what can i do about my 4 month old son crying all the time?

I breastfeed my 15 week old son and he has really bad gas. I feed him then he screams and maybe 10 to 15 min later he passes gas for like 3 min then he stops crying! I eat a lot of veggies n fruits but I'm wondering if I need to stop cuz he's soo gassy any advice would help!

  • Try alternating your diet first. It will take 2 weeks to remove an irritant from his system and your supply. Deo you eat a lot of dairy? It is one of the most common thing? Just drop 1 thing at a time until you find it.

  • I was also thinking dairy. in order to find out what is causing it, you'll have to cut it out of your diet and wait 1-2 weeks to find out if that's the source. has a lot of WONDERFUL breastfeeding info, you will find some really good advice there upon searching "gassy baby".
