Any suggestions, my little boy is waking frequently throughout the night with trapped wind more than hunger.

I had this problem for many months with my son. I was up all night with him bouncing and rocking him. Gripe water does work a lil bit but after awhile they get use to it in their system and it turns out only to be a treat lol!
Try a warm water bottle pressed up against his and your tummy when holding him(make sure that it is wrapped in a towel or something so its not too hott on him!). Do it before he goes to bed at night and in the middle of the night if needed.
I also found that holding my son firmly against my tummy putting pressure on is worked really well. Singing to my son every night helped take his mind of it, and as much as mum's tell you not too have music in your baby's room, I felt that it has helped a lot! My son is now 1 year and 8 months he still listens to music but i doesn't bother me or my husband. You just have to have patience and it will pass hun.
Hope I helped yah hun!
