    Gripe water did wonders for our LO her first weeks of life. Now she has no more gas pain at 10 weeks! It gets better :)

  • My DD has been having a hard time pooping I can tell by her grunting and bring her feet to her chest, she seems to only be pooping now once a day. I did give her gripe water but it makes me nervous. She is only 11 days old. I did change her formula to gentle and when she went today and lastnight it was green. I feel bad and Im not sure what to do. And Google is no help either. Im hoping that the green poo is from the water and that it will pass on its own and become normal.

    Try moving her legs in a bicycle motion when she seems like she is gassy, it can help to move the gas around. You can also rub her belly in a clockwise direction. It's normal for babies to have gas and to spit up, most of it does not require medication. Make sure she is burping well after she eats, too.
  • I agree with all the points from the above poster. I'd also add to keep her upright for at least 20 mins after feeding, and elevating her head while she sleeps (with a wedge under her mattress).
    My little guy is 5 weeks old today, and has gas and reflux, too. All of this has helped him a lot!

  • I use dill tea for my babies....I look for dried dill. I'm from The Bahamas so 'dill' is found almost anywhere growing. You boil the dry dill branches where the seeds are (not too strong), then sift it through a thin cloth to sift out all the seeds. Fill a bottle with it and if your baby do not like it like that, you can sweeten it with a little drop of Karo corn syrup. My son love it without anything in it because I do not make it strong.
