Q:

What are some great baby products for helping with baby's gas?

Hi everyone,

I am a new mom to a beautiful baby boy and have been struggling with his gas issues. It seems like he is constantly fussy and uncomfortable due to trapped gas and I feel so helpless. I have tried some home remedies like gentle massage and bicycle legs but haven't had much success. I am now looking for some baby products that can help relieve his gas and make him more comfortable.

Can anyone suggest some great baby products that have worked for them in relieving their baby's gas? I am open to trying different types of products like drops, tea, or any other recommendation that has worked for you.

Looking forward to your suggestions. Thanks in advance!

Hi there,

I can totally understand your struggle with your baby's gas issues. When my little one was going through the same thing, we found that using gripe water was really helpful. We used the Mommy's Bliss Gripe Water, which contains natural ingredients like fennel and ginger, and we saw a noticeable improvement in our baby's gas and fussiness.

Another product that we found to be helpful was the Windi Gas and Colic Reliever from Fridababy. It's a bit unconventional as it involves inserting a small tube into your baby's rectum, but it's completely safe and creates an instant release of gas. It's a bit pricier than other products, but it worked wonders for us.

Hope this helps and wishing you and your little one all the best!

Hello fellow parents,

I also went through the same struggle with my little one's gas and found a product that proved to be very effective. I used Colic Calm Homeopathic Gripe Water, which is an all-natural and gluten-free solution for gas, colic, and reflux. It contains organic ingredients like fennel, ginger, and peppermint that are known to soothe a baby's digestive system.

Moreover, I found that the use of a baby-carrier also helped my baby relieve gas, as it kept him in an upright position, which is much better for digestion. It was a total game-changer for us and really helped relieve our baby's gas.

I hope my suggestions help you out and that you find something that works for your little one as well. Good luck!

Hi,

I had the same issue with my little one a few months ago and I can feel your pain. When we consulted our pediatrician, she recommended the use of simethicone drops to relieve our baby's gas issues. We used Mylicon Infant Drops, which is a popular brand for simethicone drops, and it worked wonders for our baby. We just had to give it to him before every feeding, and he was much more comfortable after that.

Additionally, we also found the use of anti-colic bottles to be helpful. We used the Dr. Brown's Natural Flow Bottles, which are specifically designed to reduce air intake and prevent colic symptoms. They are a bit pricey, but totally worth it in the long run.

I hope these suggestions help, and I wish you all the best for you and your little one!

Hi there,

I had a really hard time with my baby's gas, too. However, I found that something as simple as a warm compress really helped my baby feel better. I would apply a warm washcloth or a warm rice sock, wrapped in a towel, on my baby's belly whenever he was particularly gassy. This would help relieve the discomfort caused by gas.

Another product that worked well for my baby was the Mama Bear Gas Relief Drops from Amazon. They contain simethicone, which is known to relieve gas and are easy to administer, making it perfect for parents on-the-go.

I hope these tips help you and your baby find relief from gas. Wishing you all the best!

Hello all,

As someone who has gone through this before with a newborn, my heart goes out to you. While there are many great products out there that can help with gas relief, I found that a change in my baby's diet also made a huge difference.

We discovered that my breast milk had a high level of lactose, which was causing gas and colic in my baby. After speaking with our pediatrician, we switched to a lactose-free formula and noticed a significant improvement in our baby's gas and fussiness.

If you're breastfeeding, you could try eliminating lactose-rich foods like dairy, beans, and cauliflower from your diet to see if it helps. Otherwise, consult with your pediatrician or a lactation consultant to help you determine a suitable formula for your baby.

I hope this helps, and I wish you and your little one all the best!

Hello there,

I know how difficult it can be when your baby is struggling with gas. One thing that worked for us was using probiotics. We used the BioGaia Probiotic Drops, which contain Lactobacillus reuteri, a naturally occurring bacteria in the gut that can help relieve gas and colic symptoms.

Additionally, I found that my baby felt better when we held him in an upright position during and after feeding. This helped prevent gas from forming and allowed him to digest more easily.

I hope these suggestions help! All the best to you and your little one.

Hey there,

I went through a similar phase with my newborn and found that switching to a slower flow nipple really helped. We were using a medium flow nipple previously, but noticed that this caused our baby to swallow more air than he could handle, leading to gas and discomfort.

We switched to the Philips Avent Natural Slow Flow Nipple and saw a significant improvement in our baby's gas issues. The smaller opening in the nipple allowed our baby to control the flow of milk, resulting in less air intake and less gas.

I hope this suggestion is useful to you and helps you find a solution to your baby's gas issues. Wishing you and your baby all the best!

Hello all,

I completely understand your dilemma and went through this with my baby as well. One thing that worked wonders for me was using the Windi Gas and Colic Reliever from Fridababy. As someone else in this thread mentioned, it involves inserting a small tube into your baby's rectum, but it's completely safe and provides immediate relief for gas.

Another remedy that worked well for us was using Chamomile tea. We would brew a weak Chamomile tea and give it to my baby in small amounts. Chamomile is known for its soothing properties and helps relax the digestive tract, ultimately relieving gas. It's important to note that you should only use Chamomile tea in small amounts and speak to your pediatrician before trying it out.

I hope these solutions bring some relief to your little one. Good luck and take care!
