I'd say as long as she's not having an excess amount of gas pains then she's fine. There will always be some bouts of gas pain to deal with (at those times we found that moving my wee girl's legs around in a slow bicycle motion and tummy rubs tended to help). As babies age their digestive systems change. Her little stomach will grow and strengthen, ...

My son was born at 24 weeks and he would only burp after every second or third bottle. The NICU doctors and feeding specialists all said it is normal and that some babies just do not burp like people expect since burps are just air in the stomach. If you are really worried that she is swallowing too much air and for some reason is not able to burp then I ...

I had the same problem and corrected it. Let me give you the insights I learned during this process and some things I tried to get the biting to stop, which it eventually did: The gums rise significantly before the teeth come out and affect the way a baby latches (to a bottle or breast). At 6 months the baby starts eating more solids, which means they need ...

Have you tried to look up some baby massage techniques? I used to have trouble with my little girl not winding properly and found baby massage helped. There are certain exercises like the ones listed in this site http://irelandsbabyshow.com/anti-colic-massage-technique-baby/ that help. I always used to do the cycling legs and the "I Love U" one. One ...

Although it's nothing to worry about having to wait 2 hours for your baby to burp is inconvenient to say the least, especially at 3am! I don't think dentinox helps much, it didn't with my kids, but it won't hurt to keep trying. For windy babies the best bottles out there are apparently the Dr Brown's, however the avent ones are also very good. It may be ...

Babies eat. Babies eat a lot. Newborn babies eat a lot more than older babies. These are just the simple truths of raising children. Right now, your child has a very small stomach. They can't store as much food as we can and thus need to eat more often. Also, breast milk digests quickly, thus contributing to the need for more food, more often. This has ...

Here's the problem. Your doctor has recommended a particular solution. Anything we recommend would be a second opinion against their recommendation, and taking our advice over a doctor's would be... not good. The best thing to do is to overcome the fussiness. Either mix something you know your child likes into the mash, or instead of egg-yolks, make an ...

I had this problem as my little one had poor suction anyway, especially when he was teething. Chewing is soothing to sore gums. Rather than putting the bottle in baby's mouth, I put it to his lips so he had to suck it in. I would also stroke his chin at the same time. However, this only works if baby is hungry. As he was feeding, if he began to chew, I ...

Have you changed perfumes/soaps/other scented personal products? Soap leaves a residue. My wife accidentally washed her breasts with soap and our son had a similar reaction. She washed with water a few more times and it seemed to resolve the problem. We found that this la leche league book helped immensely in diagnosing those sorts of problems: "The ...

Could it be that he just doesn't want to sleep anymore? If he has "naps", I imagine it is more than one and half an hour each time sounds already good enough for me. If he sleeps well at night, if he is happy and you too when he wakes up after his nap, why would you want to put him back to bed? And also: there is no problem with feeding your baby to ...

I think you may be overlooking the possibility of her beginning the teething stage. The most obvious way to get them sucking is to help them learn to enjoy a dummy. My almost 6 month old son has finally taken to the dummy after ~5 months of spitting it out. As a result I think he complains less and has gained stronger suckling power, making feeds quicker in ...
