Seems gassy a lot? And unsettled after feeding.

I think the first 2 weeks of babies lives is spent recovering from the birth. Then they wake up, notice more and need you for comfort as well as sustenance. It's quite a developmental stage and their tiny tummies are becoming more used to be stretched.
Basically it's normal. Are you BF or FF?
You might need to change positions to suit LO better and try to wind half way through. You could also encourage the wind out by sitting baby on your lap facing you, hold around tum and rotate gently, as if they're doing a hula sorting down. And for lower trapped wind try lying baby on back and lifting legs up like riding a bicycle. Congratulations and good luck.

This is what I've been doing. He'll feed but will doing in cluster form and not seem satisfied until a few goes until he gets "the cream"..

He's very chilled at the same time but when he's just fed he doesn't want to be put down really. I enjoy the snuggles but also have two small children to tend to..smile

He's breastfed. He brings up wind well but especially at night I think it's his grumbly tummy wind that's waking him.

He's now three weeks old and gets fussy at the breast. He'll go on, feed. Then come off to burp because of the fast let down. Then want to go in again but sucks and doesn't settle. Just faffs about on and off a lot. ???
