Gas pains keeping baby awake at night? Here are some tips to help ease their discomfort and help them drift off to a blissful sleep.
Burp – Make sure to burp baby during feedings throughout the day to help avoid gas pains at night.
Feeding Angle – When feeding baby, either nursing or by bottle, try to keep their head higher than their stomach.
Massage – A gentle stomach massage can help to break up the gas bubbles.
Gripe Water – Gripe water can help to ease stomach discomfort associated with gas, and Mommy’s Bliss new night time formula is perfect to help ease the discomfort and help baby drift off to sleep.
Bicycle their Legs – Move their legs in a ‘bicycle’ motion to help break up the gas bubbles (this might also get you a giggle).
Warm Bath – A nice warm bath can both ease gas pains and get baby ready for bed.
Diet – If you are breastfeeding and notice that baby is gassy, try to avoid certain foods that can cause gas like cabbage and beans.
