crying-babyBreastfeeding Moms – might you be giving your child gas?

One of the most common causes of tummy aches in babies is gas. Burping your baby can help, but so can examining your diet if you are breastfeeding.

By eliminating certain foods, you might be able to curb gas production in your child.

The most prevalent gas producers are dairy products, wheat, eggs, vegetables in the cabbage family, and beans.

Other offenders: caffeine, chocolate, and spices. If you eliminate those foods you can see if they are causing problems in your baby.

You’ll know if a certain food is giving your baby gas when you reintroduce it into your diet. If it’s a culprit, your baby will start screaming within hours after feeding.
