What Do I Do If My Baby Has Gas After Feeding
Thats Normal: Baby will trap a little air every time it swallows. Thats the way the swallowing mechanism works. As baby gulps it down, you either burp it up or will deal with is exiting the other end. The digestive tract is just a long tube. Some parents swear by mylecon( gas drops) but its not magic. It may combine some bubbles but it doesn't stop the process. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How do I know if my baby has lactose intolerance?She cries a lot after every feeding and there is too much gas in her tummy :(
Not common: Congenital lactose intolerance is really not very common. Many people think their babies are lactose intolerant when in fact they are not. Babies who have true formula problems really have milk protein allergy. Those babies present with eczema and bloody stool and need hypoallergenic formula. Soy or lactofree do not usually help in these cases . Before changing formula, talk to your pediatria. ...Read more
My two month baby had gas issue but now he is fine but whenever he feeding he start straching for sometimes then normal .should i change his formula?
We have a month old infant who is gassy. We do our best to aggresively make him burp but within an hour after feed, he gets up crying from gas pain. Are there any other remedies?
Some possibilities: Babies swallow air- when they eat, suck or cry. During feedings, try to burp him in between every ounce, or between nursing on each side. Hold him upright (on your shoulder) for 15-20 minutes after feedings to help allow the air to rise up and escape, and not get trapped under the milk. Try a lactose free formula. Try simethicone (gas drops for infants). Check with your doctor if this continues. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Why does 5 week old baby stomach make a lot of loud noises every time she eats a bottle no other time has a lot of gas during feeding had to put on soy?
Swallowing gas: Sometimes infants swallow a lot of gas. Sometimes there are better nipples that decrease the amount of gas swallowed. Not sure soy is the answer. Sometimes infnats need liquid simethecone to absorb gas. While noise are not harmful, burping the infant enough may decrease gas coming out of the other end! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My 5wk old baby doesnt poop all day but pass gas often n kinda uncomfortable, Im mix feeding but recently more on breastfeeding.. Shud i worry? Help
This sounds fine: This sounds fine. Its not unusual for a breastfed baby to have only once daily stool. As you increase nursing you may find that baby stools less often. Gas is normal in babies as long as he is not in persistent pain or having a distended abdomen. Enjoy your baby! Hope this helps! ...Read more
My baby is crying excessively. I am still breast feeding. Her dad is allergic to shrimp, and I ate shrimp 2 days ago. Please tell me what to do. Gas.?
Dr sear's diet: I agree elimination diet is important if you are nursing and your baby is fussy/colic without any other problem (ie fever, poor feeding, etc) if you need a reference google "dr sears elimination diet". Focus mostly on foods mentioned to be avoided. If you hadn't had problems until you ate shrimp, then avoiding shellfish is all u need to do. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
