Nervous system: you get triggering of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems and there could be GI effects from the release of these neurotransmitters. See your GI specialist to place you on a better IBS regimen.

A 53-year-old member asked:

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

Dr. Laura Webb

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.
