CHICAGO--(Colief® Infant Drops, is now available at Duane Reade stores throughout the New York Metropolitan area. September holds the highest birth rate numbers of any month, meaning many families are eagerly awaiting the arrival of their newborn baby. While this is a very exciting time for most, it can quickly be disrupted by the distress of colic. In an effort to save previous bonding time between families and newborns, Colief and Duane Reade have partnered to make this solution available in over 250 stores for the 1 in 5 newborns that will suffer.)--Crosscare Inc., a pioneer in colic research and a leading distributor of healthcare products throughout Europe and the US, today announced that their over-the-counter (OTC) all-natural colic remedy,
“The convenience of Colief at retailers like CVS/pharmacy, Wal-Mart, Walgreens and now Duane Reade, demonstrates the growing need for all-natural over-the-counter colic treatment options.”
Dr. Bob Sears, board-certified pediatrician, co-author in the Sears Parenting Library and brand spokesperson, partnered with Colief earlier in the year to help spread awareness about this over-the-counter treatment for colic, as the product has successfully treated more than half of the colic cases seen in his patients. Dr. Sears says, “Some babies have immature digestive systems, which prevents them from properly breaking down the lactose found in breast milk and formula. This causes severe discomfort from bloating and gas – which is expressed through the distressed crying of colic. Colief contains the naturally occurring enzyme lactase, which helps to break down the lactose for easier digestion, and allows babies with a temporary inability to digest lactose to be fed their usual milk—breast milk or formula—with much less discomfort.”
He adds, “Colief is always the best option for moms and parents, as it will either work to treat the baby’s colic or will act as a diagnostic tool and rule out a temporary inability to digest lactose as the cause of colicky symptoms. Having an all-natural solution such as Colief available on shelf is invaluable to the many parents in dire need of a solution.”
“Colief has been a number one recommended over-the-counter colic treatment in the UK and Ireland for over 15 years,” says Sharon Skelton, Marketing Manager for Crosscare Ltd. “The convenience of Colief at retailers like CVS/pharmacy, Wal-Mart, Walgreens and now Duane Reade, demonstrates the growing need for all-natural over-the-counter colic treatment options.”
