The following are what people are saying about Calming Colic:
Calming Colic made it easy to understand what was happening to my baby boy. Understanding it is the biggest step towards curing it. My boy had colic and Reflux. Rather than using the useless medicines prescribed, I swore by Cranial Osteopathy as recommended in Calming Colic. The most invaluable advice was given about taking probiotics following a course of antibiotics, this really helped. I have passed on this book to all my friends as it should be given out by GPs and midwives.”
Excellent book for new parents
I teach baby massage classes and I recommend this book to all my mothers especially those who have babies with colic or reflux.”
Every pregnant mum needs this book!!!!
Amazing book!!! How long have we put up with people telling new mums ‘its just colic, it will go when baby is 12 weeks!’ Now at last calming colic explains not only the reason why colic can occur but also how to help it!! (or cure it) Wow!!!
I read this after my baby girl was screaming for 3-4 hours every night. We followed Chritian’s advice and we have a much happier baby. Im not making this up, when reading this book i felt it was actually written for us!
I have recommended to lots of friends and will continue to do so.
Honestly it makes so much sense. I just wish midwives and health visitors would start giving this advice. It would avoid a LOT of unnecessary stress at such an amazing time.
I wish i knew about this when having my first baby.
Thank you Christian!
Thanks you very much for your book – brilliant and a relief to read and understand what is happening to my baby girl. All new mums should be issued with this book by the NHS on the birth of their child! It would have saved me a lot of stress and worry over the past few months.
Please see my testimonial below for George Hankin, it really has worked!
I did not write this testimonial straight away as after my third and last session my son became ill with a tummy bug so was up all night being poorly for a week and then he took a week to recover, feeding several times in the night during recovery. So we were unsure if there had been any changes in my sons poor sleeping habits. However after the 2 weeks of being poorly and then fully recovering as if by magic he slept through for the first time ever for a solid 12 hours. I brought my 8 month old son to see Christian as he wasn’t sleeping well, he always seemed to be crying in his sleep and seemed to be in pain. He was delivered via forceps and we were separated for a while after a complicated birth, so Christian suggested this could have caused him some trauma. He was also given anti-biotics at 6 months and he was never really the same happy baby after that. Christian recommended three sessions of cranial osteopathy and the pro-biotic as he had been treated with the anti-biotic. It really has worked, my son is now 10 months old and he sleeps from 6.30pm to 7.15am on average. He doesn’t seem to be in pain and uncomfortable and has stopped crying in his sleep. As well as the crying in his sleep I found it impossible to get him to go to sleep, I tried everything from baby massage to always needing the hoover / white noise to get him to go to sleep. But since his treatment he doesn’t need any encouragement and goes to sleep of his own accord peacefully without all the screaming we had previously had. He generally seems a much happier and chilled out baby. I wish I had brought him to see Christian much sooner and enjoyed more nights of good sleep!
I always find these kind of books interesting and this one didn’t disappoint, a very interesting read and it is written in a way that I actually had time to read it with my colicky baby and 3 year old! It has definitely helped us out but would have benefitted us even more had I known about and read it whilst still pregnant. I recommend this to mothers with colicky babies and also think its worth a read from any pregnant mother.
Essential reading for parents (new/to be) and health visitors, midwives…..
This is an excellent book which should be read by everyone who is soon to have or already has a baby, not forgetting mothers who have had a colicky baby and want to avoid this problem in future! Also, it should be read by those who work with mums and infants.
Full of practical information about how to manage colic, this has been written from professional experience, in a style that makes it a pleasure to read.
As a nutritional therapist, I spend much time advising mothers on how they can improve their babies and their own digestive issues, and commonly recommend a visit to a cranial osteopath.
The references give the book some additional weight, and make it perfect for sharing with health care professionals.
Thank you Christian, for writing this book and making it so readily available. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
A must for new parents
Calming Colic was recommended to me by a friend – it’s a really easy book to read – I read it within an hour, and then went back and read it again a few days later. It has useful suggestions as to the reason for your baby having colic, what might have started it, ideas on how to resolve it, etc. We followed all the recommendations, and we have had success. Thank you Christian! I wish we had had this book with our first baby too. Would have stopped all the sleepless nights for the first 12 weeks!
This is a pioneering book. If your child is suffering with the symptom called Colic, Calming Colic will help you identify and resolve the underlying causes in your child.”
All Mum’s to be should read this book
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It contains clear, concise information as to how to help your baby when it is distressed by colicky symptoms. There is no need to wait and suffer along with your distressed baby, this book can really help.
I am a Cranial Osteopath myself and so treat a lot of babies and Mummies and will be recommending this book to my patients. I agree with all of the advice given here and am so glad that an Osteopath has taken the time to research and write such an excellent reference for parents.
This book is very easy to read, clear and concise. It explains what is happening, why and how and what can help. Everything you need for a calmer, happier family.
Once you pick it up you won’t want to put it down and luckily it is a quick and easy read so even if your baby is screaming the house down you will have enough time to digest the information and do something that will help almost immediately.
There are references here for people who would like to research the subject further, so if you do, please tell your healthcare team so that the word can be spread and more babies and families can be helped by this wonderful book.
