Coping with Baby Colic, Reflux, Eczema and Allergies
To the mums pacing up and down with their crying babies day after day, night after night, I see you.
To the mums googling ‘colic’, ‘baby reflux’ and ‘baby eczema’ and hoping that there is a solution to your baby’s misery, I see you.
To the mums who are at their wits end and wondering how you are supposed to ‘enjoy every moment’ with your baby when they are suffering so much, I see you.
To all the mums whose doctors dismiss you with “all babies cry”, “are you a first time mum?”, “it’s just a bit of colic”, I see you.
To all the mums who doubt themselves, and wonder if maybe your baby would be happier with a different mum, I see you.
To all the mums who now understand why sleep deprivation is used as a form of torture, I see you.
To all the mums who wonder if this is what your life is just going to be now. Survival. Existence. Not living. I see you.
To all the mums who are not just trying to get through the day, but are literally just trying to get through the next hour. And the next. And the next. I see you.
Because I’ve been there too.
