I am after some advice as my little 14 week old is getting "wind" which seems to be getting worse as time goes on. He has always suffered from this but mostly burps which are quite easy to resolve for him. In the beginning we tried Infacol which had some affect then stopped working. We also tried Colief for a time but again with limited affect. The wind that really troubles him and seems to be getting worse is when he gets "bottom wind" as I am unable to help with with it. I find cool boiled water helps a bit although I've been told by the HV not to give water. When I am breastfeeding him he seems to be troubled by this wind almost immediately he starts feeding and I have to stand up and walk around, rocking him etc before he can continue feeding. Sometimes changing to the other breast works but what I really cannot understand is that if I give him a bottle (I am doing combined feeding) he will almost grab the bottle and drink it straight down without the slightest hind of wind even if he is crying out with discomfort before I give him the bottle. It doesnt seem to be affected by what I eat as it is now happening most days. He is occasionally sick but not that often. I am not sure if it is wind, colic or reflux and not sure what to do about it. He literally screams, goes red in the face and kicks his whole body around, sometimes grabbing at my hair in frustration. The awful thing is that he seems to have less symptoms when taking the formula. There have a been a couple of occasions when my milk supply hasnt been that great due to starting my period very early on and have had to resort to formula and his symptoms have actually improved which doesnt make any sense.
Any help you can offer would be very much appreciated as it breaks my heart to see him in such discomfort and I just want to help him.
Thanks A xxx
