Hi I'd love others thoughts, help and suggestions please!
My 3 week old baby is awake a lot during the night (almost all of last night) grunting and groaning, sometimes crying out in terrible sounding pain.
It sounds a lot like he is struggling with trying to poo or pass wind...
It's killing us to listen to him struggle!!!

Have u tried anything like Infacol or anything? Not sure what the age restrictions are but our boy was colicky and that helped him do big Barney burps after feeding. Does your bub burp much after feeds?

My 11 week old is still like this. I alternate between infants friend and gripe water. Both help but neither eliminate the problem unfortunately. They tend to grow out of it

Infacol can be used for newborns, just check with your GP first. Our GP suggested adding about half a teaspoon of brown sugar to DS's bottle 3 times a day which seemed to help him

I used infants friend and when it was wind it helped. I will add though my DD did this for the first 5 weeks. She would make noises all night long and I read somewhere that it's common and they grow out of it and sure enough she stopped between6-8 weeks and now only grumbles when she's trying to poo at night.

Also is she awake or is she doing it in her sleep? My dd wasn't awake while make the noises.

Thanks for the replies!
We burp him during and after his feed, I'm thinking it is digestive wind from trying to poo rather than a need to burp, do infacol, infants friend etc work for this type of wind? Or is it just burping wind?
He does this in his sleep and can wake himself up often crying out, writhing and kicking his legs...

Infants friend helps with all sorts of wind and digestive pain, we used it a LOT with DS1 and it seemed to help as long as I kept the dosage up as soon as we slacked off he would be in pain again.. It didn't always work though. I think it's one of those things that babies go though, we used every thing we could gripe water, brown sugar, infacol, coloxyl everything and we found brown sugar and infants friend to work best.. All babies are different though! Good luck - hope it passes quickly for your bubba, it lasted just over 6 months for mine

I agree with PPs - they do eventually grow out of it as hard as it is at the time - it will pass. I found luck with infacol and infants friend. Also gently massaging their tummy while in the bath... Bicycle movements with their legs worked as well good luck x
