    Default Newborn not bringing up wind

    I know this is probably normal I just wanted to hear from others who have had similar babies.
    My ds 2 is 6 days old now and so far exclusively bf. My milk came through about 3 days ago and my supply has been a bit too good! I had to express yesterday due to engorged boobs and got 100mls. The midwife is happy ds is feeding well and advised expressing a bit first to get rid of fore milk so baby can get good feed.

    Baby is not brilliant at latching but is getting better and is definitely taking milk in and seeming satisfied. The only problem is he absolutely hates being winded and I'm not getting any burps. Although I'm trying not to stress as he's so young he does squirm and seem very uncomfortable at times before passing poo. (Normal looking yellow seedy poo).

    Wondering if he's getting trapped wind or whether some bf babies just don't produce much?

    I never burped either of my bf babies nor did I express that foremilk. Just fed them as needed.

    My dd never needed burping and didnt like it when you tried. She just had a feed and laid down straight after. Ds on the other hand needed to be burped.
    If bub is happy with what your doing atm just keep going with that

    If you are worried you can also just move their legs in a bicycle motion when he looks uncomfortable during bowel movements....

    Don't worry about expressing the fore milk- it's all good stuff!
    A midwife told me with my first not to worry about burping if it isn't causing them any pain- it all works out in the end. If they don't burp after the feed, they will fart it out later.

    Perfectly said. You DON'T have to burp a bf baby. Only if bub needs it.

    CONGRATULATIONS! First of all

    I agree with this. Both my kids needed to be burped as they both had silent reflux. DS is 9 months and STILL needs burped. In fact if he doesn't burp after a night feed, he's crying 40 minutes later and I need to burp him.

    If he's not doing any and hates it, I too wouldn't stress.
