Nothing can put a damper on holiday festivities quite like an unhappy baby. Here are a few tips to help keep little tummies happy this holiday season and keep the festivities going.
Upset Tummy Relief*: Mommy’s Bliss Upset Tummy Relief* is great to keep on hand while traveling, it is a safe and effective natural herbal supplement used to ease occasional stomach discomfort associated with nausea, motion sickness, indigestion and gas. *
Diet: Try to keep baby’s diet the same, changes to baby’s diet can lead to occasional constipation.
Gripe Water: Don’t let gas and colic pain put a damper on the holiday festivities, Mommy’s Bliss Gripe Water is a safe and effective herbal supplement used to ease stomach discomfort often associated with gas, colic, hiccups and teething.* Our gentle liquid formula is the #1 selling supplement for infant gas & colic relief.*
Gentle Massage: Gently massage baby’s tummy or bicycle their legs to help release any trapped gas.
Probiotics: Probiotics, like Mommy’s Bliss’ probiotic drops, are natural microorganisms similar to those found in healthy digestive tracts. By adding them to baby’s routine you could help to build up good bacteria in the gut leading to less tummy troubles like gas and colic.* A 2007 study in the journal “Pediatrics” found that giving probiotics helped to keep the bacteria in the gut balanced which resulted in less intestinal inflammation which can be a contributing factor in gas or colic in babies.* A 2011 study in the “European Journal of Clinical Investigation” found that probiotics can allow food to move through the digestive system easier leading to less frequent spitting up.*
