I really, really love beans and broccoli. I try to eat them in moderation but they make Joe gassy, especially at night. If I took beano when I ate these would they help from making him gassy? I will avoid them if I have to until the gas doe not bother him so much but I was just wondering if this was a viable alternative.

Well, I don't think it would hurt but I don't know that it would work, either. Sorry, that's not a very helpful answer!

He'll get some of the beano enzymes through your milk - it worked for us when dd was getting horrible gas from things that I was eating until we could figure out what they were. You might not totally avoid gas, but it WILL reduce it

What about baby gas drops directly to the baby? Mylicon is very safe.
