Re: I thought BF babies couldn't be constipated?
Some babies are more gassy than others. Mine was like that, and I wouldn't say he was colicky, but he had his days where nothing seemed to calm him, and I think gas was often the culprit. I tried all the remedies but in the end only time was the cure.
In the meantime, keep up with the tummy massage. I found the most helpful move for letting out gas was pushing his knee up towards the opposite shoulder, one at a time.
The most comfortable hold for our gassy boy was the loaf-of-bread or football hold, where you hold his crotch in your hand and his belly lays along your forearm, his head at your elbow. This is a convenient one armed hold, so you can get something else done with your other arm while holding a calm/sleeping baby.
Some people also swear chiropractic care helps with baby gas. We did it for a few months, I am not so sure how much it helped, but I am throwing it out there for you.
