hi, LO is 11 days old and not settling at night. I have been up with her grizzling since 1am and am dead on my feet as I dont/can't sleep in the day I think it may be trapped wind that she is grizzlig about, the mw told me to give her infacol but I have just read the packet and it says befor every feed. She probably won't feed for another 2 hrs, can I not administer it now or do I have to wait before the feed?
If I have to wait is there anything else I can do to aid her wind problem if that's what it is
Try holding her between your thighs so that her tummy is on one leg and her bottom on the other leg then jiggle or rub her back. This position always helped my DD, I think it was the pressure on her tummy that seemed to push the wind out.
Babies of this age do sometimes grizzle and writhe at night - and in the day Usually the 'thing' that's bothering them is their need to be held close and not to be expected to sleep alone in a basket/crib, and they like to have the breast 'on tap' at all times
