Hi,

 

I recently started Dom and noticed that my 6 week LO's toots have become stinky and also he seems gassier. We are battling many gas problems already and this is NOT the side effect I wished for... although I didn't know about it. 

 

Since noticing it.. I have read a few posts where some other moms have noticed it.

 

My questions:

 

If his toots are getting stinky does it automatically indicate something undesirable is going on in his digestive system? Or are these just harmless stinky toots?

 

What can I eat (Dill seeds?) or give him fennel tea to make it easier on his little tummy?

 

Thanks

LOL I feel really silly. From the title I thought you had stinky toots, not baby. I just had a good laugh at myself lol.

With baby's wind, it may not even be related to the Dom. My DD for the longest time had gas that smelled a LOT worse than her poop. I actually remember telling extended family that there is no way she had a poopy diaper because she smelled too stinky - it HAD to be gas lol. We said "her bark is worse than her bite" ;-)
Anyways usually it was something I ate - cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, onion, beef, etc that had phased through the milk. Usually DD had more trouble if she COULDN'T toot. This may be TMI but sometimes I have stinky toots without digestive problems or other issues. I wouldn't worry if baby isn't bothered by it.
