I have a 7 week old and he has always been super duper gassy. I asked the Dr. if I should change my diet and she said she thought it was due to my fast/heavy letdown. When he is drinking I do hear him gulping air down. I EBF and there are several things that were recommended to me to try. You've probably tried these too but just in case:

  • the "I love you" massage technique
  • use a pacifier when he needs to be soothed. If he's done feeding and is just on your breast for comfort, try getting him to take the pacifier so he doesn't wind up swallowing extra air while latched to you.
  • Use a bottle to feed at least occasionally. This will help with gas prevention in general, and there are some bottles that are designed specifically to prevent gas.
  • Gripe water
  • Mylicon
  • When BFing, use a position that reduces the amount of air he'll swallow. Side-lying is what everyone I talked with agreed is best.
  • Bicycle kicks
  • more tummy time
  • more burping
  • Windi product. This takes some maneuvering but sometimes it's incredible! Instant relief. I actually use a generic version that's exactly the same: BodyHealt Baby Colic & Gas Relief - 20 Pack Hollow Tube All-Natural Solution - 100% Safe & Effective, Immediate Remedy/Solution for Colic, Constipation, Intestinal Gas & Bloating Problems

    I'd love to hear what other people have tried and recommend.

Using a swaddle cloth may help. These are some sleep sacks with arm flaps that worked wonders for our son when he got too big for swaddle cloths:

One issue babies have with the crib (which should have nothing but a fitted or tucked sheet on it unless a pediatrician says otherwise for your specific child), is that they can't feel the sides around them, mainly with their arms/hands. This can easily activate their fall reflex, which is the same thing that makes you feel like you're falling sometimes when you're passing out on the couch watching tv. A six-month-old has been able to feel his/her surroundings for longer than they've been out in the world, so that reflex is still pretty active. A loose-ish swaddle cloth or sleep sack (with the flaps) pulls their arms in so the reflex doesn't activate in their sleep so easily. If it's still bad, some will suggest putting a foam wedge under the sheet to prop the baby up against so there's a little bolstering. This can help some, but only do it if necessary; you don't want them dependent on it.

Babies' sleep improves significantly once they learn how to roll over to their stomachs, where most babies like to sleep. When he/she starts doing that, leave off at least one arm free so they can roll themselves into this position (you shouldn't lay them down that way). Studies have shown that this rolling over right before you fall asleep is a sort of systems and surroundings check and that it greatly helps overcome the fall reflex in babies once they gain that skill.

Also, make sure your crib is prepared correctly. A swaddle cloth can become a suffocation hazard if it comes loose (that's why we prefer the sack). Instead of using loose blankets for added warmth, use warm pajamas, which should fit tightly enough that they won't pull over the chin while fastened (zipped, buttoned, etc.). A white noise machine by the crib works wonders–professionals estimate that the womb is about as loud as a vacuum cleaner to the baby, so they're used to the constant noise. Try to start differentiating naps from overnight sleep; your baby might think he/she is just taking a nap and not sleep through the night. We use light music and keep a normal noise level in the rest of the house during naps. Complete dark and just white noise for overnight.

Hope this helps!

Cloth diapers - flour sack towelsfrom amazon as the stuffers - cheap and clean easily. Bamboo liners for the poop. Rubber gloves for swishing it in the toilet for the parts that don't come off with the liners. Lot's of covers that can be used from newborn to 35 lbs. You can use any bum cream if you use the flour sack towels as well FYI because it doesn't ruin them. Also pick up a couple of these laundry bags. Wipes.

Cleaning is easy - "quick wash" with a bit of soap, then a hot long wash for extra soiled diapers.

Baby nest was nice to have but not a necessity. Blankets/towels can help. Also a wrap is nice for the first 6 months but not necessary.

Gripe water for gassy baby, Punkin Butt teething oil

A pump, even hand pump will be handy. Especially in the first few weeks she's regulating her supply.

Zip up sleepers (snaps suck)

Baby Bag (backpack style)

Don't worry about a baby changing table, you can change anywhere. Don't worry about a diaper genie since you're cloth diapering.

Breastfeeding scarf/carseat cover

Older baby (6-12 months will come fast)

- snack containers

- Food holder thing(frozen bananas are awesome for teething)

I'm the father of my first 1.5 month old. We have several products that no one should live without.


Close second:


Last and most certainly not least:

White Noise Free: sounds for sleep and relaxation by TMSOFT

There is also a Google play version of this app.

We have "heavy rain pouring" playing on my old nexus 7 about 75% of the day. It is the most amazing thing I've ever seen. It instantly calms her down.

I would love to help more. I can give you my Amazon baby registry if you'd like. I can tell you what you should and shouldn't buy off of it. Let me know if I can help.

Personally these cups worked the best for us. Our toddler is over 2 now and we still love to use these.

We got this one for our daughters small room...8x8? I’m not sure, would have to measure. Anyhow, it’s very nice and has served us well. I think it could fit that amount of toys.

What are you looking to spend? If money is no object, get a Snoo bassinet! If that’s not realistic, we’ve loved this light/white noise machine- Hatch Baby Rest Sound Machine, Night Light and Time-to-Rise It’s programmable and you can turn it on remotely to help get your baby back to sleep without going into its room. We love ours!

You could mount this to the outside of the stairs side and to the wall on the other side. this one is a little shorter. might work better.
