Gas drops:yes or no? I have a 9 day old baby who has bad gas. I know it's uncomfortable for her! The pediatrician said they don't prescribe them, but everyone I know has always used them. Thoughts?

I use them and have used them since my daughter was 3 days old. She's 8 weeks and perfectly healthy. They work almost instantly and made her much more comfortable.

Have you tried gripe water? Gripe water actually worked better than gas drops for my little guy.

NO NO NO NO!!!!!!! I wouldn't put anything like that into a baby under a year. Let alone a baby under even. A month!!!! Bad idea. Anyway try bicycling his legs. Try different formula or breastfeeding try hanging your diet.

Gripe water works well too

My Dr. said they are not proven to work and gripe water is definitely safe. I use gripe water more often but sometimes my LO needs the gas drops and they seem to work for him. Just be careful that you use the correct dose.

My pedi said they don't work. I tried them with my DD and I didn't notice a difference. Probiotic worked really well for my baby. It took a while to notice the difference but after a couple weeks I saw a huge change. I also heard colic calm helps.

We use gripe water. It's natural and cheaper because you can use it for hiccups, teething, colic fits and gas; instead of buying all those different things

Ok, so our LO would scream for hours with gas, it was horrendous. My pedi recommended doing them religiously 4 times a day, after a feeding with a good burping afterwards. Within a week, it was so much better!!!!!! We tried gripe water and that didn't work. I'm serious, please try it. Every day, 4 times, burp.

I used Cocyntal Baby Colic. Helps relieve stomach pain, spasms and intestinal gas. Comes in little pre packaged tubes that you break open and squeeze into babies mouth. Can even be put in bottle with breast milk/formula. Easy to use and worked awesome. Was recommended by my LOs chiropractor/naturalpath.
