Baby Gas

Every infant has gas. However, some of these babies basically have more gas rather than the other ones. In reality, a sum of gassiness is exactly normal in newborn babies. However, infant’s gas symptoms may cause your baby feel pain and anxiety such as; abdominal pain and bloating, distended abdomen, abdominal and back pain, severe abdominal pain and vomiting, stomachache, repeated burping, hiccups, salivaries, flatulence, postprandial bloating. Consequently, your baby may be depressive, noisy, restless, and anorexic. What is gas problem of an infant and where does it come from in newborn baby? Gassiness in a baby not only results from one simple reason but it depends on several factors. Gas is created in the digestive tract first few seconds of a baby whether infant has breastfeeded or formula feeding. Gas in newborn is an organic by-product of digesting system. However, some baby lactation dieteticians and pediatricians claim that mother’s traces of excessive gas-producing and acidity food habits can be passed during breastfeeding from mother to baby. Maternal diet rich in gas and acidity may guide to intolerances, besides irritation and sensitization in newborn. Due to this reason, a mother should test her infant while she is bereastfeeding her baby and notice how her child is affected from her routine diet. Hereunder, she can give up some of nourishment which is high in gas and acidity such as fruits, strawberries, vegetables, juices, legumes, tomatoes and peanut for a while. Another important point is air bubbles! As the infant lactated he/she may take in air bubbles through his/her mouth. Therefore, try to burp your baby every three to five minutes during suction period. If you bottlefeed your newborn, then be sure that the nipple of the nursing bottle is the true size. Supposing the nipple is too large it will reason your infant to have too quickly. Instead if the nipple is too tiny it will source your newborn to gulp air.

One other possibility for baby gassiness is foremilk production in large amounts known as hyper-lactation syndrome. Some mothers have an extreme milk supply which means producing much amount of foremilk. Foremilk has much water and high lactose in content. How can foremilk or hyper-lactation syndrome make an infant gassy? Foremilk flows down guickly. A newborn is urged to suck flowing foremilk fastly and gulps much more air. One more thing some sensitive newborn babies may negatively impress with environmental factors such as noise, ring, TV, light, guests etc. Newborn babies who experience more activities may have cruel gas and fussiness. Besides, they can not sleep easly later on in the daytime or nighttime. The changes of routine diet as breastfeeding, bottle feeding or formula feeding and introduction of solid foods in elder babies produces and increases gas. The baby’s stomach and digestive track may take a few times for adapting these changes.
When and why does a newborn baby cry? Is infants’ crying only because of pain or gas cramps? A quite sum of crying is usual and normal in all infants, since it is their only verbal expression of hunger, loneliness, warmth, chillness, uncomfortableness, diaper rash or in need of being diaper change. Most of infants and newborns go through periods of crying for no noticeable basises as they just trying to get use to their new earth. We must also think more that newborn babies swallow air and air bubbles directly while they are crying. This air and air bubless can straightly passes on their stomach or intestine. In general, gas is not a difficulty or a problem for creating pain and uneasiness. It can be pushed through the digestive tract easly.However; babies are born with a very immature digestive system. They need time to develop their muscles and body systems for their new lifetime.
