    I do bicycle legs on bubs and push her knees towards her chest this usually gets rid of the gas.

    Bicycle legs, rub tummy in a circular clockwise direction and warm baths have all helped when my bubs have had wind. DS1 was quite a windy baby and sometimes needed a little bit of Infant's Friend. I didn't give that to him until he was over about 2 months though and only if all other things failed.

    I found gripe water/ infants friend helped. You can get it at most supermarkets and pharmacies. You'll need a medicine dropper if you're not using a bottle. I tried the bicycle thing but it never helped not sure if I was doing it wrong lol. Or brauers colic relief was great too (comes with a dropper).

    Edit: I used this when's bubs was 3 weeks old no problems. All these had natural ingredients so it wasn't like I was doping dd up. Helped with constipation too

    A warm bath followed by a full body massage and bicycle legs should help.

    A girlfriend swears by gripe water.
    She just dips her DD's dummy in it.

    This.

    And the infants friend.

    Try and burp bub for longer after a feed. Even if you hear a burp, go for another one.

    Infants friend made all three of my kids scream the house down. It was awful! It draws all the air bubbles together into one big air bubble and I think for my bubs it was just too much. Tummy massage, legs, baths all helped. Also after feeding id slowly sit them up. Very slowly and that seemed to work.

    We found Brauers colic relief to be the best and DD doesn't mind the taste.


    Me + DH = DD 10 Months

    Hi try feeding, burping, feeding again. And burping for quite a while before u lay them flat. Also 10ml extra water if formula fed as some formulas are simply 2 heavy! Good luck!
