Colic Awareness with Infacol*


Today I have something to share to help raise awareness of an amazing new website that has launched called :)

Most parents if not all would have heard of Infant Colic which is a common condition affecting 1 in 5 infants in the UK. Whilst it is not a serious medical condition, sometimes it is possible to alleviate the distress and discomfort. *

The solution to help would be Infacol who offer the UK No 1 Colic Remedy. Their remedy is:

- Specially formulated to relieve wind, infant colic and griping pain.
- Can be used from birth
- Natural orange flavour
- Sugar, alcohol and colourant free
- Comes with a handy integrated dropper - making it easy to give to your baby
- Each bottle contains enough liquid for up to 100 doses

Some of the most common signs of Colic are:

- High pitched, inconsolable cry that normally occurs late afternoon or early evening, but can also occur throughout the day
- Baby will also tend to pass more wind than usual
- Draw his or her knees up to their chest and go red in the face with discomfort
- Little one’s tummy will become swollen and bloated with the trapped wind

On average, anxious first-time mothers make 16 trips to the doctors over a child's first year, with colic being in the top three concerns of new mums.
According to a study reported by Benenden Healthcare Society of 2,000 British mums - Nov 2012 and also Bounty Research Poll of 520 parents - Oct 2012

As you can imagine this can be extremely painful for the baby as well as daunting and stressful for the parent. Hence why Infacol have created drops to help which have been a huge success. But now also they have set up this website called - it is the world's first virtual colic clinic for parents :)

This new site offers a new way for parents to get immediate, 24/7 support by accessing video response answers to important questions about dealing with colicl either through a phone, tablet or laptop/computer. As well as also offering a quick and easy questions with yes/no answers to whether your child could possibly have Colic.

I think this new site is really amazing and I couldn't even begin to imagine what it is like for baby or a parent to deal with Colic. I am glad I have found this amazing site and glad I have this knowledge to help me prepare for my next child in the near (ish!) future!

Be sure to check the site here!!! How many of you have had children with Colic? I would love to know how you coped?!

Love, Gemma xo
