Q:

hello, my 20 day old baby is really very gassy, he is exclusively breast-fed. what can I do to help him relieve it? can gripe water be taken at this time? and he constantly demands feed when he is uncomfortable. is it ok to do so?



Sonali Shivlani

Make sure you burp baby for a few minutes after each breast. Gentle abdominal massage will help relieve gas. Avoid gripe water without prescription. If baby is not hungry it is best not to use the breast and feed very frequently. Try and keep a 90-120 minute gap between feeds.

u can also give colic acid drops before 15 mints of feed or when ever baby is crying due to discomfort with gas..burping is must after each feed..

Puja Shringi

I used to give both my babies Himalaya Bonnison drops ..best and Ayurvedic,no side effects
