Indigestion: Over-the-counter and antacids work most of the time. But if persisting or getting worse you should be evaluated.

Food diary: Keep food diary to determine what foods may be causing your symptoms. Beano (over the counter) may help if difficulty digesting certain foods. If heart burn, can take acid acid reflux medicine. Simethicone can help with gas. If symptoms persist, then please see doctor to get checked out for any other underlying issues.

A 53-year-old member asked:

Will certain foods I eat while i'm breastfeeding cause my baby to get gas?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Laura Webb
Pediatrics 13 years experience
Yes: Some foods in a mother's diet seem to be linked with increased fussiness or gas in their babies. Some culprits seem to be dairy, brussel sprouts, legumes and ither cruciferous veggies. The only way to see if this makes a difference in your baby is to try cutting one or more of these foods out of your diet and observing anh changes in your baby.

Is it painful for babies to have gas?

Dr. Roy Benaroch

No: I don't think so. Passing gas is a part of life, and really-- it doesn't hurt. I can surprise and upset a baby because it might feel "weird", but i don't think it honestly hurts. Reassurance and humor ("you sound like daddy!") are the best "cures" for gas. Babies who continue to fuss with gas usually have parents who are worried about gas. Babies can tell when you're worried, and they'll worry too.
