Transient Lactase Deficiency in Infants and Babies

Thursday, 11 July 2013 08:48:18 Europe/London

Colic—the word that parents dread and has healthcare professionals perplexed. Intense crying, no sleep, and often resulting in a feeling of helplessness, society strives to find an answer for what causes colic, and how we can help stop it.

A common theory of what causes colic is general pain in a baby’s developing stomach. Colic is defined as “severe, often fluctuating pain in the abdomen caused by intestinal gas or obstruction in the intestines and suffered esp. by babies.” But what causes that pain? That’s the golden answer which practitioners in the medical field are striving to find out.

One possible cause of colic in some babies is a condition called transient lactase deficiency (TLD). When one is lactose intolerant, they have the inability to digest lactose, which is found in dairy products. Specifically, they lack an enzyme called lactase in the small intestine—it’s that enzyme which is needed to digest lactose. Though being lactose intolerant is fairly common among adults, it’s not seen very often in babies since by definition a baby's diet consists primarily of breastmilk. Nature has evolved most babies to produce adequate levels of lactase. When the condition does show up in newborns, it’s called transient lactase deficiency, because it is only temporary. Those infants that do lack the lactase enzyme will usually start producing it around four months of age.

The abdominal pain which the infant with TLD feels (and thus, causes the intense crying) is because the infant can not break down the lactose sugar which is found in breast or cow’s milk. The lactase enzyme is what’s needed to do this. As a result, “the undigested sugar will ferment and create lactic acid and hydrogen gas, which can contribute to colicky symptoms."

Because lactase production increases in the third trimester, pre-term infants are more likely to have TLD than full-term infants. Studies show that few infants born at 28 weeks' gestation have insufficient intestinal lactase activity, whereas about 40% of infants born at 34 weeks' gestation demonstrate significant intestinal lactase activity.

While a parent is waiting for the production of the lactase to kick in, there is a remedy that can help soothe baby - Colic Calm. An all natural and homeopathic solution for colic, Colic Calm has been proven to help. Colic Calm’s unique blend of nine natural ingredients stops colic, infant reflux, gas and teething pains. So while you’re waiting for your baby’s production of lactase, Colic Calm will eliminate any pain that they are experiencing.

And most importantly, hang in there. As they say in parenthood, “This too, shall pass.” Make sure to carve out some time for yourself, and if the non-stop crying gets to you, walk away, take some deep breaths, and then come back to cuddle that screaming baby.

What Do a Baby’s Cries Tell Us?

Thursday, 11 July 2013 08:45:33 Europe/London

Crying BabyMaybe it is a pity that babies do not get to talk earlier, from birth say. If colic problems were to kick in at around three weeks, then we could start asking them the sort of questions with which doctors so delight in perplexing us adults:

“What is the source of your discomfort and where is it located exactly?”

“Describe the intensity of the pains – say on a scale of one to ten”

“How often do these symptoms occur?”

“Do you get them just after feeding or later?”

“Do any sorts of food particularly disagree with you?”

All useful information no doubt, but if our baby really could supply the answers, perhaps we would have cause for even greater concern.

However, nature has arranged an alternative form of communication. It is usually called ‘crying’ - or in some cases, ‘screaming’ - and is often accompanied with wild hand and leg signals, and bottling up of breath for endless seconds before a full volume screech is emitted, audible from far, far away. It has the power to command our instant and frantic attention –waking us out of the deepest sleep – and never gives up trying to tell us something. Although we all know that baby’s cries are saying: “I am in terrible pain and I want you to do something about fixing it, right now…this minute…can’t you do something for goodness sake?… Soothe this horrid thing away, can’t you? You’re my parents you should know what to do”; unfortunately it isn’t always so easy to take away “the nasty pain” as we would all like. For one baby in five the cause of the trouble will be colic. As to the best way to go about alleviating it, these are questions on which medical opinion has still yet to agree, let alone provide a satisfactory answer.

What Parents are Saying

We LOVE Colic Calm. I don't know how we would have survived our child's first months of life without it. Whenever he is really fussy and nothing will calm him down, we just give him a dose of Colic Calm, followed by his pacifier, and he immediately calms down. It is an extra blessing on car rides! Thank you so much for developing this product and saving my sanity! (My baby thanks you too!)

Jennifer C. Groveland, FL

I just wanted to let you know that this product is worth every penny. In fact, I would pay a whole lot more for the relief my daughter got from even her first dose. After 15 minutes, she was completely calm and stayed that way!!! It is truly a miracle cure. Best of all, she
loves the taste!!!! You don't know how grateful I am to your company. I will recommend this to everyone I know.

Tony Z. Natrona Heights, PA

Colic Calm is Liquid Gold in my eyes. That's why I bought 2 more bottles. When we ran out - it was very tough those days that I didn't have the Colic Calm - so poor planning on my part - so I know to watch my inventory of it and will order it again before it's time!

