Gassy lo

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So Bryce is Very gassy!!! I feel bad for him b/c he squrms and cries. The mylacom drops help but still. He does better sitting up. Or in our arms or in his swing (we only put him in for a short time) I talked to a retired delivery nurse at church today. I've been really gassy too She said this definatly affects Bryce. One way I can calm him down is by nursing but, this is a double edged sword as it makes him gassy too.

I would't call him colicly yet as I read in Dr Sears
"If you think your lo might be colicly he's not."

So I guess I'll start a food diary to figure this out. Anyone else expierencing this/ have suggestions?

yep...mine's a gassy man, too. i'm pretty sure it's because of my oversupply and very forceful letdown. www.kellymom.com has some good info on that.

Block nursing and reclined nursing definitely helped with my oversupply.

I also use homeopathic carbo veg. Seems to help a bit.

James is terribly gassy. He STINKS. I feel badly for him. Once my supply evens out and his digestive system matures, I'm sure it will get better. Same with Bryce!

Judah gets gassy as in he burps alot and spits up after nursing - definitely let-down related. Sounds like he's drowning in milk sometimes! However, he's almost never gassy on the other end. I'd definitely keep a food diary if that's what's happening with your DS. Seems lower-digestive issues may have more correlation with food sensitivities than with let-down, though that's not necessarily always the case.

Hope you're all feeling better soon!

Hmm, my partial reply just disappeared...

Gassy little guy here too, I also think it's too much milk, coming too fast. The kid wakes himself up he's so gassy. I guess it's good that it's coming out though? But even after huge man-burps, there is always still more, both ends. I really hope it is something he grows out of!

candy, we're having the exact same issue! Our Dr. said to use the mylicon which helps but not always. She loves to sit up and munch on a finger but sometimes even that won't help. I've also been trying Hyland's colic tablets which are homeopathic (our Dr said these are safe to use but may or may not work). Sometimes I think it's colic but mostly it's just bad gas (sometimes she freaks when she's trying to pass a BM).
