My 3 week old is breastfed and she is constantly grunting. Every night about 4 or 5 in the am she starts grunting so loud and squirming in pain. It takes a couple hours for her to finally pass anything. She does it all throughout the day and night when she is trying to get rid of gas...and she has a lot of it. She poops very often. I really don't know what it is in my diet that would make her so gassy...I'm not eating a lot of any one kind of food. I reluctantly tried Infant Mycolin for gas relief but it doesn't seem to help. It's really disrupting her sleep and everyone else's. I keep thinking we will get through it eventually but in the meantime she is really struggling. I do lift her legs to her chest and rub her belly and pat her butt, etc to try to help her. A friend of mine's baby grunted all the time too and her ped told her it was called something but I can't remember what it was. Any advice?Answer Question
