Lacteeze Drops Natural are mixed with dairy that is in a liquid form (such as milk, breast-milk or infant formula) and the mixture is left for a while so that the LACTEEZE converts the lactose in the dairy into a more digestible form of milk sugar.
Lacteeze drops are suitable from birth and contain no gluten, no dairy, no preservatives, no artificial colours and no flavours.
Simply add 5 drops of LACTEEZE to one litre of milk, stir well and leave in the fridge for 24 hours prior to consumption. This will convert 70-80% of the lactose.
If you wish to convert more lactose, you can increase the number of drops used or leave the milk in the fridge for longer.
Express a few tablespoons of breastmilk into a sterilised container and add 4 drops of LACTEEZE. The foremilk contains most of the lactose. Place the mixture aside (not in the fridge) for 5 minutes then give the mixture baby. You can then breastfeed as normal. Studies have shown that this method forms a “coating” for the baby’s digestive system which allows the remaining breast-milk to be digested normally.
If your baby is very sensitive you may need to use tablets instead of drops (tablets replace the lactase enzyme directly rather than converting the lactose in the breastmilk).
To use the tablets for breast feeding - crush quarter to half of a LACTEEZE tablet (either Extra Strength or Childrens Strength) and mix with a little expressed breast milk or boiled and cooled water to form a thin paste. Put the mixture on baby’s tongue before breast-feeding. The amount needed will depend on the individual baby’s needs.
Any excess LACTEEZE is eliminated through the digestive system.
Add 4 drops of LACTEEZE per 50ml of warm expressed milk (not hot, approximately 30-40oC), shake well and wait 30 minutes prior to consumption. Do not refrigerate. This will convert approximately 90% lactose.
Alternatively, you can add 2 drops of LACTEEZE per 50mL of warm expressed milk, shake well and wait 5 minutes before refrigerating for 4 hours prior to consumption. This will convert approximately 80% lactose.
If the infant is not able to consume a lactose free formula:
Add 4 drops of LACTEEZE per 50ml of warm infant formula (not hot, approximately 30-40oC), shake well and wait 30 minutes prior to consumption. Do not refrigerate. This will convert approximately 80% lactose.
Alternatively, you can add 2 drops of LACTEEZE per 50mL of warm infant formula, shake well and wait 5 minutes before refrigerating for 4 hours prior to consumption. This will convert approximately 60% lactose.
Follow the instructions for expressed breastmilk above, making sure that you do not freeze the mixture until after the conversion process has taken place. Then simply thaw and use as needed. Discard any milk that is not used after thawing. Do not refreeze.
*Note: LACTEEZE is an enzyme and works better at warm temperatures. Do not add it to very cold or hot milk.
