The real question here is why is your very young baby so windy? You do not mention how your baby is being fed. It is very likely that your baby has a lactose intolerance problem. If he/she is being formula fed, try a low lactose formula such as Similac Total Comfort. In any case do not use behoedmiddel for your baby and you are correct it contains alcohol.
