  • My DD was on soy for a while and it never caused constipation. Have you looked in neutramgean? (sp?)

  • She doesnt spit up at all. ( I thought thats what neutramgean is for?) I mean she is gaining weight, she just gets so gassy and fussy all day. I cant even put her down for ten mins before she starts fussing. Its so stressful and I will try anything!

  • my daughter was extremely gassy, when different formula didn't work I tried Colic Ease. It's all natural (smells like pickles), but works wonders.

  • My daughter has tried colic ease and it is wonderful, but really sometimes a young baby like this just wants human contact, give it to her!

  • There's another natural remedy called Gripewater that worked well for my daughter.

  • My now 3 year old was vary gassy and meds didn't seem to help so I just put him across my knees whenever he would cry and rock and bounce him while rubbing his back it didn't always help but most of the time it did maybe try a little prune juice to make her poop more tempting her belly
