My 5 week old is very gassy. She is farting all day long, very smelly, sometimes painful farts. My midwife told me it's normal, just the digestive system adjusting and developing the gut bacteria. The public health nurse suggested burping her more frequently and inclining her during/after feedings because the gas may be due to oversupply. I've been told she'll just grow out of it.
But how do I know if it's more than that? If she's reacting to something in my diet, how do I narrow it down?
