Answer: Babies can be pretty gassy. It’s common for them to pass gas 13-21 times each day! Infants have plenty of chances to swallow air Try these steps to prevent and ease the pain of gas Check feeding position. When you’re nursing or bottle-feeding, try to keep the baby’s head higher than her stomach, That way, the milk sinks to the bottom of the stomach and air goes to the top, and it’s easier to burp out and use a nursing pillow for support. Burp your baby. One of the easiest ways to ease gas pains is to burp her/him during and after she/he nurses. If she/he doesn’t belch right away, lay her down on her back for a few minutes and then try again. Change sides : switch to a slower-flow nipple, Work it out. Gently massage your baby, pump her legs back and forth (like riding a bike) while she’s on her back, or give her tummy time (watch her while she lies on her stomach). A warm bath can also help her get rid of extra gas.
