Please help! My baby girl is one month old and very gassy. She has been very fussy all day and it looks like its gonna be a long night. What remedies helped your little ones?

I used mylicon drops. They worked so so. Just had to deal really and let her grow out of it. She screamed for 2 hours every night for weeks.

We tried those and she throws them back up for some reason. It sucks when they are in pain and you really can't do anything to help :(

I had that problem, my DD would wake up crying in the middle of the night and then, she would let gas out and stopped crying.


A mom suggested probiotics.

I looked it up online (this was 5 years ago... probiotics were not that popular), printed  a study done in Europe and brought it to my pedi, he told me to try them and I found some in Wholefoods and mixed them with a little bit of water and problem solved.


Mylocon didn't work for mine.


Good luck

I changed the brand of formula I used. Turned out that was the problem all along, and it was all done and resolved when I switched.

Sorry if that doesn't help you.

A gentle tummy massage, along with bending the knees and bringing them up to the tummy worked for my kiddos.  It moved the gas down, and they let it rip (and I mean REALLY rip).

Put a little cinnamon in her bottle. I was a gassy baby and that's what my mom did with me I in turn did it with my son. It really works naturally to break up the gas so she can get it out of her system. Bouncing the helps to.

if she's bottle fed, put gas drops in her evening bottles.

I agree with switching formulas as necessary... we had to go from Similac to Enfilmil Gentlease.  There's a product called Windi that could help too if it's  a big problem.
