My little man is nearly 10 months. He's very happy and attached. However, he gets terrible wind.
During the day, he's quite happy to go about his business letting off farts left, right and centre. At night though, or during sleep in general, it causes him a lot of distress.
I'm so sad seeing him tormented by this every night. A 3 hour stretch of sleep is up there with his longest these days.
He has milk soy protein intolerance.
He is still breastfed. I haven't eaten foods that he can't manage in about 7 months (except when doing dietary challenges). His reflux has gone away--I'm confident that this is mo longer an issue for him. I think his wind has been worse on the whole since starting solids, but there doesn't seem to be a pattern based on particular foods. He has a very diverse and well-balanced diet, i.e. he doesn't get too much of any one thing, I don't over-do it with 'gas culprits' such as root veggies, etc.
Has anyone else's baby had persistent and unexplained wind that bothered them to as old as 10 months? Did anything help your baby? Did you find the 'missing piece' of the puzzle?
I don't want to see him have to put up with this anymore! There must be something I can do?!
I'd really appreciate hearing from anyone who has been here and come out the other side...or if you know someone who has.
Please don't respond unless you actually understand. I don't mean to sound rude, it's just that it's not helpful when people give an over-simplified answer to a complex problem. I'm sure we've all experienced that!
Anyway, hopefully someone can relate to what I'm putting down here.
