My son is 9 weeks old and has been having increasing trouble with gas, especially in the mornings. I am exclusively breastfeeding and am wondering if anyone has found certain foods that should be avoided. I try to vary my diet every day and I can't seem to pinpoint any specific food that could be the cause. He only sleeps for 3 hours at a time through the night, he used to wake up because he was hungry, now it's because of gas. He's always best once he has a bowel movement, but that's only happening every 4-5 days, which I'm told is normal, but if he had one more often he'd be a lot less gassy. Any suggestions? I try gripe water after feeding him, especially at night, but I don't think it's helping too much.
