My son just turned 3 weeks old yesterday. It's been such a blessing being a new mom even the sleepless nights (which are hard) are so worth it. The last week has been very difficult though my son has been having tummy troubles with bad gas my step mother recommended a little sugar water here and there but I've heard that its not such a great idea. I also bought gripe water at the store, which seems to help some. My dr however is really no help by telling me to pretty much deal with it and not to use the gripe water very much. I feel horrible for my baby though when he cries in pain from the gas anyone have ideas that they've used to help baby gas?
