i breast fed both my daughters. My first daughter suffered terribly with trapped wind and colic and so this time i decide to eliminate dairy products from my diet to see if that helped. I have to say it made a massive difference!!!! still breastfeeding at 5 1/2 months and no sign of colic or reflux or any of the other horrible things we had last time. i also regularly massaged both my girls tummies and found this to be a great reliever it needs to be done regularly and not just in times of discomfort. also infacol and constant winding seem to be key. its a battle but things will improve as they get bigger and stronger and their digestive system matures. hope that helps!!

I struggled with a very windy breastfed baby too, I wondered if there was an element of reflux and tried everything including coleif, infacol, gaviscon.
My mom in law advised me to use a sling. I used one of those long fabric ones that you wrap round and didn't use a pram . I used it in the house as well. Being upright and jiggled round with a bit of pressure on her tummy seemed to help the wind and her digestion, it was the only solution which has worked so far .

i tried everything and found that baby massage before it got too bad helped. I would do it at about 5pm to aid digestion and that really helped, if i left it much later it seemed to be too late. I used all the massages explained above. It may have been a coincedence and could have been growing out of it but on the nights that I managed to do it earlier she didn't scream.
