O is sometimes difficult to wind after feed. I try all different positions to get the burps out, infacol etc. I can spend an hour winding him and get not a single burp despite him panting and having all the windy face expressions. Any ideas we can try??

gripe water? I found this better than infacol with p. My friend swears by colief.
I struggle too but find over the sholder a better position and h holds her up and kind of bounces her wind out too!

I was thinking colief however he is already on comfort milk so that already has reduced lactose which is really all colief does, breaks down the lactose. May give gripe water a go, how does it work... Is it a seperate drink or added to their feed?

Can add gripe water to feed but always worked better straight after in its own. Binds wind together to hopefully get a big burp. Henry's never had much wind but a sure fire way which I didn't discover until a few moths ago is to sit him at a 90 degre angle. Legs flat out on sofa, held upright. I don't even have to pat his back but does help.

M doesn't burp easily either. I've noticed that if I happen to carry her up/down the stairs after a feed that she will let a big one out!

Another way is to put them in one arm facing down/out, head resting in the crook of your arm, arms and legs free. Rock side to side and pat. Osteo showed me that one
