WIND how to deal with trapped wind or how to tell if baby had wind


Hey

How can you tell when a baby has wind?

Also how can you help them with wind?

Im worried my little one may have trapped wind, she was crying today and raising her legs up high and kept straining i heard her do a few farts around the same time and her belly seemed to be abit bubbly sounding!

Thanks for reading

xxxx

If she is drawing her legs up then at almost certainly wind. You can give infacol which helps break wind or you could try gripe water.

Definitely sounds like wind. Maybe try infacol? I think it says on the bottle not to give Gripe water until they are a month old. I could be wrong. It's pretty useful after that.

OT but you LO is so adorable!

I think all babies get wind to a greater or lesser degree. You can try burping her in different positions.

Our LO is very windy and we found a change to Dr Brown bottles really helped. We made the mistake of using some of the Tommee Tippee 'essentials' bottles when visiting people at Christmas- that resulted in 7 hours of LO screaming in agony with tummy ache on Christmas night.

Pretty sure its impossible to get rid of all the air as more air is produced during digestion so as long as you get most of it out that's pretty good going!

If you google it'll come up with loads of sites for positions that are good for winding We know Maci has wind when she starts to dribble her milk, draw up her legs, fuss when drinking her milk etc.

I have problems with this as I think I am awfull at winding Freya. I think I am being too gentle, and she struggles to get any wind up. Thanks for the info about colic massage I will have to look that up.

I tried infacol with Maisie, it did work but I found it made her really quite sick too, she will be 6 weeks old tomorrow and is getting much better at bringing it up now.
