I use the oil since 2 weeks old like this , put it in your hand & rub it then softly onto her tummy , back , feets & put on socks afterwards . I will wrap a towel around her tummy as will feel warm & nice , i used cloth diaper .. My baby skin also peeling since birth because her new skin not form yet then after few weeks her skins formed then okay already , we apply lotion , try the Kodomo powder lotion , not oily , smooth after awhile If your milk powder is not suitable better to change , try to get samples from website if you could
I'm using S-26 milk, and my baby has been passing out wind. She looks so uncomfortable and her tummy gets pretty hard at times. been applying Ru yi oil, but to no effect.
Wondering if its the new formula of S-26 causing those problems. Because even hubby commented that the powder looks thicker and coarser than the old formula's.
You guys might wanna try NAN.
But at least your babies are passing out wind which means it's not trapped in the tummy, causing them to feel in pain. If you have previously been using another formula, you should try to interleaf the introduction of the new formula and not change straight to the new one.
You might want to change his FM, since it is causing wind in the tummy....and I also use "minyak telon" on my son when he was born, massage it into his tummy & back after bath
As for the gripe water, dont't give your baby yet...I think it is suitable for 2mths onwards? if I am not wrong. I only gave my son the gripe water when he was about 5mths old.....
For me i'd used ru Yi oil on my girl since birth. Gave gripe water/ fei zai shui since she was 6 weeks old.
Agree that passing out wind better than kept in stomach. But problem when, like my girl, experience pain when passing out wind/ moion. And when wind in stomach making her very uncomfortable. She will wail like being murdered, sometimes even scream until like lose voice like that. very very scary.
Some ways we've used to reduce wind incorporation and help her pass wind or relief the pain: dont stir too vigorously. I used spoon/ choptstick as enfalac was notoriously hard to dissolve, no matter whether you used warmer water or cold water or add lil bit more water. All won't work. Thankfully less problem now when using Nan HA and Friso Comfort.
Use different position to burp/ pat her back. Other than upright patting , which I logically believe helps the air bubbles rise up to be burped, I sometimes change position after a while if she doesn't seem to burp at all. Eg if she hasn't burped after like 3-5 mins of patting her hack while sitting in upright position, I would let her lie on bouncer for a few mins before trying again. Somehow the change in position seems to help encorage the bubbles to gather and burped.
Another way is placing her over my shoulder. Her chin on/over mys shoulder, her stomach against my chest. This is one of the standard burping positions I belive but I press against her stomach tighter. She's never vomitted milk so I feel safe pressing harder. If your baby tends to regurgitate or vomit then better not press too hard.
Something my father in law has used ( successfully) is place girl over his thighs with her stomch arching over the high area. As though she is in crawlng position but suspended in the air with our thigh for support only. She managed to pass wind in this position a few times.
Medicine-wise, my paed prescribed RidWind when we saw her for girl's colic problem. I also bring girl regularly, twice a week for traditional chinese medicine massage. Initialy for her colic now for her running nose/cough/ phlegm problem whch has been persisting for two weeks now. Together with massage the doc would also prescribe some medicinal sachets to be placed over girl's navel. When her phlegm problem didn't gt better, also prescribed some powder to be fed orally. Small amount to be smeared on her tongue thrice daily. Her phlegm has reduced now
Yah and my paed suggested we change to NAN HA formula for her colic problem.
he will pass out wind until he is very uncomfortable and will cry and scream like in pain. see already very heart pain.still have 8 days before we can feed him grip water. so now only can try to apply oil on him and see if it helps. see doctor also never give anything to cure his wind.dont know what to do.
Otherwise try the "chNge position" method. My girl sometimes gives a loud and unexpected burp when I carry her from cot/bouncer. Ie from horizontal lying position to vertical/'koala bear' position.
My girl also almost always hiccups after burping/feed. Dunoe why also.
Think if the non-burping and vomit milk is a constant problem, better ask paed at the one month checkup/vaccination.
i have try change position many times to burp him. sometimes works sometimes dont.even one small burp i will also be very happy. in no burp at all, he will vomit milk when lay him down to sleep.or hipup. sometimes in law say he never burp or in law dont kw how to burp baby then put him down.then he will vomit milk and hipup.in the end make me do more work and waste more time.my baby also hates burping.he will curl around,make noise,cry.but i will still force him to burp but in law will everytime give in to him one.
insteading of giving gripe water, i would reco you give infacol or ridwind instead.
just add one drop into the milk n give it to your baby to drink.
helps them the pass air.
for ruyi oil, i also applied on pin since day one, it warms her tummy, n it helps when you massage it in a clockwise direction.
rub your palms together til it is very warm n press lightly against his tummy n back, then massage in a clockwise direction.
burping wise, either you put him face right up, or lean over your shoulder n burp.
if not lay him down on a cushion/pillow tummy down n burp him, also works.
dont worry about hiccups, as long as it is not pro long, it is ok.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
