Gripe Water in Bottle?

My 5 week old suffers terribly from trapped wind. I started her on infacol before feeds which seems to make a huge difference however every few days she seems to suffer with a build up of wind that infacol cant get rid of. I have given her gripe water a couple of times after feeding however this seems to make her sick as she burps so violently clearing the wind. I was thinking of trying gripe water in her bottle once or twice a day to try and prevent the wind build up. Does anyone else do this? I use the Perfect Prep machine so at which point would be best in the bottle making process to add the gripe water?

The advise says not but I don't know why. You can give it before the bottle but I used to prefer to do it mid feed.

Babies being sick when bringing up wind is normal.

Gripe water isn't suitable below 3 months, is it?

Have you tried cycling her legs/rubbing her tummy (clockwise)?

If you're adding anything to a bottle (not sure that's a good idea but I didn't formula feed so early) add it after it's made otherwise the water won't be hot enough to kill any nasties.

I use perfect prep machine and add gripe water in the bottle at very end before I screw teat back on to shake.
