Ds is 12 days old and feeds well. However he is quite windy after feeds and more so the last couple of days. Ds1 was also ebf and never windy so it's new to me.

It's been taking me longer to settle him back to sleep as he's in sone discomfort. Also he's quite (very!) noisy with it so I spend the whole time worrying ds1 will wake up.

Any ideas on why he's so windy, and can I prevent it. Also best ideas to get wind up or foe something to give him?

Infacol. Was a lifesaver for me (my ds was ebf too).

Keep a food diary (of what you eat) as often things like onion or garlic can give EBF babies wind.

Try a bit of tummy massage before bed, there some good videos on baby massage on YouTube.

Have a Google of the "Tiger in the Tree hold" too smile

How on earth could onion digested by the mother give a baby wind? Does it make the milk fizzy?

I had to give up onion when I was feeding ds2. It made him so windy/colicky/miserable.

Interestingly enough he's intolerant to onion.

Food you eat can upset your baby, bland is better. I couldn't eat green peppers (still can't)

I had this problem with my ebf son-I had very fast let down and he was gulping to keep up and taking down lots of air I think. I started taking a bit more time burping him and also put one of those foam wedges under the cot mattress (not sure if you're co sleeping?) which seemed to help. He grew out of it by 2-4 months (can't quite remember it's a bit of a blur!)

Thanks all. I got some infacol yesterday, he's not keen on it......and am taking plenty of time to burp him. He did 4 rather large burps this evening after feeding.

He's in a sleepyhead on my bed at night, and I have put a small cushion under the head so he is a bit raised.

He does gulp a bit at times.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

If he's gulping, it's worth getting him checked for tongue tie smile

I don't think he's got a tongue tie, he can stick it out quite a kit, and it makes the normal shape when he cries. I think the gulping noise is his breathing when the milk is coming quite fast, it doesn't go on for long.
