Dear mothers,

I am doing research on colic therefore I need mothers with young babies (below 7 months) to fill in a short questionnaire for me. The study is for my thesis and is trying to investigate whether/how colic has an effect on your well being.

I will provide you information about our findings after the data has been analysed. It is a good way to become aware of how your child's colic can change your mood, psychological state, and so on.

I would really appreciate your help as I am running out of time to collect data . Its a very short questionnaire! Please let me know if you will be willing to help me so I can send you the questionnaire

Thank you all

Will you be looking into the link between milk intolerance and colic as part of your research, as it is thought that a lot of 'colic' actually isn't?

Well there is a lot of information on colic and studies have inconsistent findings so we dont actually know for sure what colic is. The definitions differ a lot hence the inconsistency with the findings.. I am looking on how having a colicky baby has an impact on you (mood, psychological state, sleep).

Its a very interesting piece of research, please let me know if you would like to help me by filling in my questionnaire. Its very short and your contribution means a lot to me

Thank you once again

Sorry eby - my dd is too old for me to take part in your research now.

my little girl (though now too old for me to help you) used to have colic and i felt like a zombie walking her round trying to help her settle.

Oh dear..well at least she's older now so no colic it must have been really hard to deal with.. I hope my baby in the future does now have it..
