I am breastfeeding Rilyn and she seems to be having more problems with gas the last couple days. She doesn't sleep as well at night and a lot of times will sit and grunt then cry, it seems like every 20 minutes or so in the early morning hours so we are not sleeping. She seems better during the day. I just tried some simethicone drops...hopefully these will help. She is still pooping (liquid seedy yellow) and peeing regularly, just seems like she is always trying to poop! Anyone else's LO having tummy troubles?? She never spits up but she also takes a while to get her to burp if I get her to at all. Any advice would help!
Have you tried cutting out dairy for a couple days to see if she's sensitive? Kalebs gets a little gassy every once and a while and the vibrating bouncer seems to calm him. He doesn't cry though just grunts a little and makes funny faces. Hope she starts sleeping better for you!
All of that can be typical and not really gassy. New babies aren't really comfortable with the pooping and the gas. They don't like it. If you think she has gas you can lay her across your lap face down with her belly across your leg(s) and kind of jiggle/bounce them gently while supporting her head with your arm. Also, hold her sitting sideways on your lap supporting her head and back with your hands and lean her back and forth side to side. Usually that will get them burping/passing gas.
Her poop and amount of times she is pooping is completely normal. Could she be hungry when she is grunting like that at night?
