hello, any ideas for vegetarian foods for mum that dont cause wind for my 5 week old boy who's really suffering with it. I m struggling to eat healthily without causing him agony next time he feeds. any help gratefully received x
It is pretty rare for what you eat to affect the baby (not including caffeine and alcohol, these can affect milk). I would try and rule out other causes before you have to start cutting things out of your diet. How is the feeding going? Is there any discomfort during a feed, can you hear any slurping or clicking noises? Is he gaining weight and having plenty of wet and dirty nappies?
agree that it's very unlikely that it's your diet.
my ds's uncomfortable looking windyness went away by itself when he was about 6/7 weeks old. from what i gather from reading on here andGoogling it is more likely that it can take a wee while for their wee digestive system to mature a bit and settle down.
i haven't changed my diet at all during pg or bf, apart from avoiding alcohol and excessive caffeine.
Hi! My ds had terrible wind problems and i just couldn't get to the bottom of it... Spent a fairly miserable month not eating anything I liked and cutting out alcohol and caffeine... Turns out latch wasn't completely right... I could hear him taking in air ... But hadn't realised positioning him in a particular way stopped it ... Was so relieved when it finally stopped and felt silly that it took 13 weeks for me to work it out! Wind problems will get better I promise. Good luck! (grin)
