    Our LO is 6 months and farting seems to really bother him, it also did before we started on solids. It wakes him up at night and during the day he will often not take much of his bottle as he's straining to pass wind and cries like he's in pain. We've tried c&g comfort, stage one and hungry baby, SMA lactose free (for his eczema), aptimil stage 1, hungry baby and he's been on their comfort milk for over a week but it's not helping. He's prone to constipation. Have tried Infacol, gripe water and baby massage but not much helps. He's teething like mad, could this be a cause? Any suggestions?

    Jenna has always been really windy but I find lying her down on her back and cycling her legs and a bit of baby massage, using the inverted u shape helps. Keep your lo on their back as much as possible and they will be able to bring it up much easier.

    Apart from that I can't really add anything else, except make sure the solids you give are the least windy you can find.
