Frequently Asked Questions

What is colic?

Colic refers to when your baby is crying a lot without any obvious cause and, while it can be upsetting, it’s a common problem that should get better on its own.

 

Your baby might have colic if they cry more than 3 hours a day, 3 days a week for at least 1 week, and they will likely cry more often in the afternoon and evening.

 

It will be hard to settle your baby if they have colic; they might clench their firsts, go red in the face, bring their knees up to their tummy or arch their back.

What do nits look like?

Head lice are tiny insects that live in the hair, and nits are the empty egg cases attached to hair that head lice hatch from.

 

Nits and head lice can be difficult to spot, but you’ll need to look out for white or grey-brown marks from the size of a pinhead to the size of a sesame seed.

 

Other signs include small white eggs in the hair behind the ears or at the back of the neck, an itchy scalp, a rash on the back of the neck and a feeling of something moving in the hair.

When should I pack my hospital bag?

When you’re in the last trimester of your pregnancy, you’ll need to start preparing yourself for labour. 

 

That includes packing your hospital bag with essentials that you’ll need like your birth plan, toiletries, comfortable clothes, a dressing gown, towels and, of course, baby clothes.

 

We recommend that you start packing your hospital bag at least 3 weeks before your due date. 

What does teething look like?

Teething typically starts at around 6 months old and it can be an uncomfortable time for your baby.

 

If your baby is teething, you may notice that they’re crying more than usual, drooling a lot, biting and possibly rubbing their cheeks or pulling on their ears.

 

There may also be changes to their eating and sleeping habits, like struggling to drink from a bottle or waking up during the night.

What are the symptoms of chickenpox?

Chickenpox is a common condition in young children, symptoms of which include itchy red spots that appear anywhere on the body.

 

The spots might spread or stay in a small area and they’ll fill with fluid and become blisters before scabbing over.

 

Other symptoms include a high temperature, aches and pains, generally feeling unwell and a loss of appetite.

 

Speak to a GP if you’re not sure it’s chickenpox, the skin around the blisters is red, hot or painful, or if your child is dehydrated. 

How do I treat my baby’s nappy rash?

When your baby gets a nappy rash, make sure you’re changing wet or dirty nappies as soon as possible. 

 

Clean the whole nappy area gently but thoroughly, wiping from front to back.

 

Use fragrance-free and alcohol-free baby wipes to clean your baby and dry them thoroughly without vigorous rubbing.

 

If your baby’s nappy rash doesn’t go away within 3 days, you can try a cream designed for nappy rash like Sudocrem, or ask a pharmacist or GP for advice.
