Baby gulping bottle and getting bad wind

Anyone got any advice, my two week old baby gulps her bottle and gulps air so much you can hear it bubbling in her tummy. She then gets so uncomfortable with wind and often is sick. I've tried the anti colic bottles, burping her really regularly and only at the end of feed. Not sure what else to do and seems to be getting worse. Any ideas?! TIA

Has anyone mentioned the possibility of tongue tie? I'm not saying it is that but it might be worth reading this and see if any of it sounds familiar smile

They've checked that when she was in hospital and she doesn't have one. So upsetting when she seems so uncomfortable ����

Have you tried a bottle/teet with a smaller size of hole?

We have been using Tommie tippee slow flow and ones, bought some doctor Brown ones today but no joy. Wonder if it's worth trying a medium flow teet??

Who checked it in hospital? If it the hcp just had a quick look in the mouth, it's unlikely that they could diagnos it properly.

There's a whole bunch of us on here who were told emphatically that our DC didn't have tt, only to find out later that they did.

Might be worth having a read of the link smile

Dr Brown bottles, available in Boots etc have a straw like tube inside the bottle which slows them down and stops them getting so much wind. Think the teats are in 2 sizes depending on age.

Sorry just noticed your dr Brown comment

We had similar with Ds - have you tried infacol? It worked wonders for us and at 4 months he's still on it (ok from birth)

Not sure the OP is coming back OhFour. Love the name though grin

Hi all thanks for your comments. On infacol now so see if that helps. Interesting about the tounge tie, I'll ask the health visitor about it. Tried the bottles but seems the problem is her, not the bottle.

Have you tried paced bottle feeding where you hold baby in more of an upright position. We recommend it for breast fed babies as it helps baby control the flow of milk. There is a lot of links and videos online.

I'll have a look at the videos, thanks
