Neosanté marks National Breastfeeding Awareness Month

By David Salazar - 08/06/2018
Neosanté Health Solutions, the maker of Delictase Oral Drops — a lactase enzyme supplement for babies with colic — is marking National Breastfeed Awareness Month. The Boca Raton, Fla.-based company noted that colic often accompanies breastfeeding, potentially leading to irritability, agitation and crying.

The company said babies who don’t produce enough lactase are unable to fully digest the lactose in their mother’s breast milk, leading to bloating and abdominal pain, among other symptoms. Delictase Oral Drops are designed to allow parents to medicate newborns and children about lactose intolerance or maldigestion, Neosanté said.

"Our goal isn't to stop crying, it is to provide a clean, effective lactase source for babies who lack the enzyme," said Neosanté CEO João Santos. "By doing this, we address the cause of baby colic. As we say, 'Don't just ease the symptoms, attack the cause of infant colic.'"

The company said that its supplement is available in 15-ml bottles for newborns and infants — enough for roughly 44 meals with an average dose of eight drops per meal.
