Baby Suffering With Colic? You're Not Alone

Having four kids, I have had my fair share of ups and downs, sleepless nights and moments of panic where I just didn't know what to do with myself or my little one. I remember feeling very alone at times, not wanting to burden others with my troubles. One of those times was when Gracie as a baby was suffering with colic.

Baby colic or infantile colic is described as when your little one is in distress/crying which last for more than three hours a day and more than three days a week. Obviously this is just a guideline, your baby may cry more or less.

Colic usually starts within those first few weeks of your babies life, an already tough time for parents as they try to adjust to a new life/new routine. I myself remember walking round in a daze sometimes from being so tired.

Infacol want to offer parents some much needed help and support. They have opened up a virtual colic support clinc. Here you can type your questions and get video answers from a medically trained midwife.

"We know that anxious parents are turning more to online research as GPs are unavailable late into the evening, which is when colic can hit. Infacol want to give new mums and dads someone to turn to when in need of thid extra suport and guidance, at any time of the day or night" says Nikki Khan, Infacol's expert midwife.

The site also features :

Is it colic test? : You are able to go through a set of questions to determine whether your baby is suffering with colic or whether it may be something else causing your little ones symptoms.

Helpful colic videos : Showing things like baby massage, tips on breastfeeding and much more.

The best thing I think is that this site is available to you 24/7, so if you are up and worrying with your baby at 3am, you can pop your computer on and hopefully get some advice that will put your mind at ease. Much better than just googling for the answers (something I recommend you not do!!).

Just remember you are most certainly not alone and these moments won't last forever.


Disclaimer : I was sent a thank you goody bag for writing this post however all thoughts and opinions are my own.


  1. Without Infacol I would of been carried off by white coats ages ago. Agree with not using goggle! X

    1. it is fab when we find something that works, I think with parenting we all go a little insane sometimes x

  2. Aww my babies are past the Infacol stage now, but my friend is going through colic with her baby. I will share this with her x

  3. I wish I have read this sooner because I've had sleepless nights during the first few months of my baby girl. Fortunately it I've already passed that; small frequent feeding helped and of course burping. I'll share this to my friends.
