  • if she is formula fed, it may be that you need to change formulas. I'd call the doc first

  • yes the infant gas drops are ok at that age. try to change formulas if that doesn't help. mylicon or little tummies are both great.

  • i liked trying belly rubs first though....or taking her legs and pushing them up towards her belly....like you making her squat. if she starts farting that way....its helping.

  • yes gas drops are definitely safe...you might try gripe water too. Not sure if a 2 wk old can have it but its worth looking into...it works wonders! Gas, teething, colic, and tummy aches is what its for

  • if you're Bf - look at your diet. many things in what you consume will affect them. if it makes you gassy then chances are baby is too.

    tummy rubs, bicycle move with the legs.

    gripe water worked for my oldest, but not my others.
