    help! I feed my one month old nurture feed, she is doubled up with wind after, tried gripe water, dettinox and infacol which makes her more in pain and has the sqits after, I am getting no sleep attall as she fidgets and cries all night, the only way she sleeps is being in bed with me stomach to stomach, i am terrified of squashing her but i cant get any sleep otherwise!

    also if her hips r ok u can slowly bring them to her tummy this might help her feel better

    I think early on LO's can suffer from trapped wind quite badly as their digestive systems are still getting used to actually having to work and processing the formula.

    I remember Brooke being very windy but all of a sudden it eased up

    Yeah this was the case with my two as well. I went through 2 bottles of Dentinox a week for several weeks then they just stopped being windy at about 9 weeks or so.

    My friend had the same problem and went to the docs and was given something to help wind. Maybe you could try?

    And dont worry about sleeping with him just to get some sleep, we've all done it!

    I am wondering whether she is lactose intolerant, I have looked up the symptoms on the web this morning, flaking head, rash, wind, loose stools, she fits it too a T, I know I shouldn't change formulas without medical attention but I switched to SMA Lactose Free, small tin today, tried her on it, and for the first time with some crying, but not as bad she is sleeping in her moses basket by herself this week without waking up every 15 minutes screaming blue murder, just need to see how it goes, I think I can finally get my head down for an hour without worrying about squishing her!

    i agree. tbh we tried everything but in all honesty i don't think anything would help. i believe it's just something they go through. xxx

    I think it must be a baby at this age general thing, Olivia is going through a similar thing, pain and very windy, slightly not constipated cos poo's are runny but having trouble passing it.

    My friend is lactose intolerant and her son has been tested for it too. I would definately get advice from doc though before stayin on lactose free milk cos it could cut out some essential foods etc. It's simple enough to get baby tested for too, although they need to take some blood. Good Luck hun!

    You could try coleif. Its a tennerfor a tiny bottle but you put only 2 drops in each bottle. Its supposed to break down the milk to make it more digestable thus helping with wind.
