Re: Windy/gassy baby-I'm out of ideas
Is it burping that seems to cause him discomfort, or farting? If it's burping, I'm thinking that the reflux meds may need to be adjusted. Because if the burp is bringing up a lot of stomach acid... You get my drift.
Exclusively breastfed babies almost never get constipated. Pooping every 3-4 days does not indicate constipation unless:
- the poop is pellet-like or hard enough to roll right off the diaper
- the baby is in real discomfort when pooping (straining, turning red, crying)
- the poop frequency is less than 1 X per week
