World’s first infant colic indicator application for worried mums
The first six months of a baby’s life can be an anxious time for new mums. A Facebook poll by parenting club Bounty showed that infant colic is the third biggest concern for mums after cot death and postnatal depression.
Infant colic is a common condition affecting around 1 in 5 infants in the first month of life. It is often associated with crying fits, which can last up to three hours at a time and be distressing to both child and parents.
The anxiety for new mums is increased by the fact that colic often occurs late afternoons and evenings, when they can’t reach a midwife or doctor and opt instead for internet research.
‘It can be exhausting and upsetting for parents with a colicky baby, especially in the middle of the night. Coping with the inconsolable crying and not knowing where to turn for the correct advice can be incredibly distressing, but now parents can turn to expert guidance that they can trust at the time that they need it the most,’ says expert midwife Nikki Khan.
