Some products cause strong gassing, with the use of others, the formation of gases is virtually nonexistent. Remember, from what food you had before, before pregnancy, there was a fart. Remove this food immediately. Then carefully follow, after what your meal the baby begins to ache. To do this, within a few days, divide the meals, eat separately the soup, after a while separately porridge or meat, to know exactly what product you both are not suitable for now.

The second reason that the tummy of a baby has a pain – The mental state of a nursing woman. It is very important not to be nervous. Mum’s experiences are transmitted to the child, with nervous excitement, his muscles become strained, compressed and hamper the exit of the gazicks from the anus.
