It could be or you could just have a gassy baby. One of my girls farted all the time! It was so bad she could peel the paint off the neighbors walls! lol The poop is normal. It is also normal for her to not poop for several days. Unless she is more than obviously uncomfortable (screaming especially when farting or pooping) she is fine.

Yes Could be gas from the shield but hows your diet?



Chocolate, greens, onions, Broccoli, tomato sauce and much more can all cause horrible gas. I'd track your diet for a while and try to stay away from certain foods....here is a list of the most common things that will cause gas.

How old is your baby? You may need to only do one b**b per meal...switching too early can cause a foremilk/ hindmilk imbalance and this causes a gassy uncomfortable baby

3 weeks old... we usually only do one b**b per feeding because if we switch and do both she spits up, if she stays on the b**b too long she spits up as well

I would try an elimination diet and burp her more during the feeding...good luck mama
