Re: BFing causes gas? Baby's tummy is very noisy...
hi there, and welcome to the forum!
the following link has some useful information about baby being gassy.
could it be possible that you have a forceful let-down or an oversupply of milk? the website above states the following:
Too much milk too fast, so that baby gulps and chokes and takes in too much air along with the milk.
as the pp stated, breastfed babies can go several days in between poops. when my dd was 2 weeks old she pooped once a week...twice if we're lucky. she's almost 5 months old and she still poops once a week. as long as your baby is not constipated or her poop doesn't have blood streaks in it, he should be fine.
also, when my dd nurses, i, too, can sometimes hear her tummy rumbling. i don't think you have anything to be worried about that.
as for the various techniques to help ease the gas pains...you've pretty much listed out what i would have suggested!
hang in there...and good luck!
