The majority of parents have to deal with colic in some shape or form when they have a young child. It is a stressful time for everyone, especially when you seemingly can't do anything to placate your child.
Colic affects up to one in four babies and Jack happens to make up one of those one in four babies - I remember the sleepless nights and frantic googling of everything very well. Colic is often associated with crying fits which mostly occur from late afternoon onwards. Nothing can be done to placate the baby and this often leaves parents very stressed. When Jack was suffering with colic, I raced into my local pharmacy and they recommended me Infacol straight off the bat. I know there are other colic medicines available out there but this was the one they suggested - and slowly but surely, it worked.
To help ease the worries of first time parents, Infacol have launched an app - the Virtual Colic Clinic. This is the first of its kind and offers an easier way for parents to get reassurance rather than having to turn to Mr Google all the time for their answers. The Colic Clinic is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and this is perfect for parents because, as mentioned above, colic tends to occur late in the day when GP surgeries are shut and so parents need somewhere they can turn to when the frustration gets too much.
I know I would have found an app like this invaluable if it was around when Jack was very young - instead, myself and Steve found ourselves scouring the internet every time we had a worry about him. There is even a handy little Is it colic? guide for worried parents to complete.
It is easy to see why Infacol are the countries number 1 selling infant colic remedy. This kind of support is invaluable and I really do hope worried parents take advantage of it.
I was sent some Infacol items for the purpose of this post
