I have a 9 month old daughter who has been waking up with bad gas the last few nights. She has always had problems with this since starting solids but lately it has been getting worse and causing long periods of crying in the night. She recently tried egg yolk and mango, are these 'gassy' foods?
When she wakes it is with a very urgent 'pain' cry, arching her back and pounding her feet down into the mattress. We rub her tummy and try to bicycle her legs until the wind passes. She is back asleep again almost instantly after it passes (that is why I am certain the NW is due to gas). However sometimes this takes a long time to happen and no one else can sleep with the 'pain' screaming. I guess during the night as she is still it is building up whereas during the day it can make it's way out with her movement. We have a dr. appt. for next week to check it out.
Any tips or recommendations for before bed, or in general? We have tried giving gripe water but it doesn't seem to work very well. She does not usually wake at night, except once to bf.
