Health Tip: Dealing With Baby's Gas
Is mom eating foods that may contribute?

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- A gassy baby is a grumpy baby, but there are things parents can do to help alleviate the problem.

The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these suggestions:

  • If mom is breast-feeding, identify any foods in mom's diet that could be contributing to gas.
  • If baby is formula-fed, use ready-to-feed formula. Or, to cut down on air bubbles, allow a mixed powdered formula to sit before feeding.
  • Use vented, angled or collapsible formula bottles to help reduce swallowed air.
  • Burp baby more frequently.
  • Gas drops may be used safely, but keep in mind that often they aren't effective and they can be costly.
