Colic, or persistent unexplained crying in infants, is commonly encountered by health professionals. While not harmful to the child, it can place a great deal of stress on the parents and family. The cause of colic has not been definitively identified. Transient lactose intolerance, as a result of inadequate production of the enzyme lactase, is one possibility. Studies have shown a reduced crying time when formula or breast milk is incubated with lactase. Colief Infant Drops consist of lactase in a glycerol and water solution which, when added to formula or breast milk, converts lactose to simple sugars and makes the feed more easily digestible.
