Also a sling or wrap is a godsend in the early days. They're upright so it helps get wind up and they're very close to you so it's comforting.
The tiger in the tree hold is also good. Lie your baby on your left arm so your hand is under his nappy and on his thigh. Then gently swing left to right. Sometimes this was the only thing that worked with my son.
For food the usual culprits are dairy, coffee, chocolate (sorry!). Specifically for me it was onions, hummus and dark green veg.
Thanks how strange, we're getting better at winding alright, everything's a learning curve at the moment! Going to a sling meet on Wednesday so hopefully get sorted with a sling soon too
On no not chocolate! I'll avoid all that stuff & keep a food diary (diet has to start soon anyway) to try pin point anything else!
