When you’ve fed your baby, it’s always a good idea to burp them, which can help to reduce trapped wind.
Winding your baby helps wind to move through their digestive system so they can pass it more easily, preventing bloating and irritation.
If your baby often suffers from trapped wind, you may want to consider sitting or holding them upright during feeds, as this can help to keep them from swallowing air.
It’s thought that the cause of colic could be a digestive issue, so if you find that your baby has colic, you may want to consider whether they’re suffering from trapped wind.
If you think your baby has colic, indigestion, or any other health condition, speak to your doctor or other health care professional for advice.
