My 3 week old baby boy has gas every night. I started out in the evenings so I looked at what I was eating (I'm breastfeeding). But nothing seems to be the same that should be bothering him from day to day. The last 2 nights it has been 4 and 5 AM when he has had the worst time. He will wake up screaming, pulling his legs up - all the normal gas signs. He does pass gas if you burp him or push his legs up for a lenght of time. I am trying the gas relief drops - but they don't seem to really help. Any advice??? Also - he really likes to sleep on his tummy - it seems to help with the gas - has anyone else slept thier newborn on their tummy all night? I'm a little hesitant to leave him that way at night - but he does sleep that way most of the day.
