    Default Windy bub

    I have a 6 week old boy and he was breastfed until 3 1/2 weeks and my supply didn't keep up, so he went to Formula (Karicare STAGE 1). I have noticed about 1 1/2- 2 hrs after a feed he will get wind terribly and it will disturb his sleep. I have him on infant friends too. My DS 4 when he was a bub, had bad wind + projectile vomiting and reflux and the chemist suggested Karicare de lact which worked wonders for him . I never did have him tested to see if he had a lactose issue. I'm wondering if I should put my 5 week old on de lact to see if it helps. It's terrible watching the poor guy in pain.

    Hi luminary, my dd1 was very windy almost from birth as well so I know what you are going through - have you tried infacol?

    You give 0.2mls before each feed and it joins all the little bubbles together into a big one. Dd is almost 8 months and I am still scared to stop it lol.

    We also had to switch around formulas ending in a prescription formula with no cows milk in it.

    Maybe try delact if you think that would work? Or i think allerpro is another option as it only has 5% cows milk protein.

    Another option is find a formula with a higher whey/casein ratio. Those are the HA brands or friends of ours had success with s26 comfort which is also whey dominant. Whey is a lot easier to digest than casein so can cause less discomfort.

    It takes at least 2 weeks for a formula to clear a system so whichever you try, try to allow at least that time to decide of it is working. I remember 2 weeks is a long time for an unsettled baby.

    Good luck!!!!
