Picture complete silence and deep sleep to the point of dreaming. Perhaps in that dream you’re relaxing on a beach, enjoying a fruity drink and deep into a new novel. Then an ear piercing noise shatters it all and startles you awake.
Every mom reading this can probably relate to that moment. It’s happened numerous times (different dreams though!) throughout my 6 years of parenthood for one reason or another. But one really common reason? Gassiness. Honestly, I can’t blame either of my children for being fussy and waking me up in the middle of the night for this.
Thankfully there are now more options to help ease those gassy moments during all hours of the day. I’ve relied on Gas Drops since my son was an infant after a recommendation from our pediatrician and still use them with my daughter. While in Target last week purchasing a new bottle, I found that Little Remedies® offers a brand new product, Advanced Colic Relief Drops, to aid further in calming little tummies.
I typically grab the Gas Drops from the Digestive Health aisle close to the pharmacy in my store, but forgot until I was in the back of the store and checked the Baby section instead where I found all 3 Little Remedies® products for gas relief – Gas Drops, Gripe Water, and the new Advanced Colic Relief Drops.
While neither of my kids has been colicky, nothing is worse than seeing your baby cry (especially in the middle of the night) with their back arching as they fight the pain from gas. I’ve learned a few “tricks” over the years to help prevent and ease gas pains:
- spending time after nursing with my daughter upright against my body and gently patting her back as I rock her or walk around the room. Sometimes just moving her to an upright position is enough to push out that burp!
- slowly introducing new foods and backing off any that show signs of causing her discomfort;
- laying her on her back and helping her “bicycle” with her legs and/or massaging her belly gently in a clockwise position to help work out bubbles;
- using Little Remedies® products as needed.
I keep the Little Remedies® drops on a shelf by her diaper changing table so they are quick & easy to get to anytime, but particularly in the middle of the night when I don’t want to be fumbling around. Also, this keeps them safely out of reach of both her and her older brother.
