    What where you on the comfort for Ness,if you don't mind me asking.
    Funnily enough I have just switch from c and g comfort to c and g 1, but she is now only having one bottle of formula, so didn't think it would make much difference to her system, and she just couldn't keep the comfort down, as it was mixing with her mucus and was too thick :sick:
    Have to say (touch wood) she loves the new formula but we did get cartons, haven't noticed any wind issues. What bottles are using? Have you tried infacol, gripe water etc?

    was using comfort as she had constipation and colic but its giving her terrible trapped wind, just started her on C&G 1 today and she's a month old on 29th but I don't think two days earlier wil cause any harm! Going to start adding it to her bottles as dentinox and infacol dont seem to help her - I'm going to get some C&G cartons too for when we're out and about much easier than faffing around!

    Ava has always been really mucousy too - Millie was a c-section baby wasnt she? So was Ava and she's got loads of crap on her chest never thought about the comfort makng it worse!

    give it a week kelly and if shes still the same then try C&G comfort? She has reflux doesnt she? So worth sticking with comfort for reflux if its helping that x

    I found it made the reflux worse as it hangs around longer. But its early days on new ormula, always starts off good and then goes down hill.

    Yeah Ness she was a section baby, which they said at first but now hv said she is making more mucus :wacko:
