    Hi ladies! We have been trying Colief with LO for a week now and it seems to be helping her (she was very unsettled between feeds before) and also she has slept through since the day we started using it :thumbup:

    However it is a pain on the bum to use while BF as you have to mix it with expressed milk and not to mention the price (haven't enquired about a perscription yet). I was wondering does going dairy free do the same job or is this something totally different?

    I only have milk on cereal which I could drop no probs, I would miss cheese though I love it (but hips wouldn't :haha:)!

    Cheers :flower:

    Its worth a try; to be honest I am highly skeptical about the benefits of colief for BF babies as it is designed to break down cows milk lactose in formula-cows milk lactose doesn't pass through to human milk but the cows milk protein (which colief doesn't touch) is often the main problem xx
