This is our family name for expulsions of gas. My little grandson is doing it a lot. He also acts like his tummy hurts (not extremely, like in colic, but fussing most of the day, pulling up his legs). We've tried gas drops several times a day.
He also spits up a lot. I should mention he is 2 months old now, was one month premature. He weighed 5 lbs 15 oz at birth and is over 9 pounds now. He feeds well. The pediatrician felt the spitting could be acid reflux and prescribed rantidine, twice a day, 7 ml. So far, after 5 days of dosing, we're not seeing any improvement.
Anyone have any suggestions for a baby who seems to have belly problems mainly during the day? He sleeps about 10 hours a night, with every 2-3 hour wakes for feeding. During the day, he only catnaps, due to the belly problem, I think. And he fusses virtually nonstop, except for the catnaps or when he's nursing.
