When you first have a baby there is a huge steep learning curve. You have to develop a whole new vocabulary. Words such as weaning, winding and colic are all suddenly thrown about and you feel like you need a dictionary! When your newborn is crying inconsolably its very hard as a first time mum especially to know whether its perfectly normal or a possible sign of colic. I remember being told about Infacol, and advised that it may be something to try.
Colic affects one in four babies and is often associated with crying fits lasting for three hours or more, often during late afternoon or evening. Its a very distressing condition for mum and baby, especially because any attempts to soothe and comfort the baby may not work.
Colic is listed in the top three concerns of new mums according to a Bounty Research Poll so Infacol, Britain’s number one selling colic remedy, have launched the Virtual Colic Clinic app to help. It offers 24/7 support with video answers to questions about colic and can be accessed through smartphones, tablets and desktops. The information can be found at www.ColicHelp.co.uk.
Infacol’s Expert Midwife Nikki Khan says ‘Infacol want to give new mums and dads someone to turn to when in need of this extra support and guidance, at any time of day or night’. The Virtual Colic Clinic app follows the success of the ‘Is It Colic?’ web app which helps to identify whether a baby has colic through 10 simple yes/no questions.
As I prepare for the arrival of my second baby later in the year I’ll be bookmarking www.colichelp.co.uk for help if I suspect colic.
I was sent a goody bag by Infacol in return for sharing this information with you.
