Mommies who already had babies???

What are some of your remedies for relieving a baby that's constipated and has painful gas

Gas drops for sure & how old is your baby ? If your baby is only a few months and drinks formula it's normal for them not to poop for up to 4 days .. After that if they still aren't pooping then put 1/2 tbsp of prune juice in 4 oz of formula 1 tsp for 2 oz .. Also changing formula would help too ... My daughter had severe gas issues and I took her to the doctor & followed these steps & now she's doing just fine

My step mom helped me a lot with my first and her gas.. she would hold her in the football position tummy down and pat her back. Helped a lot. Also pushing legs up towards the tummy and for sure had drops. Also maybe look into what type of bottle you are using. I like the planter drop ins. They can be a little pricey but definitely helps reduce the amount of air the baby is taking in.
