Does anyone have any advice for getting rid of gas?
Hi, I had the same problem with my baby when he was a couple months old.
My hubby and I took our baby to the ER when he was five weeks old b/c of his terrible gas....the ER doctor said that many moms have success with gripe water.......you might want to go online and find a good gripe water.....it does wonders for my now 3 month old son.....I originally purchased Baby Bliss Gripe Water from Walgreens.....but there was a recall on that one recently so I stopped using it.....there are lots of different brands of gripe water on the market......I am currently using Woodward's, it works, but it has sodium bicarbonate in it and I think it makes my little guy spit up.....I asked around and I am gonna try Colic Calm....it's expensive though, but I hear that it works well.
Hmm..what about a warm bath?
Or using a rectal thermometer to ease some pressure?
Have you introduced any solids yet? Prunes or prune juice does wonders!! I had to give that to my babe before I was ready with solids. She was quite gassy as well.
Gently massaging her tummy?
I'm sorry love! I can't think of any more options for you! I gave ya everything I know, here!
You could try changing the baby bottles. Try using the playtex bottles with the drop-ins. They are suppose to help with causing less gas in the babys tummy and such.
