Thread: So gassy and no sleep!!

  1. #1

    Default So gassy and no sleep!!

    My 5 week old is exclusively breastfed and for the most part it's going well. But he is so gassy, especially at the later part of the night/early morning. It interrupts both of our sleep and I just feel so bad for him. At what age do they start to grow out of some of this??
    Also, when do bf babies start to sleep longer than 2-3 hours? I am dying here! I always required a lot of sleep and miss it TERRIBLY!! Once he finally does start to sleep longer, how long until my body regulates for that so I am not waking up engorged at 3 hours?
    Thanks so much ladies!!

    My lo is 4 weeks and is a fast drinker.... when it's really bad, I will give him gripe water. It seems to help.
