I was told slippery elm was really good for gassy babies? Anyone use it? What did you think?

if you are looking for an herbal treatment for gas, you should try peppermint (either in a tea or tincture). slippery elm is something i would use for constipation for myself, and i'm sure it's safe for baby, but i'm not sure of it's effect on gas. peppermint is the first thing that comes to my mind. hope this helps.
