If you can try infacol (think that's the name) you get it in the chemist anyway, white bottle grey handle. Give her some before the bottle.

You could also prop her up a bit after a feed might help bring it up (or down!)

Hope its not too bad xx

Heya jellybeans my son suffered terrible with this if you lie the baby Down and row the baby's legs like a cycling motion and gently push both them up into her belly it should help her fart and brake wind. It worked great for my lo. Hope its helps

As far as I know you can.my fella had trapped wind and it was the nurse who told me about it but check with chemist. They'll tell you for sure.....now I'll warn you, my fella was never great at bringing it up but it made him poo and the wind came out that way.

I dont mind if she has a poo to get the wind out lol, shes just not herself at all.and she really is a happy baby normally.any idea why trapped wind would suddenly kick in on day 9 when before this she was great at getting up wind??

Glad to hear shes better hun. Juat make sure to give it before every single feed or it wont work properly ;) I was terrible for remembering on ds1! I keep ds2 propped up after a feed now for about 20 mins, hes here after a dreamfeed and without even rubbing his back he fot it up himself after about 10 mins of sitting up properly, in his sleep too lol! Shes at that stage where they tend to hold onto the wind, hope she goes back to her old self soon. watching them with trapped wind is terrible!

My 2 months old son had severe gas pain and was not passing gas. He used to scream bloody murder with wind. After trying lots of remedies finally we got luck with Babies magic tea.
