Maybe some cool boiled water or a little bit of prunes. If he doesn't seem in pain and if he is breastfed then I wouldnt worry to much. If he is in pain I always found that laying them on their backs and pumping their legs like a bicycle helped alot.

Well I thought about prunes but how many..??? Don't want to overdose him (results could be catastrophic!!!) He seems to be really uncomfortable at times and then it goes again so guess depends on his positioning... think I will be bicycling his little legs in the morning...

WSS, adding a wee tick of brown sugar to the water will help x

Health visitor suggested freshly squeezed orange juice in cooled boiled water to us, I can't remember how much though think it was a tiny amount oj to an oz of water. Also rubbing the tummy in a clockwise direction can help.

We were told either brown sugar or freshly squeezed orange juice in cooled boiled water (although if you're past sterilising age then I think just tap water would be fine) by a gastroenterologist. Prune juice, dried fruit, particularly apricots seem to work well too.

A deep warm bath and clockwise tummy rub and good old bicycle legs. Hope he feels better soon. :hug:
