    Hi, Charlotte is generally a really happy baby. During the day the only time she really cries is when she has wind. She can burp just fine after a feed, but she seems to get tummy ache then cries, but after a series of good 'farts' she settles well. She is pooing ok.
    I just wondered if i could position her differently when i notice her getting like this, or do you give them anything for it?
    Any advice?

    Hi again :)

    Olivia is sometimes like this, HV said to rub tummy in clockwise direction (something about direction of the bowels?) and this does sometimes help her.

    Sarah - didn't know about bicycle wheel motion - will try that as well

    I would get the legs and bend them up and them pull them back down and do this a few times slowly. Also the ride a bike thing. Do you know that when adults do a poo we sould do it with our legs raised up slightly on a box. I dont do this and dont know anyone who does but its supposed to be good for you. Anyway, back to the funnyfarm.

    Hope he feels better soon

    Laura,
