Preventing Your Baby’s Gas and Colic Symptoms

Opt for Breastfeeding

Opt for Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is no guarantee against gas and colic, but you do reduce the likelihood due to the nature of breastfeeding and the makeup of breast milk.

First of all, you greatly reduce the risk by eliminating the need for bottles. Due to the way bottles work, it is more likely that your baby may swallow air while they feed from a bottle that will cause air and gas to build up in their digestive system.

Breast milk is also much easier to digest than formula. As such, the chances of gas building up is drastically reduced. Plus, the physical contact with mom works wonder for easing the fussiness that comes with colic.
