The flatulence of infants is a disease or a physiological feature?
Increased gassing in newborns and toddlers up to a year is a phenomenon that occurs quite often. And in most cases, doctors do not consider flatulence in infants as a disease. Bloating, causing subversive crying – a consequence of imperfection, immaturity of the digestive system of infants. Usually, as the child grows up, the symptomatology weakens, and soon disappears altogether. But colic causes a lot of trouble to the crumb. How can we alleviate his suffering? What line of behavior should parents choose?
Flatulence is a condition where, as a result of disturbances in the functioning of the digestive system, gases accumulate in the intestine. Excessive gas formation is accompanied by bloating, painful colic, eructation, excessive flutulenia (a natural process of removing gases from the intestine through the anus).
In infants in the first 3-4 months after their birth, meteorism is considered a physiological condition. Some systems and organs of the child at the time of his birth have not yet developed, mature. And the process of their final formation passes already outside the mother’s womb, under conditions of adaptation to the new environment.
Lack of enzymes or weak intestinal walls in infants – these are the most probable reasons for the fact that excess food moves too slowly in the digestive tract, begin to ferment and secrete gases.
Organs of digestion in the newborn are in the stage of development. The intestines are populated with microflora, for the first time the mother’s milk enters it. With the help of enzymes, it should split, and thanks to the reduction of the walls of the intestine (motor skills), anything that has not been digested must move to the rectum for defecation.

My advice to you, as twice experienced this - be sure to lay your baby on your tummy! And try not to overfeed it. Feeding should not be more often than once every three hours! If you do not eat and fell asleep - do not wake up, it's better to express the milk, what's left, so it does not burn out. ... And at the expense of products - the main thing is not to eat a lot of flour and sweet, but more unsweetened fruits and boiled vegetables. Very often, the baby's tummy can be blown away simply because you either did not express the milk, and it burned out, changed its properties, or perverted - which also affected the quality of the breastfeeding food of crumbs.
Calm, and only calm! - said Carlson, and I recommend that the mother of two kids)))
The main thing is that you really see and hear how the kid is freed from annoying gas tanks, besides, he learns to do it himself .. it is necessary to select the smallest enema ( cutting off the bottom), very well and a lot of lubricate the baby cream, and literally literally half a centimeter and drive back and forth until you hear the bunches ... Sometimes it happens several times a day to deal with this - look at the child, I rose in the middle of the night if my crumbs, so months before 3. We also had zaporosis - it was not good for us to shit ourselves, we learned from the tube.
