Colief are currently running a fab competition on their facebook page where you could win a massive £500 of Mothercare vouchers and whats more if you enter through this blog you have the chance to win the  lovely ceiling mobile pictured below for your little one. Read on to find out more.

Colief Infant Drops is calling on mums and dads across the UK and Ireland to stand up and celebrate the love, design talent and sheer hard work they’ve put into creating their little one’s room at home. Is your nursery every young girl’s dream or every baby boy’s paradise? Have you enjoyed letting your imagination run wild? Most importantly, do you think your baby’s nursery could inspire other idea-hungry mums and dads?

Colief’s ‘Comfy Cribs’ competition launches online on its new Facebook page ( on 6th June 2012, inviting parents to share inspiring photos of their little one’s nursery. To enter, simply like the page and follow the instructions to upload your picture, along with a short comment (50-100 words) on the inspiration, or key features, behind your look.

 Colief, used by parents for reducing hours of crying caused by colic, have launched the search for the most ‘Comfy Cribs’ to not only showcase everybody’s design talent but importantly, to celebrate how loving families everywhere put their child’s comfort first when they create a special place of their own within the home.

 For your chance to win one of three £500 Mothercare vouchers and have your design promoted as the best in the land across the media, simply visit the new Colief Facebook page and follow the instructions to upload your image from 6th June.

Celia Sawyer of Channel 4’s Four Rooms is a mother of two and interior designer to the stars: “A baby’s nursery is often seen as a sanctuary by parents, so a lot of time and energy is put in to making it the perfect place for their little one. Trends today are leaning towards continuity with the rest of the home, so if you like contemporary there is no reason why your little ones nursery can’t be contemporary. People tend to opt for less typical ‘baby colours’ and are being more adventurous, so trends are going against decorating their nursery with the theming of well known characters, with parents adding their own personal touch instead.”

 The judges are looking for entries in 3 categories:

·         Best Boy’s Crib 2012

·         Best Girl’s Crib 2012

·         Most Creative Crib 2012

 The closing date for entries is Monday 6th August, when a shortlist of finalists in each category will then be selected by the Colief judging panel. Pictures of the finalists’ nurseries will then be shared on the Colief Facebook page for the public to choose the overall winners by voting through ‘liking’ their favourite entry. The winners of each category will be announced on 17th September 2012.

 The prize for each category is £500 Mothercare vouchers, inclusion in a regional and national media campaign and an invitation to join Colief’s influential Mum’s Panel, sharing advice with other mums.

 Sharon Skelton from Colief said, “Excessive crying is one of the main symptoms of colic, which can make it a difficult condition for families to manage. Although colic usually passes by the time baby is six months old, whilst the baby is in distress it is really important, for both the parents and the child’s wellbeing, to try and find as many ways as possible to offer comfort. We hope the ‘Comfy Cribs’ competition will inspire parents with new ways to comfort their baby on any budget.”
