I've got one for sale, I haven't listed it on eBay yet (that would mean having to come to terms with not having my home birth, :lol
but I reckon I'll need to do it soon as it's in the way! It's a birth pool in a box (regular size) that's brand new, didn't even get the liner out the packet. We inflated the pool itself to check it didn't have any punctures or anything, but it was never filled. The only thing it doesn't have is a pump to inflate it, but any pump can attach to it. Send me an email if you're interested, DHL can deliver for around ??16 I believe.

I have one too - maybe depends where you live where is most convenient for you to collect it as I wouldn't post it!
I used mine for pain relief during labour but didn't give birth in it, so it's totally clean etc. I am in Surrey so if that is convenient, let me know.

Colic & reflux! Help!
Hi all! My LO is 3 weeks & 1 day. Around 11 days ago, I recognised signs of colic and my HV confirmed she believed he was suffering with colic too. It always began at 9pm for a few hours. We changed baby bottles and began giving him Infacol. We noticed a slight improvement but he was still screaming! We battled on as Infacol takes a while to work. Sunday evening he began crying at 6pm and it carried on all night and at 10:30am on Monday, I took him to the doctors, still crying and screaming 😭. The minute the doctor called us, he fell asleep. She thinks he also has reflux so gave us infant gaviscon. She recommended us trying Colic cow & gate also. So, we began with Gaviscon and started Colief instead (the dr didn’t rate Infacol).. with the new milk and he slept wonderfully! The bout of colic that evening lasted 20 mins and that was it! Next night (last night), it came back with a vengeance. He’s screamed all night, he’s refused milk, he’s drank the odd 2oz here and there, he’s straining and crying, his legs and arms are wild, he eventually managed a poo which was brown and sticky! 💩 it’s now 10am and he has finally fallen asleep - in my arms. Ive booked him in with a chiropractor as I’ve heard great things and I’m still using colic bottles and Colief.. please can someone offer any advice. I’m at a total loss. I’ve not slept in a fortnight and I really can’t watch him in agony until this stops - in a few months time 😳😩
