Hi, I haven't posted here before, but I have a question I am hoping you ladies can help me out with.
We started my son (6 mos) on solids about 2 weeks ago. He loves it, but shortly after we started, he started getting up more often at night. He would be pretty fussy, which he NEVER normally is. Last night, when he was up for about the 3rd time, I finally laid him on his belly. He let out several long, forceful toots, and then went to sleep and slept for several hours. Do you think the food is making him gassy? Specific foods or just food in general? Also, we feed him just before bedtime, which I think may be adding to the problem. I was thinking that I might start giving him his solids after he wakes up from his nap instead. Any thoughts?
We just started giving Preston peas lately and he seems to toot alot more. They say to lay them on their bellies to get the gas out. Same as if you were to do it if your belly hurt. I know my PED, mother and 5-8 different friends with kids say NO large amounts of broccoli or cauliflower. Those will make your baby real gassy. If you give them those, mix with noodles or rice (if you make homeade food, I am) and wait to give it 'til 8-10 months or if you buy jarred food (like the mixed dinners), wait 'til they are 8-10 months before you introduce.
I think when you first start, the food does make them more gassy (just like veggies do to adults). I think it takes their system a little time to adjust. Did you try each one out for 3-4 days first? If you did, did you notice this right away or just after you added peas or beans?
