10 month old gas and wind all night every night

Hi Guys,

hoping to find someone that’s been in a similar situation to me and came out the other side! My little boy has is 10 months and has been a very gassy windy baby since he was about 6 weeks old. To cut a very long story short I wasn’t given any support just told it’s an immature digestion problem etc.

I do think it’s possibly something to do with the milk, he’s been on lots including partially hydronalised and now amino acid with some improvement but definitely not right.

I waited 5 months for a dietician appointment, had a phone call last week and she basically said she couldn’t help me and to go back to the gp to review and be referred to a gastro paediatrician to rule out any health problems.

He absolutely loves food, but unfortunately during the night it doesn’t like him, he gets trapped wind and what looks like cramps, he doesn’t have runny nappies, or blood, mucus nappies, what could be causing this?


im worried that he will turn 1 in a few months and there’s only a few foods that doesn’t make things a lot worse, want to make sure he has the right nutrition.

Ive tried, lactose free, goat, non dairy, amino acid, probiotics, gas drops you name it!

sorry for such a long post if you got this far!
Thank you x

I agree with dietitian that you should seek referral to gastro paed.
My ds has chronic illness, which took months to get diagnosed, going back and forth to gp and a&e.
Once finally been referred to paed and problem was found, everything started to fall into places. And we had great help from dietitian, after the problem was found.

Hi @grapehyacinthisactuallyblue

thanks for your reply, can I ask what I ended up being?

My ds had an illness that can be diagnosed by simple ultrasound. GP couldn't, and 3 trips to A&E didn't. They didn't offer ultrasound, just gave him a painkiller etc, and sent home.
I don't blame them, they are either incapable to diagnose(GP), or stretched(A&E) so, they couldn't diagnose him with something like pain that comes and goes.

But the simple fact was, once it was diagnosed, it was easy to treat(with surgery, so not as in nothing to worry about), but if we didn't pursue, he could have ended up for waiting list for transplant, or dead, in my ds's case.

The UK medical system is great, but not so great if you have something unusual and rare. You, as a parent, need to keep pushing, for the sake of your child. It could be something simple, it could be something rare. Until you find the cause of your child's suffering, you need to be that parent.

Have you tried a gluten and grain free, dairy free diet? My daughter improved on this after suddenly becoming intolerant to known foods. Fridababy windii provides great colic relief in the short run.
