My daughter is 10.5 months old. She has always been gassy. I know gassy is normal. Her plots and burps, however, are so loud and powerful that people think my husband is doing it and blaming the baby. She will have crying fits till she gets rid of the gas. We have been treating for reflux. Zantac helped for awhile but after a couple of months became ineffective. At 8 months we switched to prevacid. It helped for about a week. In addition to all the gas, once we started baby food she started straining to poop.I thought maybe it was just her adjusting to the food, but it never quit. She grunts and twists and turns with each bm. She does this even with pasty poo. We have tried changing her diet, my diet. We added juice and water. Nothing seems to work. It has gotten so bad that she is no longer sleeping well at night. She wakes up every hour or so with pain. Please help me.
