In this blog we will help you to understand both conditions, how to spot the difference and what you can do to effectively soothe your baby.
Symptoms your baby may experience include a bloated tummy, straining to pass wind, difficulty burping and excessive flatulence. These symptoms can be very unsettling for newborns and can result in a lot of crying. Not to worry, here is some guidance on what you can do to prevent and ease trapped wind for your newborn.
