My dd wakes up in the night with gas....

She's 8 months. My idea is to give her mylicon drops before I nurse her at night and also to put a towel under one end of her mattress to give her bed a little slant so she's not sleeping flat on her back. Any other ideas or do you think mine are good?

  • yours are right on track, also make sure you burp her before she falls asleep, or even if she is asleep.

  • fold them up... I know that sounds weird but bend her legs up so her feet are at her head for a second lay them flat then do it again... and rub her belly. really helps to get the gas moving
