    Gasy Baby

    Dear Parents,

    I've got a gasy boy and burping does not help him. I bought gas drops and that has helped a little but it only gives him a small bit of relief. We have a doctor's appointment Monday and it will be something I bring up but some any tricks you used would be greatly helpful.

    Had the same problem with Jean-Luc. And honestly we couldn't get much to work so we just had to get through it. Hopefully the Doctor can help.

    If you are BFing, look at what you are eating, there are a number of foods that you can eat that will give baby gas...if you are FF, you might need to see about a different type.

    Either way, the "I love you" baby massage helps for both constipation and gas (its called this because you basically of the massage shapes you make in the abdominal area to mimic the direction of digestion through the colon)--if you google it, you'll find a number of videos, etc. Also, there are "constipation exercises" you can do with the baby--"crunches" and "riding the bike", etc...running and pooping are a thing for a reason. These are something you can be doing daily (its good for muscle development and bonding) anyhow (and if gas or constipation is a problem, you should be doing at least once daily).

    The last option (and its one I used along with the above) is a nightly chamomile tea bottle. Your pedi may or may not go along with this--my pedi worked overseas on a base in Germany and was good with herbal treatments, but no more than 2-2 1/2 ounces of chamomile tea (more than 3 ounces can cause upchuck).

But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Re: Gasy Baby

    I found the exercise videos last night after I posted this. I will check for the I love you massage video. I am BFing and think I have found part of the problem. I will of course test this and see. I am sure going to miss coffee if it is the culprit but I'll give it up so I don't have to hear him scream.
