    Default Prenatals while BF/

    My 2 month old boy has been very gassy lately and a friend suggested that I should stop taking the prenatal vitamins. I'm interested in what others are doing and welcome any recommendations.

    Thanks.

    I would recommend staying on the prenatals and don't see how they could contribute to gassiness.

    I found that chocolate, eggs and dairy made my poor babies gassy and miserable.
    Mother - Wife - Artist - Cook - Writer - EnvironMENTAList - Cloth Diaperer (but we are soooo done with diapers) - Organic Health Nut...I'm sure there's more.

    DD1 - 12/15/05 Breastfed for 16.5 months
    DD2 - 8/6/07 Breastfed for 3 whole years and 3 little, extra days.

    I'd still take the prenatals... try gripe water for gassiness.

    my little girl was gassy with or without prenatals, I'd stick to the vitamins and try other methods to help the gas- I use the baby gas drops (mylicon or baby gas-x), you can use them at every feeding if needed with no problems. My lo only needs it every now and then now, but for a while, they were a lifesaver. Also, might take a look at your diet, but if nothing jumps out, some babies are just gassier than others.
