It really won't make any positive difference. Agree there are alternative remedies to try , like massage, change position for burping, fennel tea etc. If he is bottlefed maybe the formula is not best suited to him.
Who recommended you give her water? Generally if it wasn’t a midwife or doctor and the advice as here is against the medical sdvice, I wouldn’t follow it. Trust the people with lots of experience of babies and who have read all the scientific research.
Same with my little girl she mainly farts instead of burping it up, but the straining to get the fart out is really upsetting as she gets so distressed.
Bicycling feet really helps too... in the early days of DS2, it was a source of great competition - who could get him to fart the most... He was a windy little thing, carrying him around the house was like holding a bagpipe!
If you have a baby bouncer / seat with a vibrate function on it, try that. It used to work for DS, but not coolec water. Cooled water with a bit of sugar is suggested as a cure for bottle fed constipation but not wind.
Yes. I have given both mine a couple of sips of cooled boiled water to ease constipation. This was recommended to me by the nurses after the babies left hospital. Just don’t give them gallons of the stuff! Don’t think it will help with wind though, infacol is your best bet.
