Win a baby sleeping bag and raise awareness about infant colic

Infacol recently conducted world research and found that whilst infant colic effects 1 in 5 babies, only 1 in 3 new mums admit that they know what it is and how to treat it. I am one of those Mums, I am 100% sure that Isla had this as a baby. It really upsets me thinking back and that I didn’t understand what was up with her, wishing her to just go to sleep. 

I remember the hours she screamed the house down whilst clenching her knees up. It’s horrible to think she was going through this and I didn’t realise what was happening to her. I wish I had this information back then! 

Signs and symptoms of infant colic

They include the following: 

Intense crying bouts

Crying in the late afternoon or evening that lasts several hours

The baby’s face is red and flushed when they cry

The baby clenches their fists, draws their knees up or arches their back while crying

The effects of these sleepless nights can have a huge impact. Isla slept through the night for the first time when she was nearly 3 years old. Research by Infacol has shown that more than half (56%) of British mums say a lack of sleep has affected their relationship with their partner, and a further third (38%) say it has affected their relationship with their children. Sleep deprivation is also well-known for negatively impacting on concentration and mood.

Competition with Infacol and The White Company

Infacol are giving one lucky reader a 0-6 months baby sleeping bag from The White Company. The baby sleeping bag is worth £32. In a snuggly wadded 2.5-tog weight, this sleeping bag has grey marl yarn-dye stripes, and a gorgeous embroidery of Kimbo the elephant to the top. The smallest sleeping bags, designed for babies aged 0-6 months, also feature poppers beneath the armholes to create a smaller, snug fit.

Infacol Competition

This competition closes at midnight on 16th November 2017.

    To soothe my always crying colicky baby, I have successfully used “Babies magic tea”. I was drinking the tea and was also giving directly to my little one and got him soothed instantly.
