As a parent seeing your baby in discomfort is heartbreaking, one common cause of discomfort in babies is gas. Here are some tips to help soothe a gassy baby.
1. Feeding Position
Whether nursing of bottle feeding try to make sure baby’s head is higher than their stomach while they are feeding, this will make it easier for gas bubbles to rise.
If you are nursing consider keeping a food journal to see if any foods you are eating are causing the gas. If you are formula feeding talk to your pediatrician about the type of formula you are using, they may have some suggestions for formulas that are easier on baby’s tummy.
3. Burp During Feeding
Remember to burp baby during and after each feeding.
4. Gripe Water
Mommy’s Bliss gripe water is an all natural herbal supplement that helps to ease baby’s gas and stomach discomfort.
If your baby suffers from occasional gas a probiotic supplement (like Mommy’s Bliss’ new baby probiotic drops) might do the trick. Probiotics are living microorganisms that can benefit human health and restore healthy bacteria in baby’s digestive tract.
