Do you wind yours after breastfeeding?

My friend has pointed out that I don't wind my dd3, 4 months old, after breastfeeding and maybe she has wind (as fussing terribly after going to bed at night).
TBH I never really winded any of mine except in the very early days and now think maybe I missed something vital!!!
Do you?

I just read winding as "winding" like a clock!? am breast feeding!

Never really bother, my dd seems to just produce copious amounts of bottom wind.
Easy to try and see if it helps- some babies seem to need winding, some don't.

Didn't with dd1 and ds2, but dd2 nearly always needs it. She is a faster feeder and gulps air too....

nah, except for token effort occasionally

Not really, however DS2 does need it sometimes. I can tell because he wriggles around and pulls off the breast.
Sitting him up is normally enoguh for him to burp though.

Not with DS1 but DS2 was a bit of a gulper. However, he was more likely to bring his milk back up than burp so I tried not to if he seemed happy enough.
