Q:

My baby farts a lot and does cry for natural call ...is it's advisable to give gripe water for 1month baby???



Priya

Hi Shiv. For such a small baby pls give only after consulting the Dr. Babies do fart. Does babg cry during passing stool or after? Also do go through this article for burping How should you Burp your Baby?

Hi Shiv,

It isn't advisable to give gripe water a all. Did you know it consists of traces of sedatives? There is nothing more magical than breastmilk for ur baby. However, like medicines need to be administered properly, Breastmilk needs to be too. There might be chances that your baby is colic. Is your wife latching your baby properly? Is your baby being held upright for atleast 20 - 30 mins post every feed? If not, start considering these asap as gas isn't good for ur baby's system.
