My baby is now 12 days old. He has a couple of bouts per day (or night... we never know when it will hit) of what is clearly gas pain. Also he gets the hiccups frequently. How safe is gripe water, does it really help, and am I over-reacting when he only has gas a couple times a day? Or is that a lot? He's my first baby, so I have no other experience to compare it to.
It just makes me so sad when he cries and cries. I don't want to dose him if it's unnecessary, but also if there's something safe that can ease his gas pain I'd like to try it...
I'm interested in hearing about people's experiences with this stuff, if it's safe, etc. Thanks!
I found that I had a huge oversupply issue and once I got that under control, the gas calmed down a lot. I could never connect it to a food that I was eating, but once my supply got regulated by block feeding, she is a much happier baby. My lactation consultant sent me a really nice article titled something like gaining, gulping, and gassy..... Which described my babe to a tee!
