How To Relieve Your Babys’ Gas Naturally
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

You will soon find out if your baby is suffering from trapped gas; they will let you know! The discomfort a baby experiences can be intense and left untended can lead to problems such as Colic. Some babies are easier to burp than others but a baby who has trapped gas will be far more cranky than one who hasn't.

Some babies are able to bring up gas themselves but in most cases a baby needs to be burped. Here are 3 of the most common and best ways to burp your baby.

1. Place a Muslin cloth over your shoulder and then place your baby up on it. Then simply pat or rub your baby in the middle of their back, opposite their stomach area. Babies head will be resting on your shoulder and as they are in an upright position the gas should be easily expelled. The cloth should catch any excess feed that baby brings up with the gas.

2. Another effective way is to sit your baby on your lap and support it under the chin with one hand. With the other hand again pat in the middle of babies back or use a massaging circular movement. Always ensure your baby's head is supported, especially if they are too young to sit unaided.

3. Some babies do not seem to burp well in an upright position so you may find this method works just as well. place baby across your lap, facing down (you may want to place a towel or cloth on the floor!) pat baby in the middle of the back or again use a firm circular massaging action.

For older babies, those who can sit unaided and support their head you can try this method; sit your baby on your knee and gently bounce them up and down whilst patting them on the back. This technique can only be used for older babies!

A baby with colic can be in huge distress. Colic usually occurs in a regular pattern, for example at the same time every evening. A baby with colic will usually bring their legs up to their chest in distress and be hard to comfort. Bringing up gas at every feed should help prevent this condition but if your baby is suffering consult your doctor for advice. Another successful treatment for colic is cranial Osteopathy.

As all babies are different so are the techniques which will work best for them. As a parent you are the expert on your baby and together you will find the best way for you.
