Ladies please share your winding techniques with me, I'm really struggling to get O's wound up and out. Thanks x

I sometimes used to lay them on my knees on their bellys and rub the back. My mum always lifts them high up a couple of times and brings them down slowly for the gravity to help. Over the shoulder really is the one though I think

Usually sat up with hand under chin but if i was struggling over the shoulder and quite firmly rubbing up and down. Dont forget the muslin though!
Glad you posted this munchkin... My little h falls asleep on my shoulder when I'm trying to wind him and then I put him down and he wakes again.. I do wind him a couple of times during a feed and usually get a burp when I sit him forward on my lap..

I tap W's back rhythmically for a minute or so and then rub his back in an upwards direction, or in circular motion. I read that lying them on their backs and making cycle motions with their legs can help too. Also lying them on their tummy the length of your arm and rubbing can sometimes help. W is a nightmare to get wind from. So I can sympathise!

If love I be able to do a few winds during O's feed however he doesn't go back to finish the feed if you take the bottle out of his mouth!

We were recommended to lie him down on our knees face up for a little bit then slowly bring him back up to sitting. I would usually do this a couple of times at the end of the feed. I can't wind during a feed as all I get is screaming!

Watching with interest! Although since seeing the cranial osteopath this week S is significantly easier to wind. We usually lay flat then put him over the shoulder. H also bounces on the gym ball with him

Infacol really helps P but you have to use it before every feed and every day as it needs to build up.
Another technique is to sit them on your lap facing you and gently twist their upper body from side to side. The best one for P is lifting her up high and slowly lowering.

umm sometimes it would be half an hour or more and he is a BF baby who we kept being told wouldn't have wind.
lying stomach down over knee rubbing back
lying baby on back and leg cycling or rubbing around babies tummy in a clockwise direction.
giving him to grandpa who seems to have a special knack
umm and we had a special winding song tat seemed to work too but can make you feel a bit crazy

In addition to many of the above we would sit J on our laps facing us, and circle his upper body round (like he was hula hooping with his chest) which sometimes helped.

Again with gravity in mind, walking up stairs with baby over shoulder.

I sit H up, one hand under her chin, the other on her back. Do nothing... usually works treat.
