Infant Colic Awareness
As a new Mum, I wasn’t aware at all of infant colic and how hard it could be to deal with.
Luckily Theo didn’t have colic, however many of our friends babies did. Their journeys sound tough as they had to work harder to ensure their little ones were happy.
What is Colic?
From the NHS website
‘Colic is the name for excessive, frequent crying in a baby who appears to be otherwise healthy. It’s a common problem that affects up to one in five babies.’
Infant colic can begin within a few weeks of their lives.
What symptoms to look out for?
- Intense crying
- Crying in the late afternoon / early evening which can last many hours
- Babies face red or flushed when they cry
- The baby clenches his/her fists, brings knees up to their chest or arches their back when crying
A colicky baby can affect everyone in the household due to the sleepless nights, and this can also affect relationships between partners. Sleep deprivation can also negatively impact on concentration and mood.
Infacol is highly recommended and is Britain’s number one Colic Remedy Cry-Sis who are the only parenting charity dedicated to supporting parents through excessive infant crying.
They have launched the first Infant Colic Awareness Campaign in September 2017. Colic Awareness Campaign strives to educate and support parents to ensure they can experience the joys of parenthood to the full.
If you would like to support Colic Awareness Campaign, you can sign up to participate in the Colic Awareness Thunderclap on [URL] and donate to Cry-Sis on http://www.cry-sis.org.uk/donate.html.
