    Default wind!

    So my baby is only bf and he suffers from lots of wind, i was wondering if ther ewas somthing i could remove from my diet to help with this? its more bottom wind! and he does about 6/8 poo's a day!

    TMI!!! i also have lots of wind at the moment that is why i am thinking it is something i am eating, i eat a lot of oats! like A LOT! could this be what is causing the wind? when we take his nappy off its the best opportunity for him to stretch out and have a good fart! its so funny, but i dont like it when the wind causes him enough discomfort to wake him

    We had alot of probs with wind to with DD. She would do about 4 poos a day and all the sudden switched the other way and did maybe one poo a week...

    DD is a real farty bum- always farts. I help her move the wind by 'cycling' her legs when I change her nappy.

    Is DS's wind a problem? As in does it distress him?

    Lots of babies struggle with wind, but if you're struggling as well, then the oats might be having an effect. I used to eat oats all the time until I found out that DS2 is intolerant to them........since stopping eating them I've realised what an effect they were having on my body, and it wasn't good! I'm much better off without them, although I do miss them .

    Maybe you could try reducing the amount you eat for a week or so and see if you notice a difference in both of you?

    Sorry, I can't help you with what to eat etc but I always found with my babies that a massage was really good for wind.

    EEk, I didn't realise that oats could give babies wind! I eat a lot of them too and she is a real farty pants - and often wakes herself up trumping!!

    If DD is struggling, I giver her infacol and cycle her legs around a bit to get it moving. Also, one of the MCHN's that I saw ages ago told me to put her on her tummy after a feed because it dispells some of the bubbles. Missy hates tummy time though so that didn't really work for us. And who wants to lie on their tummy after a big dinner anyway? I wouldn't!!

    Infacol is good though hun.

    Hey there. Not sure if I am just silly for not having known this myself, but I was drinking a lot of sparkling mineral water when jazzy was little and she was very windy. Got told to cut that out and it did help a bit. However I think some babies are just windy babies regardless of what you eat. I ended up using massage and also a dummy to help move the wind when she was in pain.

    I've laid off the oats today and yesterday and the wind and poo has settled.

    The oats definately would be making him a little windy (and you ) but some bubbas are just windy anyway
    You'll find the poos will settle as he gets a little older... C was pooing every nappy change and then started stretching out to a few a day and then 1-2 a day which is where he's at now.

    I love it, what a great description! DD does this and it unsettlsd her feeding until the 'trumpeting' is over. It's taken me some time to understand this. I'm on an extreme high fibre diet so perhaps this is helping cause wind & wearer trumpeting together LOL.

    Glad you've seen a difference Lou you are getting into the whole intuative parenting - well done
