Rebecca Charlton (Lactation Educator & Registered Dietitian, Childrens Hospital Los Angeles) gives expert video advice on: How do I know if my baby has gas?

How do I know if my baby has gas?

A baby who has gas will typically pull its knees up to its chest and curl into a tight ball, and let out a very high-pitched scream. If the baby has gas, it will be a very distinctive cry, and the first time you hear it it'll scare the life out of you. What the baby's really saying is "My tummy hurts". Usually, if you really want to know, the baby's stomach will be a little bit hard to the touch, and if you massage it you'll probably get that high-pitched scream again.
