Baby sleeps to much/ gassy baby
I'm a first time mom and was concerned my baby sleeps to much. He is 12 weeks old and at the very most he is only awake for an hour and a half, usually its much less (during the day). When I hear about other babies they seem to be awake for longer periods. I try to wake him up after 2 hours of sleep during the day. And try to feed him every 3 hours, even then he only wants to breast feed for a short time. He is very fussy at the breast. It can be very hard to burp him, I try different positions. He is very gassy. Gas drops/ gripe doesn't seem to help to much. My doctor said it's prob not anything in my diet and it should go away on it's own. What were your experiences with a gassy baby? I just started to do leg exercises. His poop is really running. But I know that can be common for breast milk babies. Sorry for all the questions!
As for the gassy, it could be normal, or you could have ate something without thinking about it. Common gas problems are tomato products, dairy products, broccoli, even slightly spicy foods. Carbonation got to my babe in the first few months, but she's ok with it in small quantities now.
I would give the gassy a few more weeks and if nothing is helping then try elimination diet, one food group at a time then slowly reintroduce. The poop is normal, if you eat nothing but liquid, yours would be runny too. :)
I let mine sleep, too. They will wake up when they are hungry. Take advantage of all the sleep and rest up yourself, too. Or take the time to get housework done. :) Enjoy it while it lasts.
Don't apologize for the questions. :)
