feeding mein 2 houres ka gap rakho ise kam hote hai gas

Dr. Riddhi Kataria

Hi Harshini, your diet is important for baby s health to be okay. So first look into your diet. Eat nutritious foods. And avoid too long gaps between meals. Secondly, look into the breastfeeding routine. If baby is latching properly and feeding 10-12 times in 24 hours with every feed lasting at least for 20-45 minutes, there will be less problems with passage of motions and gas. Baby should pee 6-10 times and poop 1-2 times a day. If this is a routine, then everything is good.
If you think the gas is too much and baby is crying then apply hing around the navel after every 3-4 hours so baby can get some relief from gas.
Quick tip - do some knee bending exercises for the baby during massage so that baby can easily pass gas.
