My LO is 13 days old and due to a traumatic experience I had to switch to bottle feeding which wasn't part of the plan so I did very little research beforehand. I started him off on Cow & Gate first infant formula but then someone suggested Aptimel. So after a week of c&g we switched to Aptimel for hungry babies as he was having 90ml per feed but sometimes wanting another 90ml after half an hour. Since swapping I've noticed he has struggled to settle and doesn't like it when you lay him on his back. He doesn't scream or cry but goes very red and wriggles a lot and whimpers. My gut feeling is telling me it's nothing serious but should I change his formula back to c&g?? It also takes quite a while to wind him...sometimes over an hour and a half. Is there an effective way to relieve him of trapped wind? I have tried, sitting on my lap, whilst rubbing or tapping. Rolling him in a circle. Lying him over my shoulder, lying him on my chest and over my knee....but he just can't release it
