I had the same promblem with Olivia, was giving her infacol, trying various positions and for extended periods of time. Nothing was working and I was getting frustrated as she was uncomfortable and so unsettled. A family friend recommended that I take her to a cranial osteopath. It was the best thing I did, she now brings up wind on her own, and only takes a couple of pats if she is having trouble. She is also sleeping twice as long as she was before and doesn't get the hiccups as often. I know its not everyones cup of tea, but it seriously worked and it doesn't hurt bubs!!

I used to wind my first daughter for about an hour to get her wind up, as Laurian said, various positions work well. With Amethyst I've found lying her down flat on her back helps to dislodge the wind slightly and then to try any combination of positions helps to bring it up.
If all else fails, once baby turns 1 month gripe water works really, really well!

I am having the same problem but finding that patience and different positions help. Like over the shoulder with patting and rubbing, alternating, sitting on my lap with one hand supporting her chin and patting and rubbing, and lying down for a minute then sitting up again and also over the lap. Anything that makes their belly warm seems to work but it takes a long time. Good luck

Is there any wind there to bring up? Some babies dont need winding at all.
I pat Madelyne's back well over my shoulder and if that fails rub her back up and down between patting. If all else fails, a little tummy time over your lap is sure to bring up wind if it's there for extraction :D
