windy before milk comes in?

Anyone had this? Merryn has a whiffy bottom, but also has woken herself up being Sicky from wind tonight, with a refusal to let it out. Her trying to swallow it back has made it quite scary and chokey, but trying to wind her after a feed is high on impossible. Any ideas?

Have you tried winding her sitting on your lap, hands on chest and back, and sort of circling her torso? That was most effective for B when he was holding it.

Thanks;yes, we have. It worked a treat for Iona. Have tried lots of ideas from here. Its just so early on for such deep windiness!

How is the feeding going so far?
O seemed colicky and unsettled/uncomfortable shortly after birth, I was still in hospital. A mum in the next bay suggested that had colic but I just smiled and nodded whatever. Turned out he had a tongue tie and his particular latch meant he was taking in a lot of air. Even burping him didn't always work.
He still wretches on what sounds like silent reflux too often for my liking :(

Have you checked for tongue and lip ties? *paranoid*

Yes, that was going to be my next question... Hope it's not.

If you exclude tongue tie, Dylan and Elsie always winded best completely upright. Wrap her up in thosovely vanilla roses and walk her round.

Could you try some infacol? I am not totally convinced by it but I think it helped a bit. It's not absorbed, it just helps the bubbles of wind clump together to get out I think.
