Why do babies get gas?

Why do babies get gas?

There are 2 sources: Harmless bacteria breaking down undigested sugars in the large intestine AND swallowing air during crying and feeding

Mums can lesson their gas forming vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, beans and onions

Feeding babies too much fruit juice can also cause gas, bloating and tummy pain

Why do babies spit up after feedings?

Gastroesophageal reflux is when things like saliva air, stomach acids back up into the oesophagus and sometimes the mouth

GER usually occurs AFTER eating when the lower oesophageal sphincter muscle is relaxed (this muscle separates the oesophagus from the stomach

This usually occurs at around 4 months old and most outgrow this by 12 months of age

Is maintaining your care worth it ?

A helpful tip is cows milk may cause an allergic reaction and can mimic the symptoms


To decrease GER , keep your baby upright as possible during feedings, avoid bouncing your baby and keep the nappy loose to reduce pressure on the abdomen
