Please can someone help, I am running out of ideas.
DS is 8weeks old and is full of wind and it is making him very uncomfortable and he isn’t sleeping. He is a reflux baby (but it is wind that is the problem not the reflux) and is EBF.
I do the following:
-give him infacol for every feed both day and night
-Feed so his head is higher than his bum
-Stop and wind him every 5minutes or so while feeding
-Keep him upright after his feeds
-I massage his tummy at least 3-4 times a day
-Lots of tummy time when we can get it in
-gripe water/wind drops when he won’t shift his wind
-he will take a dummy but sometime I wonder if this makes the situation worse. But it is screaming blue murder without it.
-Deep baths (this works well when he is upset)
Nothing seems to help and by the end of the day he is beside himself, because what he hasn’t managed to burp out is sitting low in his tummy. I just don’t know what else I can do to help him. He is constantly farting and sometimes they are really smelly. While he isn’t constipated he only poo’s every 3 or 4 days, which I am sure isn’t helping matters.
Does anyone have any ideas
