a lot of gas

by Joana
(San Bernardino CA)

Hello my name is Joana. I have a 7 month old girl and I was wondering if is normal for my baby to have alot of gases, and also she only eats in one breast for 3 to 5 minutes but 15 minutes pass and she wants to eat again. Is this normal?

She started eating her solid foods but shes not that interesting. And about her gases shes always pushing to take them out.I don't know if is my milk that is causing her to be gassy. But shes always hungry and fussy.

Have you tried giving her finger foods? some babies prefer this over the soggie porridge or purity.

You can give pieces of soft fruit such as banana. Here are some ideas...Finger food ideas and baby led weaning tips

Also if you think its a hindmilk/foremilk imbalance you can remedy this by decreasing your supply and by giving baby only one breast with each feeding.

Here are some oversupply tips
