Hi Mamas,

I have a very gassy baby and could really use your help/experience puzzling through the best way to help her get more comfortable.

She was very fussy and gassy as a newborn, spitting up often and seeming to be very uncomfortable. I went off dairy seven weeks ago and it seemed to make a difference. I am just now reintroducing it to my diet, eating it once every four days. So far, I've had one day with a butter-crust fruit dessert. Mmmmm.... Anyway.

In the last week, she has also gotten her two first teeth as well as a cold, along with the dairy reintroduction. She is also pooping again at night, visibly struggling to get gas out. She hasn't pooped at night for weeks so it's a bummer to be back here. She also has an increase in spit-up.

My questions: do teething and colds give some babies more gas/spit up issues? Should I try giving her some sort of remedy like gripe water? Are there any other things I should think about? I don't think that she has other diet sensitivities but of course, I could be wrong...

Any help/experience is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I'm running crazy with our older boy and didn't want to jump in and end up feeling flaky. But I did do some lurking...

Anyone out there have advice for us?
