Did you know that September 26th is officially the most popular birthday in the UK ? The number of babies born in a single day rises from 1,800 to 2,000 ! This means there are lots of excited expectant parents awaiting their little bundles of joy. However 1 in 3 of them are not aware Infantile Colic, a medical condition which affects 1 in 5 newborns. Colic can cause excessive crying which can be a challenge to soothe.
Infacol and Cry-sis, the only parenting charity dedicated to supporting parents through excessive infant crying, have launched Colic Awareness Month in September. The campaign strives to educate and support parents so they can enjoy the full experience of parenthood.
While some parents use methods such as lullabies and background noise to soothe their crying babies many are turning to modern technology for help. A new app has been developed which claims to interpret an infant’s cry. By using acoustics of the cries of thousands of babies, the new app ‘Chatterbaby’ claims to help parents decipher a cry of hunger, pain, tiredness or if they are just fed up. Infacol carried out a survey of 500 mums and dads with babies under the age of 2, and found that 1 in 3 parents would be willing to try an app like this, if it helped to calm their infant.
