Q.

Passing Wind

what is "normal" in passing winds for a 15 month old ?

I think my Lo passes excessive wind and other moms say its normal.

He is on NAN3 at the moment.
have tried Isomil, Nido and LF formulas and all the same.

What could be the problem ??
He has no diarohea or constipation. Just lots of wind.

It does seem as if your baby is passing excessive amounts of wind. The most common cause of this at his age is dietary, possibly too much starch in his diet or a food intolerance, especially lactose intolerance.Against lactose intolerance is the fact that he did not improve on the LF formulas. As long as he is growing well and gaining weight I would not be too concerned about your baby son at this stage.
