  • make sure after every bottle you burp her! sit her up for a while too. when she has tummy pain you can try laying her on her back and bend her knees to her chest and do bicycle legs. this helps relieve pressure. you can also lay her on her tummy across your lap long ways and pat her back. the pressure of your knee to her tummy will feel good. medicine is last resort. but if the gas drops dont help, you could try gripe water. it is safe for infants it's sold in the baby section of many stores!), made of chamomile, fennel and ginger. it really helps relax the muscles therefore releasing gas. talk to the dr.! he/she might want you to try a different formula.

  • My daughter had reflux and gas really bad for the first 3 months. Are you using rice cereal yet? Sometimes certain brands can make it worse. I have to agree gripe water works much better than the drops.
