Should he still battle with winds?
My son is 8 months old and still battles terribly with winds, more often than not, his wakings at night seem to be because of wind.
I was told it's the Soy Milk. Could this be the reason? Should he still be battling at this age? Also, he still possets/spits up, i'm assuming that this is because of the wind?

Yes, soy milk can cause some babies to be excessively windy.
Your son also has a problem with reflux. If he is not gaining weight well or if he is having chest problems you should see your paediatrician about his refux. This should stop being a problem when he is about 18 months or so.
