My little girl is 15 weeks old , bf and has always had tummy troubles, she burps well has gained weight very well but has problems passing wind from her botty!
She is waking around 10 times a night at the moment as she wriggles in pain then the wind comes out (sounds very forceful) but the only thing to sooth her from screaming and get her back to sleep is to put her on the boob to comfort.
She has always liked to comfort on the boob and this is the only way I can get her asleep (although her dad and nanny can rock her to sleep)
She seems like shes hungry all the time but gets so tired she falls asleep during a feed therfore has loads of smaller ones during the day. Her nappies are fine.
I have tried Tummy calm, gripe water and ashton and partons (as I think shes teething early) nothing makes a difference. I have recently stopped all dairy to see if this helps but not so far. Am I doing something wrong? I would be very grateful for any suggestions or support as I'm starting to feel like a zombie and very emotional from the lack of sleep. thanks :)

Oops! Thanks for your response, I have been trying to steer clear of medicines as I prefer natural remedies but I think I will try this soon as I obviously dont want her to be in pain. I still think the issue is the build up of wind rather than colic as she doesn't cry much at all, only when I don't comfort her on the boob when shes tired, I have been lead to believe that colic is inconsolable crying?
