before a big burst of wind or poop, dry stringy greenish coloured poop sometimes and then explosive diarroahea, wet burps and hiccups. The abrupt change is curious – what happened three weeks ago? Was your daughter vaccinated, or given a new antibiotic or other medicine?

I don’t think there is a baby that doesn’t suffer from this at one point wether it be for short burst or long term. My first grew out of it pretty quick. My second didn’t he had bad vomiting right up until her was way over a yearbook but it never affected his sleep.

Lactase is the enzyme our bodies need to produce to break down the lactose in milk and dairy products into the simple sugars (monosaccharides) glucose and galactose. These can then be absorbed as part of the normal digestive process. Otherwise after setting up some good sleep habits, and allowing your baby to learn to settle themselves, most sleep problems are erased within days if not weeks depending on the sort of route you choose to follow (cry/no-cry approach).
