If appropriate some tests, such as checking vitamin or hormone levels may be recommended.
All consultations are conducted via Skype for your convenience and comfort.

It can be very challenging to look after babies with colic and the advice online can often be confusing and overwhelming.

Management plans are tailor-made to suit you and your baby, whether you are breast milk or formula feeding. If necessary, recommendations to health health care practitioners such as lactation consultants, dietitians and GP's may be suggested. An integrative approach is taken to work alongside doctors advice and treatments for babies who are being managed medically.
