    Default Wind

    What's the best thing to help get rid of wind in a BF baby?

    A friend recommended Infacol and my mum has mentioned gripe water in a bottle. How does that work with BF'ing though?

    DD rarely cries but the last 3 days it's all she's done due to the antibiotics I'm on for my c-section infection. I spoke to the paediatrician and he said DD would get used to it. Initially she was projectile vomiting, now it's obvious intense pain from her wind. I'm not sure what's worse to witness DD also has diarrhea.

    I've burped her for easily half an hour and it still doesn't come up. Please help.

    You just syringe the appropriate dose into their mouth during or after a BF. I used infacol and infants friend in tandem during the early months. Now, at 5 months, DD doesn't need the assistance - she's a champion belcher. Good luck.

    A syringe with dose markings is included in the infacol box, but not infants friend. I have heard good things about gripe water and would have used it probably if the first two were unsuccessful. All these liquids do essentially is combine all the small air bubbles into a larger bubble, making them easier to expel in a decent burp.

    My friend recommends Champions Wind Mixture. She used it with her baby when he had colic. You can only get it from Blooms Chemist in Edgecliff, Sydney. They do deliver it though if you can't get there. I haven't had to use it yet luckily but she swears by it. They'll also send you a syringe and can send via express post.

    You can get in infacol from the supermarket and infants friend from chemists. DS2 was hideously windy and infacol is what worked best for us. Good luck and I hope your baby gets some relief soon.

    Lots of people swear by infacol but some studies have shown it to be no more effective than distilled water. Doesn't do anything for DD. we used infants friend and it worked well, plus lots of probiotics, both for antibiotic treatment, and for CS.

    I kept a bottle of gripe water in the fridge and had to use it twice when dd had terrible wind. It really worked for her.
