My son gets gas so bad after every feeding!  He was on Enfamil Lipil and his doctor switched him to Good Start Soy formula!  We were hoping that would be the end of his gas problems, Well it isn't!  I give him Mylicon Gas Drops, massage his tummy, bicycle his legs, sing to him, EVERYTHING!  I don't know what to do anymore, I feel so sorry for my little man!!!  Once he gets through eating within 30 minutes he starts crying and his tummy gets as hard as a rock!  If anyone has been through this or knows of anything I can do, please let me know!  Thanks, Krystal

Feb. 3, 2008 at 8:06 PM Does the soy formula have Lipil in it? I had the same problem with both of my kids, but as soon as we cut the Lipil out they were both fine!

Thanks for the comments!  I will try the gentlease, and see what it will do!  I have heard of the warm water bag thing too, but I just really didn't understand how to use it!  But I am definatly going to try! Thanks again!!!

Feb. 3, 2008 at 10:58 PM I always had to hold my daughter with my arm around her waist and her back to me for a few minutes and it always seemed to work! If nothing seems to work for you then I would ask the doctor.

If all else fails then just give him diluted apple juice.  I do that with Dallas.  Also it makes a difference on how fast he is drinkin his formula.  Dallas is on Enfamil Gentlease for gas and fussiness.  I wont use anything else.  Its great!
