My 6 week old daughter has gas problems, tried every product, can any one help

[deleted account] ( 13 moms have responded )

It wakes her up, she farts really loud, it is getting unbearable. I have burped her a million times, used infants friend, infacol and herbal solutions that just do not seem to work, she is on a delact formula which they say is fine and should not worry about swapping, any suggestions?

My son has pretty bad gas. The best way I have found to relieve the pressure is while laying flat on his back, rubbing around his belly button lightly in a series of tiny circles and then I pump his legs in and out (kind of bringing his knees into his belly alternating legs.) Usually, as soon as I am finished he lets out a big fart. He really likes the leg thing so I end up doing that the most and it instantly works while you wait for the medicine to start.

mylicon works great for me...but there's also a product called gripe water if you haven't tried that!

I know you say you've tried every product, but have you tried Ovol Drops? They work great for my son. He is on the Similac Sensitive formula as well and that really helps, but it is very expensive!

My son has some wicked farts and I can never get him to burp- the dr. suggested changing formula to similac sensitive (orange can) and Im now using Dr. Brown bottles. So far so good! The bottles are expensive, but worth it. They also help if your baby has colic.

Our babies are around the same age and devyon has lots of gas to. i mentioned it to the doctor and she changed his formula to isomil which cuts down on the gas and fussiness. Every since then he's been fine.

Hello Kirstie! Our babies are the same age. My little Maya had the same problem. I started using Telaments Colic Drops and they worked like a bomb. It helps with burping her efficiently and therefore will decrease gas and farting.

I've heard that chopping and changing formulas makes the gas worse so rather stick to the one that you're using and let her get used to it.
