My 5 week old seems really bothered by gas. I try to burp him after nursing, very rarely will he give even one burp. However, he always has lower gas, and squirms and grunts and seems very annoyed by the gas. He strains to get it out. It is affecting nursing and sleep. He cries when he eats if he has gas. I have tried most of the normal techniques (bicycing, rubbing, patting, etc and recently bought some mylicon drops). Is this just normal changing and developing of their digestive systems and will it pass? How can I help my LO with this. He cries a lot when he can't pass the gas, and it breaks my heart. He has very small nostrils and gets congested often. The LC said this could lead to extra gas. I try to ensure a correct latch, but he does sometimes click when he eats.
Any other suggestions?
