My baby boy has been having a terrible time with wind

Hello Alex,
I am sorry to trouble you with my concern- I have a 7 week old baby boy and we have been having a terrible time with wind. We started off with Gripe water and he got worse, then infacol and didn`t seen to do anything. Went to my local health nurse and she said he has silent reflux. I then went to my local doctor and she put him on Zantac- it has now been 3 days and I am finding he is not settling at all. Does massive farts and has poo`s with lots of pressure. He wants to feed every two hours. I am looking at him now on the bed and he always looks in pain while he trys to sleep. HELP HELP- am I getting the wrong advice what should I do- Thanks

Answer: Hi, Thank you for your enquiry. It is advisable to visit your local Early Childhood Health Centre for face to face advice and treatment. Reflux can be a difficult problem to solve and it takes a lot of patience and persistence to get the baby settled. The good news is that it should not be a long term problem. Best wishes, Alex (Glenda, our reflux panelist, may also be able to offer you some advice)
