My baby is 2 weeks old and has really bad trapped wind problems that make him really cry in pain till he poos or farts a lot. We have tried all different winding methods and rubbing tummy, back, warm hot water bottle etc. Can any one offer other advice on how we can help him as it is horrible seeing him go all red a struggle. When he does poo it often shoots out in a jet and then he is fine!!!
I used a burping technique where I sat DS on my lap and rotated his torso in a clockwise direction from the hips (facing forward all the time iyswim) until he did a gigantic belch that a 16 stone brickie would be proud of! There's a surprising amount of gas that builds up inside their tiny bodies.
