Infacol have recently launched a website to help parents whose babies are suffering with colic called Colic Help
Colic is a common condition, affecting around 1 in 5 infants in the UK in their first month of life. However, it is not a serious medical condition and usually resolves by the age of 3-4 months. Colic is usually recognised by bouts of inconsolable crying, often for hours at a time, for no specific reason – i.e. your baby is not hungry, overtired, needs a nappy change or has a raised temperature.
Despite medical research, no one is certain what causes infant colic. A likely explanation may be the build up of trapped wind in your baby’s bowel causing pain and discomfort.
Izzy had colic and a website like this would have been great at the time when we really felt like pulling our hair out.

* Infacol sent me a small treat to say thank you for raising awareness of their new site including a candle, some cookies and a mug for the essential cups of tea to get you through the first year of sleepless nights.
