Thanks for the replies.

I will speak to the nurse when I take my little one for the 6 week check up and see what she suggests. I will also speak to the pead at the 6 week check up and see what he suggests and then take it from there.

Will try the Nan first (seen as though i have a tin at home) see how that goes otherwise will try lactogen.
(im busy breastfeeding now and my baby has cramps already...... so I really want to make sure i put her on one that won't give more cramps when we go onto the formula.)

Thanks again!

Hi there Monic@R

If you have the time, go read up on colief. Here is the link :

Colief® Infant Drops is formulated to help give you and your baby relief from colic.

Colief contains lactase, an enzyme naturally occurring in our bodies that helps break down complex sugar lactose found in milk, dairy products, breast milk and infant formulas.

The immature digestive system of babies can have trouble breaking down lactose into more simple sugars causing discomfort commonly known as colic and characterised by lengthy periods of distressed crying in an infant aged under four months.

The technical name for this is Transient Lactase Deficiency. Colief® Infant Drops can help the body break down the lactose into simpler sugars, glucose and galactose, making it easier for your baby to digest their feeds.

Studies have shown that the hours of crying may be greatly reduced when babies are fed their usual milk treated with Colief® Infant Drops.

The drops can be used every time you feed your baby. At around three to four months old a baby's digestive system will naturally cope better with lactose and usually symptoms will disappear. However, if symptoms persist you can use Colief® Infant Drops.

Colief contains an enzyme which is destroyed by heat so for best results use Colief between room temperature and body-heat, which is neither too hot nor too cold. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully when making-up formula milk.

A one-week trial of Colief Infant Drops can help a parent identify if Transient Lactase Deficiency is the cause of their baby's colic symptoms. If the baby shows no signs of improvement after a week, it can be ruled out as the cause and other issues can then be investigated.

Go read the website & maybe give it ago. You can get it @ Dischem, Clicks, Baby City & Pick 'n Pay pharmacies.

Good luck & pls keep us updated!!!!!!!! :-)
You can also use it while bf. You just have to express some milk to give it to her.
