    I'm the same :growlmad: Only thing that works for me is prune juice BUT I found it seemed to give LO tummy ache/terrible wind.

    I might try drinking at night after his last feed of the day, maybe it won't effect him then :shrug: as he sleeps 7/8 hours.

    I just constantly drink LOTS of water and it seems to help me. I've never tried prune juice though.
