Unsettled BF baby- what foods should I cut out?

My 10 week DD is unsettled at night and awake and grumbling after her 2.30ish feed until about 6 - she's definitely not hungry so I think she might be windy. I am going to cut out dairy, chocolate and wine for the next few days to see if it helps- anything else I should avoid or any other theories as to why she could be so unsettled?

Possibly just a phase or a growth spurt.
I tried cutting foods out. Made no difference and made me bloody miserable.
No wine or cheese!!? Hah, not my style!

Is it possible that she is getting more than enough sleep during the day, so she isn't needing so much at night? (sorry if that sounds obvious, I am sure you have thought of it already, hope I haven't offended you!)

Anything in the onion family - leeks, garlic etc as well as broccoli and cauliflower. Hope it works

Orange juice?

spicy food maybe although I pretty much ate what I wanted to.

I've heard caffeine is worth cutting, so tea and coffee as well as chocolate. Cabbage is meant to be a problem for many, as are apples and grapes.

That being said, neither of my kids ever cared what I ate. Their guts are still new at this age and get upset really easily, it probably isn't your diet.
