Gas Drops & Breast Feeding Question Ayden&GavinsMommy 2 kids; Mchenry, Illinois 343 posts

My 8 day old son seems to have some problems with gas. I'm breast feeding him and was wondering if the position I feed him in has anything to do with it. The only position that seems to work for the both of us is the football hold. I was gonna try some infant gas drops (Mylacan). Has this worked for any of you ladies, any advice would be great and helpful

Thanks

what kind of food do you eat? It may have something to do with him having gas?

I use the Mylicon drops with my daughter and they work great!
THey are also safe to use at every feeding just in case they get gassy alot, which makes me feel safea bout using them!
I too am breastfeeding... I've tried different types of holds, and it doesn't seem to matter.. Sometimes she just gets gassy...

I do both. I use the football hold and I use the gas drops. As your daughter's system matures, her gassiness might subside a bit. I saw that happen in my daughter. I also used the drops at every feeding (the CVS brand) and they definitely helped her out. Good luck!

P.S. Don't eat Chipotle while BF, I learned the hard way!
