Sto­ries of colic sought

Kapi-Mana News - - PARENTING -

Fam­i­lies who have en­dured a baby suf­fer­ing from colic are be­ing sought for a na­tional sur­vey.

‘‘The sur­vey is a place for suf­fer­ing fam­i­lies to ‘purge, to tell it like it is or was’,’’ says Philippa Mur­phy, post­na­tal li­ai­son ed­u­ca­tor for Nat­u­ral Wind­ing, a ser­vice of­fer­ing drug-free meth­ods for com­bat­ing colic.

‘‘Your heartache can make a dif­fer­ence; one that has po­ten­tial to fur­ther de­velop our par­ent­ing so­ci­ety in a pos­i­tive, in­formed na­ture.’’

Ms Mur­phy be­lieves that com­pil­ing in­for­ma­tion of the daily re­al­ity for Kiwi par­ents pro­vides the nec­es­sary foun­da­tion needed to es­tab­lish the facts, find the gaps and de­velop so­lu­tions, ‘‘ one of which needs to be early in­ter­ven­tion and preven­tion through early ed­u­ca­tion’’.

To take part in the sur­vey, run­ning un­til De­cem­ber 1, visit the Nat­u­ral Wind web­site: www. nat­u­ral­wind­ing .co.nz.
