My son is very gassy! He hardly spits up, but toots constantly! I have tried several different bottles and gas drops and none of the ones I have tried work. I even thought it might be my breatmilk and tried formula, nothing seems to help. Any sugestions??

I had twins in October and my boy was extremely gassy and it was painful for him. My doctor is all into the natural remedies and he told me about a probiotic, Culterelle. You can get it at Walmart or any drug store. It helps with his digestive system and is found in some formulas but not all. I gave this him and within a few days, he was a completely different baby!!! Didn't fuss at all!!! He still has gas all the time but it doesn't hurt him now. It also help regulate his bowel movements. Just open up one capsule and put it ontop of his food or in his bottle once a day and I swear it'll help him tremendously!

You could try  laying him across your lap so that his belly is on one of your legs and his chest on the other. While doing this pat his back. This puts pressure on his belly so he can push out the gas.

My baby is very gassy too no matter what I eat.. he likes to laty on my chest and I rock him from side to side which adds pressure on his gut helping the wind to pass.

My daughter is crazy gassy... what I do is lie on my back or side, and lean her up against me belly to belly and just let her get it out.  I find the best times are right when she wakes up from her night sleep or naps...  This way she can wiggle them out, and I know that after she sleeps she's pretty much digested and ready to eat again...makes for a less messy gas-out...

My daughter had the samme problem.  My Dr. told me to burp her more often while feeding and keep her upright for 15+ minutes after so that the gas could come up.  I also used a heating pad between us when nursing, on low temp and that helped get it out faster.

he might have a slight milk allergy, mine gets extremely gassy and smelly when i have too much dairy. other than that as long as he is actually getting the gas out and it isnt physically hurting him than it's ok, some babies are just gassy
