Gas (ballooning) prevention in babies

Find out what are the main measures you must follow at each baby's meal and after that, to prevent gas buildup and tummy aches!

The transition from breastfeeding to solid foods can exacerbate colic and trigger some unpleasant digestive symptoms. Beyond eating and how you design your baby's meals, there are other steps you can take to reduce the amount of gas that builds up in the baby's intestines and causes the painful cramps associated with colic:

  • the diversification of the diet does not start earlier than 4-5 months;
  • take care of the position and the way the baby catches the nipple or nipple, when breastfeeding or feeding with the bottle (even if the diversification of the diet begins, the milk remains the main food in the menu);
  • help the child to clear the gas by erupting (hold the baby on his shoulder after each meal and beat him or gently massage him on the back for several minutes, to remove the air swallowed during the meal, but also excess gas);
  • allow the child to rest between 30 and 60 minutes after each meal, to allow digestion time to process the food;
  • do not offer large portions of food to the baby and do not force him to eat everything, if he gives signs that he does not want it (overeating contributes to the digestion, bloating and the appearance of uncomfortable colic).

Infacol is designed to eliminate the severe pain and colic caused by excessive gas and swallowing of baby air, thus providing a quick remedy against stomach pain and abdominal distention in infants.
