Breastfeeding

Are you using any gas relief methods?

If your LO tends to get gas, do you give anything to help ease the discomfort?

  • Yep.  Simethicone (Mylicon).  I buy the Target Up & Up generic brand because its a fraction of the price ($3.69/bottle as opposed to $8 or $9 for Mylicon) and works great.  Used it for DD and now am using it for DS.

  • Didn't need it for DD1, but this one seems to get an upset tummy because she eats so fast.  Mylicon drops work pretty well, though I'm still learning her cues.

  • Simethicone!!  If DS doesn't get it at each and every feeding I get two to three days of fussy baby!  Somehow the bottle got taken out of my pre-packed diaper bag (DH has this habit of raiding my prepacked bag) and DS needed to be fed while we were at the doc's office yesterday - since then he's been so fussy from the gas!!!  Poor little guy!

  • Mommy's Bliss Gripe Water was our savior those first couple of months.  She had horrible gas and this helped sooo much.  I don't know how we would have made it without this!  I always ordered mine from Amazon.  All natural.

    I've been using little tummy's gas drops - it tastes good and he takes them well and it works. But, I may have to try this instead!
