    Default what makes baby gassy?

    So we're having pretty good luck breastfeeding (only three weeks into it), but I've noticed that Miles is quite gassy of late. Makes me wonder what I have been eating that ends up affecting him this way!?!?!

    Anyone have a list of foods that I should consider avoiding for a bit to see if it gets better??

    TIA

    Don't really have any advice to give but I can sympathise. My LO is very gassy also. Used to just be at night, now it's off & on during the day too.
    Be interested to see what others' experiences are with this!

    I think that the most common culprit is dairy. Citrus hurts my ds's tummy too. Check out the allergy forum, that might be helpful.

    my dd2 is gassy for the longest time. I found if my chocolate intake is high we are both gassy lassies.... She is still very gassy to the point I check her diaper for a mess. 9 times out of 10 nothing but a cute pair of cheeks.

    If your LO i really bothered I would try some gass drops.

    I cut out dairy and the gas problem is almost entirely gone. I went months in denial before I had the guts to do it

    I cut out the dairy in my diet and that solved the gassy issues for my baby. I also know that hindmilk foremilk imbalances can cause gas issues my pedi gi doctor said to always let baby feed on one side. Do you have lots of milk that could be the cause

    Until 2-3 months everything makes a baby gassy (especially boys) because his digestive system is so immature and small. After that it will get better. I used to drink fennel tea myself which helped my son's gas a little bit. Also putting on socks (the baby) all the time seemed to work a little.
