How to Relieve your Baby's Gas

How to Relieve your Baby's Gas

If your baby is gassy, you will notice that he or she passes a lot of gas and seems to feel better afterward. Gas troubles often start right away or when babies are just a couple of weeks old. Most infants outgrow them by the time they’re 4 to 6 months old, baby gas can last longer.

 

Burp your Baby Twice

One sign your baby needs a mid-meal burp: He turns away from the breast or bottle fussily after just a few minutes of feeding, which is more likely linked to gas than feeling full. If you're bottle-feeding, you can try burping every 2 to 3 ounces and if you're breastfeeding every five to 10 minutes.

 

 

Baby Probiotics

Your baby’s gut flora can be negatively affected by your amniotic fluid and by passage through the birth canal. If our gut flora isn’t great, then it’s affecting our babies. 

Tip: You can find probiotics as supplements as well as in foods like:

  • yogurt
  • other dairy products
  • sauerkraut
  • pickles

Give Your Baby Extra Tummy Time

Tummy time is good strengthening the muscles of your baby needs to lift his head and, eventually, to crawl and walk. But the gentle pressure on baby’s tummy can also help relieve gas.Always supervise your baby during tummy time. And never put your baby to bed on his stomach, since tummy-sleeping puts babies at increased risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).

Control the Air

If you’re breastfeeding, be sure your baby is properly latched.Be sure that the nipple is always completely full with milk, so your baby doesn’t chase formula with air and try to avoid shaking the bottle too much, which can add extra bubbles into the milk.

 

 

Feed your Baby before Meltdowns

Crying, of course, is unpredictable, especially in really little babies but the more your baby cries, the more air he or she swallows  the more gas he or she has.

 

Try the Colic Carry

The pressure on his tummy can help relieve the pressure from gas plus touch can be a powerful tool in calming fussiness.

Try Baby Gripe Water

Although the verdict is out on whether it works. But never offer your little one gripe water without talking to your pediatrician first.
