Does your baby do this too?

Dd2 is almost 3 months.. She is EBF..
A lot of the time when she is laying flat in her back, in the bouncer chair of car seat, she cries out whilst pulling her knees up and chin down to her knees.. And kinda holds her breath... Curls up basically.. She does it all the time and goes red in the face, and seems quite uncomfy, is this wind? What is it? I can never get any burps up when she does this tho, but when she feeds I can hear like a bubble thing in her tummy... Because of this she doesn't seem happy or relaxed in any of above positions. She has slept on her front from 3 weeks as always woke up in her back..
Does this straining type thing stop? She does it al the time, and normally cries after a while of being in those positions... Any one else with this experience??

Sounds like either colic or reflux. It will help her lying in a slight recline. Speak to your HV about baby gaviscon, this might help.

But that's the thing, slight recline doesn't help, as the Bouncer chair and car seat are all at a slight recline!!

have you tried giving her infacol or colief before each feed? I've found this really helps getting the trapped air out with my little one.

I would try infacol. It really helped.
you can try feeding with baby sitting up to help reduce wind although I never really got the hang of it.

So it's wind then? I give her gripe water after each feed, so pretty sure am getting wind up.. Tried infacol, didn't like it...
