So I have a 3.5yr old and just introduced a new addition to our family....Mr. Thomas (5 weeks). We successfully breastfed our oldest until she was 3 (yes, immediately preggos after her successful wean) and had many challenges during her BF time, but well worth it! OUr new addition is also exclusively breastfed, but now we are having some issues with gas. Not colic, just gassy.
He will awaken every hour at night grunting, fussy, not crying but definitely uncomfortable with hiccups, spit up and passing alot of gas from above and below. He also has stools everytime he passes gas (from below) and did not seem to bother us, but he seems miserable at night.
When we co-sleep it seems to help, but he is still notably gassy and we save the co sleeping until the morning hours due to his sister who still co sleeps with us (we dont have the heart to move her from "her"/our bed just yet).
Anyways, we have been reading much about gas and babies and we found this natural product called "calm colic" and was hoping someone anyone had some experinece with this product.
Any advice is welcomed....we need to at least get 2 hours at night....or we could go bonkers for an additional ??????
WE love our new addition, and would love to see him more comfortable at nights.
Thank you mommas!!
