Weaning and terrible wind all night

Have started weaning baby properly in the last couple of days. Yesterday he had some plum porridge for breakfast, banana and a baby rice cake for lunch and bio plain organic yoghurt and a rice cake for dinner. Day before he had porridge for breakfast, no lunch and turnip and butternut squash for dinner, days before were similar. He is currently waking very regularly during the night farting loudly and crying. Will this improve on its own or should I be feeding him differently. Started weaning with just tiny bits of pureed fruit and veg once a day a couple of weeks ago and the wind is just getting worse and worse. His sleeping has always been bad, but now its getting worse. The farting seems to be bad regardless of what he eats btw.

hi goodname - my dd1 had the same problem once i started weaning, it didn't seem to make much difference what she had she suffered with terrible wind. I tried fennel tea with her, just normal organic tea bags, made it very weak & offered it to her instead of water with meals. It seemed to help a bit. I know with her I kept notes of what she ate & there didn't seem to be any obvious culprit although lots of windy veg did make it worse than usual. Sorry I can't offer any more help!

For what its worth I started with the Plum porridge too and my DD (26 weeks) is really fussy and uncomfortable with lots of tummy rumbling...I wondered if its because its wholegrain and harder to digest? But youre doing fruit and veg too so maybe its all foods at the beginning confused...

DS is 7 months and we are having the same problem... Gave him a bit of fennel tea during the day, as well as Infacol and hope it helps... He doesn't have any of the "windy veg" but it didn't solve the problem (he has wholegrain rice though). I'll be watching this thread...
