Hi everybody! I have a one month old son. Everything was fine until last week. Now he is having a problem with gas and it is really bothers him and wakes him up while sleeping. Would you give me some advice how to deal with this? Also he pooped about 44 hours ago (the day before yesterday). Usually it was at least once a day. Is it normal at his age?
Is he on the breast or the bottle? Breastfed babies poop a lot at first and can tapper off to once a week. I don't know how often formula fed babies poop. If he is breastfed, something in your diet could be causing him gas. I used gas drops on my babies and that seemed to help.
Great news - my son pooped today . He is on formula now. I stopped breast feeding a week ago. Was not lucky - newer had enough milk and it reduced to 50 ml a day. So, I gave up. I'm going to try gas drops. Thank you!
