    Gas drops?

    How early did you use them?

    Um, about a month with Nikaia, when we switched her to formula. Haven't used them with Kalista. She is 7 weeks.

    I've never used them, but I have a friend who used them within the first month (also when they made the switch to formula).

    I've never used them. She has bad gas but we just use tummy massage and waist bends.

    My ped. Told me not to use them at all. He told me apple juice diluted with water, just an oz or so. The girls were I think 7 weeks, if I remember correctly. We also did tummy massages and leg stretches.

    Landon didn't have any issues until more recently so I think the first time I used them was around 10 or 12 weeks. We used gripe water though until about 2 weeks ago we switched to actual gas drops.

    Like 3 weeks. They were useless compared to gripe water-- that's what really worked with her. Started the gripe water at like 4 or 5 weeks.

    Because I had to switch my baby girl to formula, I had to give her gas drops starting her first month (not happy about either, but I had no choice). Now that the Ped switched her to Soy, baby girl is doing much better and we barely need the gas drops.

    I don't use them. If Marguerite gets gas we do what we did with the others. We rub her tummy and move her legs like she is pedaling a bike.

    Then we put her on her tummy for tummy time and that usually gets it out. lol
