My 5 week old seems to be in discomfort quite a lot of the time. It looks like trapped wind as she stretches her legs out and arches her back and strains and cries. It's really distressing as there's not much I do that helps. I have started giving her infacol before feeds and winding her a few times during feeds. She does plenty of burps - Do you think it might be reflux? She spits up after feeds but not a lot - just excess milk I think. She does have frequent hiccups too but she had that from when she was inside me! I have been told it will pass but any advice would be greatly appreciated. It's really horrible to see her cry so much and I've started feeling guilty feeding her as I think she will feel uncomfortable afterwards
