    Default Stinky gas

    Hi ladies,

    Just a quick question. My 10 week old is EBF. Her gas is really stinky- kind of like sulfur. I don't remember my son being that fragrant at that age. Just curious if it's the norm or maybe a sign of allergies. She's not really bothered by it- she can just clear a room quick.

    Thanks

    My LO also has really stinky gas. Never really been a problem, and she has no allergies (that we know of). I'm not an expert but I think so long as her poops are ok - in color and frequency - that it's fine. I could be wrong though, maybe someone else knows more...

    I hope it's normal, because ds2 has me gasping for air sometimes

    Yeah, that's about the age when dd earned the nickname 'Stinky McFartigan.' The stinkiness dwindled away eventually around four months, about the time she learned she could fart herself by grabbing her feet and pulling them to her chest.