It really does help my little son Joseph rest more easier and more soundly. He has very bad colic, and is very gassy and has very severe reflux. The Colic calm helps with all of his problems.

Thanks for a wonderful product!

Donna H. Red Lion, PA

We just love the ColicCalm Gripe Water. It has saved us many sleeplessness nights. The first day we got it our little daughter was crying and very fussy and seemed to be very uncomfortable. I gave her a full dose and within seconds she was calm and smiling. She fell asleep a few minutes after that. The first few days we had to give her several doses and now she just takes one dose a day. It has worked very well and I thank you for making such a wonderful product.

Charity W. Buffalo, MN

“There is nothing better to give your child. I tried all the “miracle cures” out there…ColicCalm is the only one that is truly natural, safe and works instantly on my 3 week old.”

Quite simply, nobody is really quite sure what causes colic or how it may be effectively treated with one hundred percent success. Perhaps, different babies experience different forms. Medical opinions over the past fifty years have often reflected the contemporary thinking of the time. The fifties and sixties saw widespread use of antibiotics and antacids to subdue possible digestive tract upsets; the seventies later favored a psychological evaluation of the relationship between mother and child, while current theories involve gastric problems such as allergies caused by formula food additives. Alternative medicine offers such techniques as belly massage, aromatherapy, chiropractic spinal manipulation, cranial osteopathy and even acupuncture.

Further back in time, colic was considered the product of excess stomach gas which could be relieved by rubbing and rocking the baby about until internal pressures were released in one colossal burp. Victorians often favored the use of “Gripe Waters” containing alcohol and powerful opiates. The novelist Charles Dickens tells of the copious use of London gin in subduing raucous infants, one shudders to think of the complications to the child further down the road of life. How attitudes do change, today getting one’s child stoned to stifle its cries would rightfully bring down the full weight of the law and the outrage of society.

Although colic is seldom the precursor of something truly life threatening, it is impossible to dismiss the very profound impact it can have on a family’s way of life. Colic can stress the structure of family relationships to the limit and put them at risk, along with the health, happiness and livelihood of distraught, sleep-starved parents. The fact that colic may be caused by all manner of intestinal problems does not make treatment any easier. It is certainly true that some babies are far “needier” than others and often resort to crying just to get attention and comfort. But although no parent finds it easy to ignore those insistent cries for help, sometimes a mother’s own distress will only serve to exacerbate the problem.

An infant can cry out loudly for many reasons: hunger, overtiredness, desire for human contact, sudden alarm at some external sound or movement, overheating or cold, or stomach pains caused by hunger, indigestion, reflux or excessive wind. Since we are unable to ask the child what is the problem is, we must make our own diagnosis and act on it. Different babies can be comforted by different means. Sometimes just moving the baby around or ‘white’ sound might do the trick, while a comforter may calm hunger pangs (imagined or otherwise), or just physical contact will reassure the infant and help soothe away the distress. Some modern all herbal gripe waters can be particularly efficacious.

Parents too can sometimes over react – what may be considered normal crying by some folks might be thought to be a case of extreme colic by others. A visit to the doctor should help reassure anxious parents as to whether their child is in fact abnormally subject to extreme colic. Details of when and how long the baby cries, eating and sleeping habits and the pattern of bowel movements can help a medical advisor reach a sound diagnosis.

It may just be that colic is just one more difficult phase of parenthood that we may have to live through - rather like teething - as our infant’s delicate internal mechanisms experience change, dealing with the problems of a rapidly growing little body constantly in contact with new and often pernicious substances and organisms. One phase constantly used by grandparents “don’t worry, dear, they grow out of it –you did” may in fact provide little consolation to stressed parents at the time, but happily in the long run usually proves true.

How to Know When Your Baby has Reflux - and What to Do About It

Thursday, 11 July 2013 08:42:11 Europe/London

Most of us have had the unpleasant experience of acid reflux at some time in our lives. Perhaps after a heavy meal we have laid down too quickly, only to be woken by an awful sensation of involuntary vomiting. Our mouth is suddenly filled with evil tasting bile as the regurgitated content of our esophagus is expelled backwards in the wrong direction. It can be an alarming moment for anyone, particularly an infant, and especially so if it becomes a regular occurrence.

What Parents are Saying

My son has both colic and reflux. He would cry and scream every night for about 3 hours straight. Nothing we could do would console and other colic medicines we tried gave him no relief. I was a little hesitant to try this one after not having success with the other remedies, but after reading the other testimonials I decided to try. It has been amazing. We give it to him as soon as his fussiness starts and within minutes he is a happy baby. I have never been a real beleiver in herbal remedies but this has changed my mind. It saved us when all else failed.

