I have a 10 day old DD who has trouble bringing up wind.
My DS who is now 15mo had trouble too but I can't remember if I did anything or it just became easier for him.
When I was in hospital, DD was crying after a feed, had a hard belly and was kicking and I was rubbing and gently patting her back and a nurse commented on DDs crying I said 'it's wind I think' and she looked at me like I was nuts and said 'breastfeeding babies don't really get wind'
Now I'm not an overly confident mother so this has thrown me off.
My DD has been fussy and I'm trying to burp her but it's not working, I have tried up on my shoulder and in my lap but it only seems to work sometimes Other times I can be doing this for 10 - 15 minutes but nothing happens?
What else can I do or is this more of a phase we need to get through.
Also, she spits up sometimes, which I thought might be because of wind pockets but I have been told it can be because she's had too much milk?
ny advice would be great.

If you feel it is wind it prob is !!! I remember the day I was told by a Mhn that there was no such thing as colic - umm ok could you please let my 6wk old ds know ... He has been screaming for 4 weeks now!!
I think they need to be 4 wks for infacol; but you could try infants friend - homeopathic one from chemist - my son used to do sweet cinnamon burps with that!
Also could be an issue with lactose!???? If his tummy is hard
Good luck and go with your gut feeling x

My BF DS got wind sometimes. Not always but he did. Definitely go with your instincts!

My bub is 29 days old fully breastfed and has pretty bad wind and my gp says it's normal.
I feed him upright and infants friend dipped on his dummy after a feed with back rubs to help him relax and not hold it in.
Go with what you feel is right =)
GL hun. Xx
