Causes Stomach Bloating in Infants

After you read the previous article, entitled "How to Overcome Stomach Bloating in Infants". Now, it is time we understand the cause flatulence in infants.

Flatulence in babies can be caused by several things. Here are some of the cause’s flatulence in infants who need to know.

The food consumed by the mother. Causes of flatulence in infants who are still drinking breast milk, can be caused by food consumed by the mother. So you need to pay more attention to the food you consume. Should reduce or avoid foods that would form the gas after digested as cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, onions or nuts.

Causes Stomach Bloating in Infants

Baby food consumed. If the baby is 6 months old and has already started to eat, you need to pay attention to the food. Vegetables are good for babies, but not all vegetables can be consumed in excess. For example broccoli. Although healthy if consumed in excess, these vegetables can make your baby stomach bloating.

Drink other than breast milk. Drinking enough water is good for the body because it can help a baby defecate. But it is different if in infants aged less than 6 months. They are still not allowed to drink water in addition to breast milk or formula because it can increase the difficulty to get rid of gas from the stomach. Likewise with the juice, the juice can make babies suffered diarrhoea, abdominal pain and excess gas because of the difficulty in digesting the sugar content of the fruit contained in the juice.

Baby pacifier. If your baby is drinking formula from a bottle, you should be more careful in choosing the right dot. End dot is too small or too large can create more air into the baby's stomach when drinking milk and can cause stomach problems such as bloating, or abdominal pain.

You do not need to panic if your baby fussy and abdomen feels hard because of bloating. Just do some ways that can prevent flatulence in infants. But if your baby is very fussy and difficult to be soothed, and show other symptoms, you should consult this matter with your doctor.
