I have a 2 week old baby and I'm BFing her. I'm now nearly 2 days into a 7 day course of antibiotics (for me - infected tear stitches) and they're making her really windy to the point she's sobbing crying. Is there anything I can do to help her?

Think she's too little for gripe water think that's from 4 weeks
Tummy massage
Bicycle legs
Lots n lots of winding in various positions

Thanks. I feel so bad for her. She's in pain because of something being done to fix me sad

My dd had terrible wind and is just starting to get a little better. It is awful seeing them screaming when trying to pass it. I was so distressed. Infacol definitely helped. We used colactase drops as well. She is getting much better now at 14wks.

You can give her probiotics to protect her gut - I used these with my baby who was a bit older but I remember they said can be used from birth -

And try not to feel guilty. You wouldn’t be much good to her with a raging infection would you smile
