What You See (and Smell): Lots of fussing, grimacing, and gas
The Diagnosis: A gassy baby
Gas is gas. And as smelly and annoying as it is, there's not a whole lot you can -- or need -- to do about it, so long as your baby is eating and growing well.
Treat It: Some healthy foods can make baby gassy. So if you're nursing, avoid broccoli, cabbage, garlic, and onions, all thought to cause gas. A bottlefed baby might benefit from simply swallowing less air -- hold her bottle more upright to let bubbles of newly mixed formula settle before feeding. In times of distress, try rubbing her tummy to get the air moving.
