I've been giving my 2 week old gripe water when he's gassy and he burps and it seems to help. Well, the last couple of days, he's been really fussy when he has a bowel movement. He gets really red in the face, pushes really hard and sometimes cries.
I know Mylacon can cause constipation, but can gripe water? Could his straining be from the gripe water? Is it safe to give such young babies chamomile or mint tea, since they easy tummy problems? Is there any natural remedies for gas in young babies?
I never gave you two anything for gas . so I can not help there.. But you might want to stop giving him the meds for gas to see if that helps..You might want to try a very small amount of prune juice. But if that does not work consult with his doctor.
