My 13 year old DS just asked me a question that is hilarious but has got me thinking!!!

He asked if the baby farts while its in my tummy?

I've been telling them all the info I've been getting from all sorts of websites about when baby can see/hear etc. and he is fascinated with all of it, especially when she gets hiccups. I've never seen anything about farting though LOL! I know baby could have a poo while in labour because he (DS) did it and came out covered in meconium (sp?).

Anyway, does anybody have any idea about this? I'm fascinated to know now!!!

isn't farting because of undigestible gases?

if it is then no they don't fart as they are getting what they need via the placenta so no digestion needed
