The Colic Report


There is no known cure for colic and the condition is often not particularly well understood, as mum can't see a reason why her healthy baby won't stop crying. Additionally, mothers often don't know what to do about their baby's colicky symptoms or who to turn to. In order to get a better all round understanding of colic.

Consumer Analysis Ltd. were asked to carry out an independent survey to ask mums:

  • To describe the symptoms of colic in babies.
  • If their baby experienced colic.
  • If they felt concern about giving medicine to small babies to try and ease colic.
  • What bottle brand they used during baby's early months and what bottle brand they were using if/when baby developed colic.
  • To describe their emotions and experience when their baby developed colic.
  • Where mothers turned for advice.
  • What mothers with colicky babies tried to relieve symptoms and if the symptoms improved.
  • If mum decided to switch bottle brands as a solution, which brand she switched to and if it was effective.
