Is anyone else's LO struggling with wind? Isaac seems to be. It starred a couple of days ago. He won't settle, cries and writhes around a lot. I got some infacol yesterday and I think that maybe helping but wondered if anyone had any other tips to ease the pain for him?

Oh, just noticed - happy 3 weeks to Max & ceri!

Mine tends to wriggle and cry sometimes from wind. I have been using dentinox and I put it in his bottle.

Yeah! Maxwell is struggling with it and I'm not sure if he has a bit of reflux coming. I hope not😩 Erin had mild reflux as a baby and the gaviscon was awful!

I've got Max on infacol but only from yesterday. Seems to be helping but he's not really pooped in the last 24h. It can cause constipation sometimes so I'll keep an eye on it.

Other than that, baby massage and leg circles can help with trapped wind and colic. Have a look on YouTube for some good techniques.

Thank you! 💙😍 3weeks! I can't quite believe it! Lol! This time last year I was running the London Marathon!😂 Struggle to run a bath at the moment!

2 of my babies had extremely painful gas. Are you nursing? I took out all dairy in my diet and it helped tremendously. Also, keep baby upright about 30 minutes after eating and burp them a ton! In the first 6 weeks babies swallow a lot of air. crying, pacifiers, and eating all cause them to swallow more air then you'd think so burping then more often may help.

Thanks ladies. Kazy, yes I'm breastfeeding. I'll have a look at YouTube for some techniques. I'm finding that he's really settled and sleeps well during the day, but the nights are awful. I only got 2.5 hours sleep last night he just fed and then fussed/writhed about for hours. I'm trying to get him back to sleep now but it often takes a couple of hours. I also find that winding him wakes him up so I have to feed again to settle him

My lo did this a few nights. I burp her really well after the first side since I need her awake to finish on the other side. After 2nd side I mostly hold her upright against my chest and pat her back. it takes longer but she seems to stay settled since I haven't overly stimulated her.

fatigue has really set in for me. my husband went back to work Friday. I was doing pretty well but now that I am caring for 5 kids all day I am exhausted.
