Digestive discomfort can affect babies due to the immaturity of their digestive systems. As a result babies may suffer from colic or constipation. This could be due to a reduced level of healthy bacteria in the tummy or a reduced ability to digest lactose (a sugar naturally found in milk) or protein.
If your baby is suffering from colic or constipation, then you may want to talk to your healthcare professional about changing from your normal formula to Cow & Gate comfort.
Cow & Gate comfort is nutritionally complete and suitable from birth for bottlefed babies and as part of a weaning diet from 6 months to 1 yr. Cow & Gate comfort has been specially developed with a reduced level of lactose, whey protein that has been partially broken down and a special fat blend, for the dietary management of colic and constipation. This special blend of ingredients means you may notice a change in your baby’s stool consistency (looser) and colour (greener). This is perfectly normal.
