Excuse you! About your gassy baby.

Gas is seemingly everywhere when you have a baby. Baby gas tends to vanish by the age of four months but some babies will end up being gassy longer than that.

If you think your little one is gassy, then here are the tricks to try. After this, a fussy baby might just be fussy (babies like to be fussy "just because" sometimes), because he is not feeling well, or is in need of something else.

  • Make sure your babe is latched on well when breastfeeding. First and foremost, this is to your benefit (avoid sore nipples) but secondly it can cut down on slurping air and thus gas. The same goes for bottle feeding; tilt the bottle so that milk completely fills the nipple and give it a tiny shake to work up the air bubbles. Less air in the bottle is less air in your baby.
  • Rub your baby's tummy and rotate her legs bicycle-style to work that air out. Plus, babies love the bicycle leg game.
  • After breastfeeding, hold your baby upright for a little while afterwards. If bottle feeding, try feeding her as upright as possible.
  • Burp often. And don't forget the burping cloths.
  • Never wait until your baby is starving to feed her. A super hungry (or upset) baby will cry and eat at the same time or frantically eat; all the while gulping down air along with her meal.