Katey P. New Market, MD

As you could probably already tell by our second order of 5 bottles, we are extremely happy with your product. Our son is 9 months and has severe acid reflux, and to make it worse, he has Dandy Walker which causes him to swallow a lot of air under almost any circumstance... from crying to eating. Over the last month, before we bought Colic Calm, we were at wits end with our son's pain. He seemed like he was more unhappy than happy everyday. Long story short, we ordered Colic Calm, and within the first 10 minutes of his first dose, he went from gut wrenching pain to a calmness we hadn't seen in so long. We LOVE your product. And, I have told all three of our son's therapists how wonderful it is. They actually wrote it down. I will also be giving one of my remaining bottles as part of a baby shower gift this weekend! I am definitely one of your biggest fans. I love that your product actually works - and quickly. I also love that it's all natural. The best way to go.

Thank you so much.

Michelle M. Nashville, TN

I have to say that this stuff is the BEST!!! My daughter has colic and acid reflux...it really works wonders on both...I think more so than her prescribed Zantac. I especially like how quickly it takes effect. I plan to be a loyal customer, as long as necessary, and to recommend it to all of my friends who are expecting. Better to be safe and have it on hand, than to be sorry. At the very least, every baby has gas!

Kelly H. Canton, OH

Thank you SO much for shipping this so quickly! Colic Calm is the only thing that helps my son's acid reflux and intestinal gas. We are leaving for the holidays this weekend and didn't realize we were almost out of Colic Calm until today. Our Christmas would have been ruined if we had to watch our son scream and writhe in pain the entire time. Thank you again for shipping this immediately...you saved our Christmas!

Sarah B. Murfreesboro, TN

ColicCalm is absolutely amazing and awesome.  I’ve told my friend with a baby with reflux to get this product asap.  I know she will be just as thankful.  Good stuff!

All babies spit up at times but it when it happens too often, then chances are your baby is suffering from acid reflux - gastro-esophageal reflux disease to give the full medical name, GERD for short. Statistical research tells us that over half of all babies experience some reflux during the first few months of life. It is a common problem that typically resolves itself by the ages of 12 – 18 months. Although most likely to occur after feeding, it can happen almost anytime your baby coughs, cries or strains. Sometimes it can be tougher on the parent than the child – most babies remain happy, hale and hearty even when covered in thrown up, semi-digested food.

If the problem persists and particularly if baby is not gaining weight normally, it may be time to change one’s feeding patterns. Smaller but more frequent feedings, changing position or interrupting feedings to allow time for burping may be all that is needed to get reflux under control. Some gripe waters have also proved extremely effective in helping to contain reflux and calming the digestive process.

What causes reflux and how to recognize it

Nature has provided its own means of preventing acid and other stomach contents from flowing back up into our throats and mouths. A valve called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) opens during normal digestion to allow food to pass into the stomach but closes after eating to prevent the stomach’s contents from escaping back up the wrong way. If for some reason the LES has a weak action or does not function at the right time, then food and stomach acid can be regurgitated back into the esophagus as earlier described. A baby spends most of the time in a horizontal position, the liquid contents of baby's diet are more likely to flow back into the esophagus. If this happens a lot then your child may be suffering from full blown GERD.

The symptoms to watch out for are: frequent and recurrent vomiting, persistent coughing at meal times, and signs of heartburn, gas or abdominal spasms. As the child moves into its second year, additional symptoms may include slowed growth rate, persistent refusal of food and a hoarse scratchy voice. Chances are the problem will resolve itself in time. But it never does any harm to consult your pediatrician who is able to perform a whole batch of diagnostic tests where deemed necessary.

Although GERD is not so difficult to spot, quite often it passes unnoticed because parents are not aware that babies can suffer from the effects of acid reflux. Although all babies spit up from time to time, it is necessary to be able to discern the difference between normal spitting up and recurring vomiting in order to arrive at a diagnosis. Once aware of its existence, there are very effective treatment plans for curing the colic caused by GERD.

It is also important to bear in mind that infants suffer from a different form of acid reflux to that occurring in children and adults where therapy may be complicated for a wide spectrum of reasons and where the patient’s physical condition and life style can play a decisive role.

Treatment for infants is usually a whole lot easier. It is generally agreed that elevating baby’s head in the cot can help prevent reflux. During and after feeding, it is also recommended the infant be kept in an upright position for about 30 minutes, again to reduce the chance of reflux. These are simple preventative measures that pose no threat to the infant. Doctors may also recommend thickening bottle feedings with cereal, altering feeding frequencies, trying solid foods and steering clear of any highly acidic foodstuffs.

It takes about 100 days of life for a child’s digestive system to become fully developed. Prior to attaining maturity, a lack of coordination in the gastrointestinal tract may lead to constant acid reflux. But only if your infant’s GERD does not improve within a reasonable time frame, might your doctor opt for the use of medication. Most OTC products are formulated to deal with the pains associated with excessive gassiness. But the actual problem of reflux itself often responds well to the use of natural gripe waters such as ColicCalm that can do a great job in helping infants through that vital period of adjustment and development for their delicate and maturing digestive systems while keeping GERD at bay.
