Survivor's Guide to Colic Helps Parents of Colicky Babies
MELBOURNE, Australia, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ Frustrated by the absence of a comprehensive guide for parents, Melbourne mum Jen Lester brings together for the first time all the information needed by every parent of a colicky baby. Drawing on the latest medical research, Survivor's Guide to Colic includes powerful settling techniques and a full range of solutions to address the causes of colic (including the pros and cons of each solution).
Colic is surprisingly common estimated to affect around 20% of babies. However, there is disagreement about its definition and cause, polarized views about solutions and information presented by suppliers can be one-sided. That creates an almost impossible maze for tired new parents to navigate.
"Being unable to comfort your own baby is a devastating introduction to parenthood. All you want to do is help your baby stop crying, but it is surprisingly difficult to find high quality, balanced information," says Jen Lester, author of Survivor's Guide to Colic.
"Colic is a risk factor for serious issues like postnatal depression and shaken baby syndrome, puts stress on relationships and can impact the mother/baby bond, so its critical that parents get the help they need with colic," Jen says.
Rated 5 stars by reviewers and readers alike, Bil Howard for readersfavorite.com describes the book as a "no-nonsense, but unassuming masterpiece... Jen discusses all of the possible underlying causes without accusing you of failing as a parent... works to undo many of the myths... and takes a calm and professional approach to both sides of the arguments about the causes of colic..."
He adds, "Jen Lester has put together a book that ought to be passed out along with all of the other pregnancy and baby books that have traditionally been a part of the expectant mother's library... Using her own experience as well as a mountain of medical research, Jen has truly dedicated herself to helping others get through the frustration of this most difficult time... Survivor's Guide to Colic is not only essential reading for expecting and new parents, but mandatory."
