Giveaway!! Raising Colic Awareness with Infacol and The White Company

*Collaborative Post
Infant Colic, well what can I say? After months of our baby struggling with pain, not being able to sleep and with us trying every trick in the book it is safe to say that I have blocked as much as I can from my memory already. I think one of the most frustrating parts of Colic is the fact that there isn’t one simple answer to curing it. The doctors look at you and say ‘yeah it’s Colic’ like it is the most ordinary thing in the world and make you feel as though you are wasting their time but the thing is, Colic isn’t just one symptom it is many categorised under one name.

How I Solved my Baby’s Colic and Reflux Problem

*Contains affiliate links

If you have followed William’s journey, you will know that soon after coming home from the hospital he began to suffer from colic and reflux. Jake never had these problems so everything I was seeing and experiencing was all completely new to me. I had heard of parents pacing the floor all night but until I had William I honestly never had a clue how bad things could be. I was shattered. I felt defeated by the lack of sleep and the endless crying and being told by doctors that ‘it’s just colic’ wasn’t enough for me. I’m not one to sit back and wait for things to work themselves out, especially when it comes to health. I need to be actively finding a solution, looking for tips, doing anything to help my children and just waiting for him to grow out of it all was never an option.

What’s it Like to have a Baby with Reflux?

Reflux. It’s a word I’d heard of previously, just as I had done with Colic but when your first child has no issues with these things there isn’t any need to look into it further or discover what it actually means to have a baby with either or even both of these conditions. Well, my wake up call has come– quite literally! My newest addition has been suffering for weeks now and no matter what we try there doesn’t seem to be much let up… Continue reading “What’s it Like to have a Baby with Reflux?”

11 Ways to Tackle Colic

Colic has taken hold of our household and it damn well sucks! I have been taken by surprise with this one and as my first child never had these issues I feel like a novice Mum again, learning on the job. I have taken to social media to ask for advice on how to tackle colic and didn’t actually realise how many different remedies or ideas. I have tried some of these and not everything has worked for us but Continue reading “11 Ways to Tackle Colic”

7 Reasons Why Colic Sucks!

My second child has colic, something that we never really had to deal with the first time and I can honestly say that it sucks! I never fully understood the ‘my baby doesn’t sleep’ thing. Yes, child number one would feed a lot which would have me up every couple of hours at night but we were very lucky that we didn’t experience the screaming we are seeing now. It’s suddenly like being a first-time Mum all over again, new things to learn and new conditions to pull my hair out over!  Continue reading “7 Reasons Why Colic Sucks!”
