    LoCo are you in Perth? Padbury Pharmacy are meant to do some amazing wind relief remedy. Haven't tried it but heard good things.

    Infants friend.

    I've used it on ds since a week old. It's excellent.

    Oh ye, just remembered...

    Wen ds was 2wks old I rang Ngala for help on the windiness and this is what they told me...

    It's your letdown, that initial fore milk is very lactosy. So if you can express a bit out before you give bub your noob, some of that lactose is expelled and so they don't get as much pain. Just a quick hand express will do.

    It should settle down by about 6-8 weeks.

    We took DD to the osteopath last week - seems to gave made some improvement to her gas/reflux, also infacol seems to work well for us too. Interesting the osteopath reckons ivf babies need a bit more "balancing" than others - if natural therapies are something you want to pursue. Ooh and if I eat pulses like lentils it wreaks havoc with her guts!

    Hi Loco, hope all is going well ๐Ÿ˜Š
    I had a lot of trouble with this and my first and my paed suggested block feeding. https://www.breastfeeding.asn.au/bfi...verload-babies
    My little guy is windy but not as bad as his sis was. I am using infants friend. Don't think you can use Infacol until 1 month. I am having lots of trouble getting burps up! Night time is hard when he is gets tr wind pain and is very uncomfortable. A dummy worked well with my DD to help pass the wind. Can't get DS to take one ๐Ÿ˜•. Also saw an osteopath with DD and had to cut back on the chocolate.
    Hope it improves soon!

    Just for interest's sake, our GP and the MCHN both said that Infacol is fine for under a month with a half dose, just in case anyone's tried it and is now freaking out :-)

    Try giving infants friend at least 15 min before a feed and then straight after. That's what worked for my DD. Also bicycle legs and try raising bassinet slightly. Good luck!

    I'm wondering if wind is causing DS to be unsettled. He's usually really settled for the first half of the day and then cluster feeds & cries a lot in the afternoon/evening. I keep freaking out, remembering how awful it was when DD was a baby with horrible silent reflux before we knew she was CMPI. When DS is unsettled I just can't help automatically thinking it's the same thing again!

    Loco - does your DD squirm and kind of strain & grimace with it? How long does it last and how do you know it's not reflux or something else?

    Cue yea def wind as dd1 was reflux and that was completely different as she'd cry in pain. This baby doesn't cry unless there's that wind and once she burps or pops off she stops with relief. Anyway dear god hope it's not reflux.
