  • did you try gripe water? it could be whatever they're eating, so if you're bf then you want to pay closer attention to your diet,and if they're eating formula then you might want to switch.

  • crying causes the gas pain b/c you swallow air
    sooth the cry

  • My 2 year old still has gas pains nearly every night although it is better when she drinks almond milk. I have a strong suspicion she is lactose intolerant like myself.

  • have tried every sensitive formula, mylicon, gripe water, tummy rub, i burp after every ounce, etc... like I said.. I have tried everything but my doctor doesnt think they are allergic cause they dont get rashes or any other symptom

  • your doctor is wrong. gas issues are often connected to dairy, soy, or gluten. I would try another type of formula or try to relactate so you can breastfeed. I have needed to alter my diet to breastfeed ea of my 3 kids.  Also try chiropractic.  Does wonders for gas and reflux

  • My daughter had gas issues and they did all the stuff with changing up her formula and even tried a soy formula...and of everything Changing her bottles worked. We went to the platex drop ins and sqeezed out all of the air...I have heard that the Dr. browns bottles work wonders too.

  • My son stopped at about 4- 5 months and we had to switch him to soy formula which helped too. I also gave him gas drops before I fed him.
