My little boy is almost 14mths old & still has terrible wind at night. He has always suffered from wind & we even changed his formula at just 2mths old. This helped but did not stop it. Through the day he is fine with it & can bring it up on his own with no problems. But maybe 3-4 nights out of 7 he gets unsettled & crampy & really struggles to pass wind or burp. Without trying to wake him completely i try lay him accross my laps on his tummy (used to help when he was younger) & patting his back, giving him some water & walking the halls with him over my shoulder. My mum tells me that he can't have wind at his age & he should have grown out of it at about 8mths. My little man was 5wks premmi & i wasn't sure if thats why he still struggles during the night or if it reflected diet?!
I try give him a healthy diet & he has alot of home-made food.
He starts his day with a bottle, then morning tea, afternoon tea, dinner & bottle for bed. He is on cows milk (still slightly dilluted with water). And he can have any of the following: home-made apple/pear puree, porridge, weet-bix, yoghurt, custard & fresh banana, a variety of biscuits/rusks, toast & home made vegies for dinner. He does not like juices or any flavoured liquids (not even hydralyte or pedialyte). He will only drink milk or water.
I try avoid high sugar foods or junk foods like chocolate, flavoured custards/mousse, chips etc
So my question is... What age do they stop having wind problems? Is it something they row out of? And can it be helped with diet??
