  • Most veggies make us (babies AND moms) gassy..
    Gassiness is really nothing to be concerned about.. It's actually a good thing, given that most breastfed babies don't poop every day..

  • What makes mom gassy has nothing to do with what makes baby gassy. Breastmilk is made from what passes into mom's blood, not what is in her stomach or digestive track. Neither the gas nor the undigested carbohydrates (whose breakdown can cause gas in mom) pass into mom's blood, so it is impossible for these things to pass into your milk to make your baby gassy.
