i put gripe water in my 10month olds bottles he usually gets very windy before bed so i give him a top up so he won't wake up screaming in pain at night.

Hi Becki, try Infacol, brilliant product that you can buy from the supermarket. You put drops in his bottle or mouth before breastfeeding. Try to sit him up halfway btwn feeds, worked for my children. I also found laying my daughter on my lap, feet facing toward me then moving her legs around helped. Also rubbing her tummy then putting her over my shoulder was quite effective. Good luck, hope it helps :-)

my sont is almost 7 months and he still does that. we drive with the windows up and use the hood on his carrier when we are out. a blanket works if we are carrying him.
